Eco Friendly Cloths
These amazing cloths are the original Swedish Dishcloth from Sweden, printed with local original New Zealand art by 5 designers.
Durable, biodegradable, super absorbent and each cloth will replace 15 rolls of paper towels in their lifetime. One roll of paper towels can cost $1.30 in a combo pack x 15 rolls = $19.50
SPRUCE starting to look a little grubby? Try this; place the cloth in the bottom of your sink. Spray with an all purpose cleaner and leave for a few minutes. For very stubborn stains you can use a diluted whitening based cleaner. It will NOT affect the print!
