These wonderful sponges can replace single use paper towels in your kitchen. We love them because they are multi-purpose, are robust and not only are the sponges compostable at end of life but so is the packaging they come in! Read below for more details on these eco friendly gems.
DESCRIPTION If You Care Sponge Cloths are made in a patented process from a three dimensional blending of cellulose, non-GMO unbleached cotton and mirabilite – a natural mineral salt. During the production process, the mirabilite is washed out, leaving the remaining blend (70% cellulose & 30% cotton) extremely porous, which makes the sponge cloth extraordinarily absorbent. It can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water.
CLEANING There is no better or more effective cleaning cloth for kitchens, countertops, bathrooms and general household cleaning, available anywhere. If You Care Sponge Cloths leave no streaks. They absorb liquids easily and quickly and release them with simple wringing. They are remarkably durable, tear and abrasion resistant, reusable over and over again, and can be machine washed in water up to 90C, up to 300 times.
THE ENVIRONMENT If You Care Sponge Cloths and their packaging are made from 100% renewable resources and contain no petroleum or other fossil fuel products. Each cloth is reusable and washable many times. These sponge cloths reduce waste and the amount of material going to landfill. The packaging is a biopolymer made from corn starch which is certified compostable in commercial composting facilities, leading to a further reduction in waste, greenhouse gasses and diversion from landfill.
USE & CARE Rinse cloth and wring out excess water to increase absorbency. Use with water, soap and water, or any household cleaner. After using, rinse thoroughly, wring out water, and leave flat to dry. Cloth can be washed at temperatures up to 90C in dishwasher or washing machine with normal loads. Do not use chlorine bleach or chlorine products. After washing, leave to air dry. Do not tumble dry.
