When she came home from visiting family over Christmas, my BFF brought me a Swedish dishcloth. She knows I’m trying to go green, and it qualifies as a “kitchen gadget,” which she knows I’m always up for.
This is what it looks like –
Cute, right? I love the design, but I’d never heard of it before. Here’s the label from the back.
It expands, I can wash it, its eco friendly, made in the USA, biodegradable, and washable. What’s not to love here?
So I decided this evening to give it a try. It starts off thin. Feeling a bit like those expanding towels that you find in the dollar store.
It’s definitely not the same thing. It doesn’t change size. It does expand and holds a TON of water. I used it to wipe down the counters, and it did a great job, and I even wrung it out and went back to wipe up a spill and it soaked it all up.
I’ll keep using this and we’ll see how it goes. But so far I’m really impressed and intrigued.

They’ve got SUCH cute designs (I love the turtles and the vikings). They aren’t cheap, which does make me pause. I know it says they last through 200 washes, or for about a year. Maybe that would even out the cost? I’m still leaning towards making the roll of fake paper towels from birds eye cotton cloths snapped together. We’ll see.
Have you tried these before?
