If you’ve never used Swedish dishcloths, you don’t know what you’re missing. These eco-friendly, reusable cloths perform exceptionally well for any number of household tasks, they’re machine washable and best of all, they come in a large variety of cat designs!

Swedish dishcloth features

  • They can be washed in your clothes or dish washer up to 200 times.
  • The are made from 100% all-natural wood pulp and renewable cotton fibers and are biodegradable. If you have a compost pile, simply toss them in there after they’ve outlived their natural life span.
  • They are super absorbent! They can absorb 20 times their own weight in liquid! Just think of all those paper towels you’re no longer sending to a landfill.
  • The ways you can use them are pretty much endless. They’re great for cleaning or drying dishes, cleaning up spills or even cleaning your floors.


I’ve been using these cloths for several years now, and I love them. I did learn the hard way to not toss them in the dryer: they shrink a lot and I ended up with a miniature dishcloth.

These cleaning cloths are available from Amazon in a huge variety of patterns.

    they stain and its hard to get it out. wash them in machine and they become limp and can be torn easily.

    I have never heard of this product. Thanks for the head’s up on it. I’m all for something that can do multiple jobs and save some money. We do go through a lot of paper towels here.

    Wow! As a Swede I didn’t know this kind of dishcloth is marketed as Swedish, but they sure are cute : )

      That’s too funny, Maria! I always wondered whether these dishcloths really originated in Sweden. Apparently, naming them was just a clever marketing ploy since here in the US we tend to associate Sweden with eco-friendly living (even before Greta Thunberg.)

        I love items with cat designs. Thanks for the head up on this. I’ll be buying this for my hubby, who cleans up a lot better than I do .
