Beautiful cotton cloths that are the perfect alternative to the disposable synthetic dishcloths
How to take care of your knitted dishcloth
Knitted dishcloths aren’t the same as disposable cloths or sponges.
Here’s how we suggest you make the most of your #bestdishclothsever
Rinse and hang to dry in your sink after use
After you’ve done the dishes, rinse your Ecovask dishcloth in clean water, squeeze out and hang it to dry in your sink.
Look super-stylish and make life easier by using one of these dishcloth sink holders.
Wash them every 2-3 days
Then throw them in with your tea towels for a wash.
A hot wash is best (no more than 65 degrees Celcius).
If you’re using a cold wash, soak them in water and 1 tsp vinegar for half an hour before washing them. Or put wet dishcloths in the microwave for 1 minute to kill any bacteria.
Don’t wash your dishcloths in the dishwasher (they end up holding the dirty dishwater).
Make sure they’re dry
After washing, make sure you dry them. On the line or in the tumble drier. Yes, they’ll survive the tumble drier perfectly!
Using a tumble dryer to dry your cloths will keep them soft.
If you’re drying them on a line, hang them by folding them in the middle rather than pegging the corners (it helps keep the shape). Or dry them inside over a heated towel rail.
How to use your knitted dishcloth
Wiping up spills
There’s nothing more annoying than going to mop up a spill just to find your cloth isn’t actually mopping it up. It’s just moving it around the surface!
Ecovask dishcloths are very (very) absorbent and soak up spills easily. Remember though, they’re not a sponge so you’ll have to squeeze them out more often.
Dry cloths are the most absorbent, so it's a good idea to have a spare cloth or two in the drawer waiting to be used.
Just use your natural dishcloth as you would any other dishcloth.
Or stand by while you watch someone else do the dishes for you! (dream)
Cleaning appliances & bench tops
For best results when cleaning stone bench tops or stainless steel surfaces, I use a slightly damp cloth or alternatively, spray the surface with your favourite cleaner.
Then take a dry cloth to wipe down the stone surface. This should give you a perfect, smear-free finish.
Mopping up mucky eaters!
Dry or damp, Ecovask #bestdishclothsever is fantastic at mopping up the mouths (chin, cheeks and hands) of enthusiastic eaters!
They’re soft and pliable so won’t scratch sensitive skin.
