My niece gave me is Swedish dishcloth last Christmas. I had never seen or heard of them before, but I've used it a lot sincecthen and I like them very much. Previously, I couldn't find a dish washing piece that I've liked. The sponges with the harsh bases, that 3M makes, get very smelly. Rags get overly soggy andcare not very attractive. But the Swedish dishclothes are very good; they are sen can be used either for cleaning dishes or wiping up spills; are decorative; they are easy to wring out, so they don't become smelly.
The only drawback to the Swedish dishclothes is that they dry out quuckly and quite thoroughly, so they aren't ready to use instantly; they have to be moistened every time you want to use them.A very small drawback.
Very pretty and absorption is way better than a paper towel.
