By the way, Lina gives Swedish Dishcloths her seal of approval, too!

“I have been using my Swedish dishcloths for a few months now and love that they eliminate the need for paper towels when it comes to basic kitchen cleanups on a daily basis, and they don’t stink either! It’s like using a cloth and sponge combined, as they are incredibly sturdy and absorbent!

I use them to wash dishes and to keep my kitchen counters and appliances nice and clean. Being a food blogger, I am constantly cleaning up and these are such a handy tool to have!”

Here are all the reasons we love Swedish dishcloths –

1. Swedish dishcloths are eco-friendly and replace paper towels.

Unlike paper towels and napkins that we throw away on a daily basis, Swedish dishcloths are eco-friendly. They can be washed and used hundreds of times. Can you imagine how much money they’ll save you on purchasing paper products?!

Speaking of saving money, be sure to read this post on 10 things to STOP buying now to save $35K over 10 years!

2. Because of their composition, Swedish dishcloths are biodegradable.

Since they’re made of cotton and cellulose, they can be composted once they’re past their lifespan. I don’t know about you, but I’m all for reducing paper waste wherever I can.  🙌

3. These thin, sponge-like sheets are hygienic and oh so easy to clean.

Swedish dishcloths are super easy to clean by hand, but you can also throw them in the washing machine or dishwasher. They dry lightning-fast and don’t get gross with bacteria buildup like a lot of sponges do over time.

“Wonderful. The best dishcloths I’ve ever had. They last forever, never have a bad odor, and are simple to clean.” -Amazon reviewer

4. These multitasking Swedish dishcloths can clean up practically anything.

Spilled milk, crumbs, pollen, sticky maple syrup… there’s not much that these magical towels can’t clean up. You know those paper towel commercials that promise maximum absorbency and end up disappointing? These things are heavy duty and actually get the job done!

I will say that while I’m now using these towels instead of a sponge, I still use a scrub brush to handwash things like casserole dishes that require a bit of extra cleaning power.

“I love these Swedish cloths!! My daughter introduced me to them. They are awesome! They are so absorbent and dry fast. I may never use another dishcloth.” – Amazon reviewer

5. Swedish dishcloths are versatile and can be used on so many surfaces.

Messy bathroom? Dirty walls? Swedish dishcloths to the rescue! I keep a couple in my bathrooms because heaven knows, my kids will never stop making toothpaste messes on the counter.

Their material also makes them great for cleaning glass or stainless steel and leaving no streaks behind.

6. You can find these cleaning cloths in a medley of different colors!

If you care about the aesthetics of your cleaning products, you’ll be pleased to know that Swedish Dishcloths come in a variety of colors and designs.

I chose a multi-colored pack to add a vibrant pop to my kitchen and bathrooms, but check out some of these other color options!

“These cloths are so cool! They’re stiff when dry but then become totally pliable when wet making them act just like a paper towel, yet they’re reusable. They save so much in the long run on disposable paper towel costs, too.” – Emily at Hip2Save

7. Swedish dishcloths make great gifts.

In my younger years, things like clothing and beauty products were all I wanted to be gifted. Now, I want anything that simplifies my life and brings more order to my home.

I bet you a spilled cup of grape juice that your mom, neighbor, and friends will love the gift of spotless counters via the Swedish dishcloth. Use them as a stocking stuffer during the holidays, a housewarming gift, or add them to a gift basket for a present that keeps on giving. 🎁

8. These sponges are worth their weight in gold.

Calling all penny pinchers! Swedish dishcloths are surprisingly affordable—you can get a multi-color 10-pack that’ll last a year or longer for just $16.95. On the other hand, you can get a pack of sponges that lasts 1-2 months for about $7.

9. Swedish Wholesale has the sweetest customer service.

My Swedish dishcloths arrived on time and with the sweetest thank you note from the business owner, which made this purchase even more special! I sure love being able to support small businesses.

  3. saver

    Emily is so hot, love her fashion and tattoos.

  4. Chrissy Goff

    I grew up with these in Germany and loved them. My mother used to mail them to me but now I can get them here. Yippee.

  5. samfs

    Target one’s looks more thicker and I have been using it from so many months and they’re super durable👌

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Iryna

    I used to use them (they were called kitchen rags) in Europe and you could buy them anywhere. We do not use paper towels at home here, just kitchen towels that we launder often. Thank you for the chance

    Whole Foods & Amazon sells a brand of these sponge cloths called “If You Care.” They’re made in the same factory in Germany as the Swedish sponge cloths, apparently. They’re $5.49 for a 5-pack with Prime, and a little less at Whole Foods — if anyone wants to try them to see if you like this kind of product, it might be better to try this smaller pack of them.

  8. Sharon A.

    I’m German and I’ve been looking for this in every store since living in New Jersey. This Swedish clothes is very common in Germany and even our store provide a whole aisle of cleaning products.

  9. Lisa

    They are showing up 19.95 for me

    • Keisha R Mosley

      Me too! 🙁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know!

    • Ana

      What was the price? I might just wait if they go cheaper.

  10. Betsy

    I bought these on your recommendation and don’t like them at all.
    I bought Williams Sonama’s un-paper towels and they are wonderful!
    These are hard and don’t absorb or wash well. Not at all worth the hype in my opinion.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! SO sorry you didn’t care for them, Betsy. Thanks for the honest review.

    • SamIam

      They give them good reviews because they get paid when people buy them.

  11. Court!

    I found a two pack at my local Kroger for about $3…. a different brand but still Swedish cloths. A good deal if you just want to try them out before buying a big pack…

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks for sharing your find with us!

  12. Kristi

    I purchased these last time this was posted. I love them! I choose them every time over my regular dish cloths. Highly recommend them!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks so much for the recommendation! Glad to hear you have been loving them!

  13. Hipgrandma

    2-pk is $6 at Meijer so this is a good deal

  14. Heather

    FYI Trader Joe’s carries similar ones that are only a few bucks for a 3 pack and I love them! They wash up great when you run them through the dishwasher too :0)

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing, Heather!

  15. Jennifer DuPont

    I’ve had mine for about 5-6 months and I feel like I need to replace them. Stains aren’t coming out and they’re looking ratty.

    • Kim

      Same. They stain very easily, they get smelly, and I hate how much water I have to use to get them to soften enough to wipe something down.
