Go Swedish with the Washing Up
We came across Marie and her Swedish Dish Cloths at a Trade Show several years ago. We were attracted by their bold, but simple designs and as soon as we got talking and discovered the story, we knew we wanted them in our lives. It has taken us a while to add them, but there are lots of reasons why we are so pleased that we have. Here are just a few:
- Cellulose and Cotton are totally natural materials and, as well as making a fabulous cloth to use, they will also compost back to nothing at their end of their useful life. When you have had enough of your cloth, just chuck it on the compost heap and it will rot back to nothing.
- They last for ages! When they get dirty, just chuck them in with the washing and they come out looking and feeling like new.
- They work brilliantly. Somehow they are just the right size and they wipe surfaces leaving them beautifully smear free.
- They look great. Scandinavians know a thing or two about design and the simple, happy colours look great in a coastal interior.
It might seem ridiculous to get so excited about such a small thing, but we all spend quite a lot of time washing up and cleaning the kitchen, so it’s rather lovely to find a product that makes this a more sustainable activity and looks great into the bargain.
