Theses cloths do the job!
Great set of sponges. Work well for mopping up spills, drying off the counters and dry quickly. When your done you can just pop them in the wash.
I'm really trying for the plastic-free kitchen and bathroom cleaning and My Little Eco Shop offers brilliant alternatives.
I usually use standard dishcloths but of course they go in the bin at the end of their lives and probably stay in landfill for ever and a day. But these little cloths are compostable so once they're done with, I won't feel bad when I throw them out. I use them in the kitchen and the bathroom and so far they're great.
I ordered four of the Wildlife Rescue ones originally - love that they're making a donation too - and they're really sturdy and wipe up brilliantly. They're not huge but they're a lot stronger than they look and will wring out and not tear. I put the one I use for the dishes in the dishwasher from time to time to give it a good scrub!
I've just ordered some more of these with some more cleaning bits and bobs as I won't be going back to regular dishcloths now. The patterns are cute too! :)
I will be happily purchasing more as they are great cleaning cloths which have actually lasted longer than the plastic based one I used previously. Great product
