The problem? The cloths are so worn out that they don't have much absorbency left in them - but now that we've added the Euro Cloth to our collection of cleaning cloths we rarely reach for the paper towels at all. We picked them up recently and they work really, really well for both daily and deeper cleaning.
The Euro Cloth is essentially a super skinny, large format sponge - which is reusuable, anti-bacterial, washable in the dishwasher, and completely biodegradable at the end of it's useful life.
Here are the details:
Euro Cloth #20: With the absorbency of a paper towel and the reusability of a sponge, the Euro Cloth #20 is a modern and eco-friendly solution for wiping even the messiest of spills. Made from sustainable pine trees, the Euro Cloth is long lasting (one Euro Cloth equals 17 rolls of paper towels), anti-bacterial, dishwasher safe and biodegradable (the Euro Cloth disappears after 7 weeks if buried in the soil).
TWIST products are all natural; the cellulose used to make TWIST products is sourced from renewable tree farms. In addition, TWIST takes special care to make sure 99/97% of all waste is reused in production, and is committed to continually improving production process to minimize the effect on the environment.
The suggested retail for a 3-pack of Euro Cloths is $3.99. They are on sale at our Whole Foods right now for $2.69, so we've stocked up.
