 is the eco-friendly Nordic dish sponge cloth that will clean dishes more efficiently than a normal sponge - made with renewable, biodegradable materials.

WASHCLOUD® is a Multipurpose Sponge and Kitchen Cleaning Helper:

In addition to being perfect for dish washing, WASHCLOUD® sponge cloths can also clean your kitchen surfaces and wipe up spills. Works wonderfully on counters, sinks and stovetops. Use for anywhere you'd use a normal sponge. A fast-drying washable sponge like ours will prevent that old sponge smell caused by built up food and bacteria.

Sponge cloths have been widely used in Scandinavian households and kitchens since being invented by a Swede in 1949, and are now becoming popular outside of Europe. These ultra-absorbent hybrid products can absorb 15 times their weight in water. WASHCLOUD® sponge cloths can replace 10+ rolls of disposable paper towels which is a huge money saver and saves the carbon emissions impact of cutting down trees for disposable paper products.

How to use:

Wet cloth (it will puff up a bit with the water) and rub on the DISH BLOCK® bar to soap up, then wash dishes as you would with a normal sponge. The advantage of this product is the larger surface area, which cleans more quickly and efficiently than a smaller sponge.

After washing with it, rinse it clean and squeeze dry, then lay to dry on a towel rack or on the edge of your counter so it can dry fully between uses.

For stuck on foods, we recommend our CASA AGAVE® pot scrubbers.

Sanitizing instructions:

Wash in the washing machine (and air dry) or in the top rack of the dishwasher. Rinse well after each use. Cellulose fibers will shrink slightly when dry.

End of life:

Use the WASHCLOUD® until it begins to fall apart, we find it can last several months even with frequent washing in the washing machine.

Contains 1 WASHCLOUD® sponge cloth | 6.75" x 7.5" dimensions | can last for months and dozens of washes in the washing machine | water-based inks | cellulose/wood pulp cotton | 100% biodegradable & home compostable | manufactured in Germany

Washclouds are the best!

Washcloud sponge cloths are the best! And NoTox Life has the best selection of colors and prints. Monstera Flora is a favorite—the saturated colors remain vibrant for a long time. I use them for everything, especially wiping my counter, dishwasher, and fridge and cleaning light spills on the stove. I save worn-out ones for spot-cleaning my floor. Easy to clean in the dishwasher, and no mildew smell, ever. Once you switch to these, you'll never go back!

love it!

I love the texture and use it to wash dishes and wipe off counters. It rinses out nicely and washes nicely as well. This will be the only dish cloth I will use from now on.

Perfect for hard to reach spots!!

I bought this in conjunction with the bamboo brush heads because the cloths get into the hard to reach places!! These are amazing! Love how they instantly feel like a wet cloth and then dries quick after use! I just bought a second one! These are lifesavers! I love all the fun prints and for the price they are a great buy!! Highly recommend!!!

Love how quickly these dry

I received a free sample with an order and am back to buy more. It’s that time of year when my cotton dishcloths don’t dry quickly and start to smell. I have a hard time getting the smell out so am switching to these. I just wish they were a couple inches bigger in each direction. They’re a little small when I’m wiping the table.

Super Cleaner

The wash cloud is part sponge part dish cloth. It’s easy to get wet, easy to wring out and great for dishes and countertops clean.

Handy sponge cloth

I enjoyed using this sponge cloth. It is just the right side for small clean ups. It rinsed out well and dried very quickly. However, it became discolored after a few weeks' use and even though I washed it in the washing machine it was still very discolored. So I threw it out.

The white background of the cloth is made of cotton and cellulose (from wood pulp) so if you use it for wiping up things that could stain like coffee, wine etc, it will naturally darken a bit over time. Similar to how a kitchen towel will be darker if you use it for wiping up stain-able messes. So we do recommend to keep using it as long as you're letting it dry between uses. Washing will sanitize it to take care of bacteria that can accumulate when cleaning messes.

For us we tend to keep these around for 6-8 months or longer until they start to fall apart to get the most out of them.

At end of life you can compost it at home where it will break down into usable soil. In the landfill, organic waste like this is entombed (has little to no oxygen access), which means it will not break down quickly, just like putting food in the trash that goes into landfill. We do recommend composting it or burying in the garden if you have access to a space to do that.
