Every kitchen and bathroom needs a cellulose cloth. These amazing cloths are thicker and stronger than paper towels, can absorb 15x's their weight, and can be reused for months until they're ready for their retirement years in the compost bin.

One cellulose cloth can replace 15 rolls of paper towel - that's right! I said ROLLS, not sheets! So you'll also be saving some cash-o-la as well as lessening your impact on the environment. 

Cellulose clothes can be washed up to 200 times (!) with your laundry or in the top rack of your dishwasher (or hand washed if you're into that sort of thing) and then hung to dry. They dry firm, but soften up with water. 

Our cellulose cloths are 70% cellulose and 30% cotton, which makes them 100% biodegradable, and 100% awesome.

How are cellulose cloths eco friendly?

Paper towels don't appear to be inherently bad. They can (and should!) be made from post consumer recycled materials and can (and should!) be composted after use.

Unfortunately, they are not as unassuming as they seem - you can read more about them here.

In a nutshell, they're still a single-use item that requires our natural resources to produce. One ton of paper towels uses and pollutes 20,000 gallons of fresh water.

They're also wrapped in plastic and take up a lot of space to store and ship, which both contribute to a larger carbon footprint than cellulose clothes.


Conventional sponges are very porous and don't dry easily. This makes them the perfect breeding ground for bacteria... and then they're rubbed all over our dish wear...🤢

How to use and care for your cellulose cloths

Cellulose clothes can be washed and reused up to 200 times.

To clean, you can either add them to your laundry or in the top rack of your dishwasher (or hand washed if you're into that sort of thing), and then hung to dry.

They dry firm, but resoften with water. 

  • Smaller carbon footprint

    Bulky paper towel packs have a high transportation carbon footprint. A single cellulose cloth easily replaces an entire pack of paper towels.

  • Plastic Free

    Microplastic Free

    Actively eliminate microplastics from your daily cleaning routine, supporting a healthier environment for your family and our planet.

  • Savings with reusables

    A small change to save your change

    Each cloth replaces 15 ROLLS of paper towel, and costs about half as much. That's just easy math.

Endlessly useful!

It's like a hybrid between a sponge, a paper towel, and a rag, and has become my go-to for any mess, spill, drip, dust, or dirt! I bought a 5-pack to have one in the kitchen, one in the bathroom, and always have spares in the wash or ready to be called into action. Super affordable compared to competitors and cute enough -- just don't expect them to stay perfectly white, even after washing. I do wish they had a little hang loop, but I'll get around to stitching them on myself...eventually.
