I was tired of germ laden sponges and I love washing dishes so these reusable dishcloths made of 70% Cellulose wood pulp and 30% Cotton caught my eye. They are 100% compostable and biodegradable. The towels hold water up to 15x their weight, and are versatile cleaning helpers: use them to clean dishes, kitchen surfaces and appliances, bathrooms, countertops, windows, furniture, plants, and much more. Measurements: 6.75" x 8". Designed in the USA. These cloths are naturally anti-bacterial. Toss them in the washing machine or place them in the top rack of your dishwasher to give them a thorough cleaning. They typically last 2-3 months with average wear and tear, but they can be used up to 6-12 months or up to 200 wash cycles. Dishwasher and machine washable at 60 degrees. Avoid tumble drying and fabric softener as they cause shrinkage.
