Dish Cloth - Spruce

The Green Collective

Regular price $8.90 Sale

A superstar environmentally friendly dishcloth doing good things for our planet and your home.

  • Streak and lint free
  • Super absorbent (holds 15x its weight in liquid)
  • Washing machine and dishwasher (top rack) safe
  • Wash 200+ times
  • Quick dry (very hygienic so no smell or slime)
  • Replaces 17 rolls of paper towels
  • All natural 100% plant based
  • Traditionally screen printed with non-toxic inks
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable
  • Home compostable in just 5 weeks

Each Spruce cloth will last 9-12 months, replaces 17 rolls of paper towels and countless plastic sponges and microfibre cloths, saving you time, money and reducing landfill waste.

Spruce Cloths soften in water, absorb up to 15 times their weight and dry quickly so they don’t breed bacteria or smell like some cloths can.

Use for washing dishes and general cleaning everywhere from your kitchen to bathroom and more! (We don't recommend using the same cloth for bathroom and kitchen cleaning, pro tip: choose a different design for each so you know which is which.)

Care:

Durable enough for repeated machine wash (200+ times), or place on the top rack of your dishwasher. (< 90ºC). Rinse well after use to prevent discolouration. Squeeze out excess water and hang to dry quickly.

Size:

Standard - 17 x 20 cm
Super - 26 x 30 cm (Super - Spots photographed alongside Standard Bikes - Orange for scale)

Materials:

Made from 100% natural and renewable materials: cellulose blended with cotton and water based inks. (70% natural FSC wood cellulose and 30% cotton offcuts).

No packaging other than a small label with product details.

Common sense

It's common sense to buy things that are beautiful, practical and last! These clothes are rewashable (I use the washing machine) and last about a year. That's pretty darned good!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts, Helen! We really appreciate it and all your wonderful support.
