I've bought these more than once. That tells you a lot. They last (until your kids lose them!)... I have never had to toss one. You just have to wash them as needed. You can drape one over a cup or bowl on the top rack of your dishwasher and they come out sanitized. (note: cleaning may not remove stains.) To clean them without a dishwasher, I recommend an oxy clean type product. Put half a scoop or less into a dish wide enough to lay the sponges flat, then add warm or hot water to dissolve. Leave the sponges to soak for a short while, then rinse them until they don't smell like the cleaner, let them dry, and you're good to go.As you can see in my photo, I hole punched in one corner so I can air dry them. As you use them, rinse and wring every time. The less time they spend wet, the cleaner they stay.
This is not just a sponge. The size they made clearly was designed for optimal cleaning, absorbing and scrubbing purposes. Any larger, it’d be difficult to handle and wont slide over surfaces as well, too small, it’d not be substantial enough in the hand. When cleaning countertops or flat surfaces, the little ‘nubby’ patterns grab dirt and small particles so well that you wont have to keep passing over the same spot over and over. It makes cleaning so much more efficient. But more important, it is super easy to rinse off with soap and water and dries super fast. Im still using same ones from April and no signs of needing retirement. I wouldn’t mind if they started making these in a slightly larger size purely for picking up spills. Other paper towel alternatives in the market are larger, but they’re much thinner and wont do the job of simply sopping up spills even as well as this smaller size. An incredibly useful and long lasting product for little money.
These are freakin awesome! I still use papertowels when I need to absorb grease from food. But I use these cloths for everything else I would nornally have used for cleaning. The packaging indicates that the cloth and packaging itself are both compostable. It is a product of Germany so rest assured, it is NOT manufactured in China. I like to use these around the sink and line them in areas where there is a lot of water drippage, like under the faucet knob. Some of the cloths might have white streaks in them but it doesn't affect the absorbency at all. Its just the way the fibers were mixed during production. I've washed mine multiple times in the washer and they hold up well. The packaging does indicate that you should not put them in the dryer. I accidentally threw them in the dryer the 2nd time I washed them and they ended up shrinking. But even though they shrank, they were still useable and still absorbed liquid just fine. They are very absorbent and strong so they're a perfect replacement for papertowels for use on cleaning duties like scrubbing the stovetop or microwave (I use dishsoap and water). They don't disintegrate like a papertowel would, they don't leave behind bits of paper or lint, they dry quickly (but not flat) when you wring them out completely, they're much easier to wring out than a dishtowel, they rinse out any debris extremely easily, they're larger than the more expensive printed styles which brings me to my last point which is that they're cheap! At close to just 1 dollar and some change, they are significantly less expensive than the designer cute printed cloths advertised as Swedish Dish Clothes. I was gifted one a few yrs ago with a lovely gnome design on it. I didn't actually start using until recently and noticed that it was much smaller than the If You Care brand. The function is the same but seriously, there's no point in paying more for a cleaning cloth when you can get it cheaper. Plus, if you have a dog like mine, you might be replacing them every so often. My dog has nabbed two clothes so far because she's a brat and think its OK to use them as chew toys LOL I ordered 4 packs two months ago and I just ordered 3 more packs today since I like having a giant pile before I do kitchen laundry.
I quite purposely took one sponge sheet out with the sole purpose of "running it into the ground." A zillion dishes and counter wipes later, it is almost like new. In the future, I will, more quickly demote them for other cleaning projects. My kitchen cloths are not allowed to touch anything other than dishes, stovetop and counters. I simply nip the corner to denote a sheet not to be used on dishes. After use, rinse with cold water, and place where they dry quickly. I use vinegar in my dishpan, which inhibits excessive suds. This allows me to squeeze dry, without rinsing, to wipe in between dish washing, as well as disenfect sheet, and avoid stinky cloths. They are compostable, something becoming more important to many. I've seen decorative sets that are triple the cost and fewer in the set. Live with plain green for more bang for the buck. Save the planet and your hard earned money. I'm done with handiwipes after a decade.
My first experience with this type of cleaning cloth was with the Skoy ones. They were excellent and now all I want to use are that type of cloth. I really do love the Skoy cloths and they hold up! When I saw these, I liked that the price was lower *and* that there are 5 in the pack (vs 4 for the Skoy). I was worried that these might not be as sturdy. No need to worry. These look a LOT thinner than the Skoy but once you wet them, they are the same size and thickness as a wet Skoy. I love using these because it saves me from wasting paper towels. I clean my sink and countertops and the microwave as well as washing the dishes with these. I did notice from using the Skoy that, while these last a long time (I've had the first ones for over a month) and I use them every day, all day. Instead of buying a large set of paper towels, I now just buy a couple of rolls to keep around. In the photo, you can see the new IYC cloth and the very used Skoy cloth held up (I still use it) really well.
I love these! I use them daily now. When they get dirty I throw them into the washing machine with my other laundry and they come out pretty good. I dry them too in the dryer. Saving a lot on paper towels!It feels good to know that when I do finally throw them out they are biodegradable. That means I'm not going to cause any long lasting problems with these.
These are absolutely amazing!!!! Super absorbent, wash dishes / countertops etc so well! I'm going to order another set to use just for cleaning!I just wish they came in different colors- lime green doesn't really go with my kitchen lol. BUT THEY ARE PERFECT! I used to have to wash my old dish rags frequently as they didn't rinse well - these get super clean just rinsing them with water after usage!
I have been using every day for about a month now the first sponge out of the 5 pack. It is the very best I've ever had. Far superior to the thick sponges. The thin cloth is easily manipulated for dish washing and cleaning kitchen appliances. I use it to hold steel wool when doing pots. Wipes without leaving any streaks. After wiping up blueberry juice and spilled coffee, is stain free. As bright green as new. Simply put in dish water with a bit (tablespoon or less) bleach. I also microwave for three minutes to disinfect. It still shows no wear or tear. When this package gets low, will certainly order more. I would like a neutral color, such as off white or light beige, or like that, but why be picky on a superior product no matter what color it is. I would give it more stars than five.
These are holding up really well so far. I've tried 3 brands and while these are newest, so far they seem like they'll hold up most closely to the big brand name I'd originally purchased (the first alternative I tried shredded in the wash).
