What's a Swedish Dishcloth?

The original Swedish dishcloth material was invented by a Swedish engineer in 1949. Three Bluebirds dishcloths are made with this same material: 70% wood cellulose from FSC certified forests and 30% cotton.
All of our patterns are designed and screen printed in Connecticut, USA.  

Replaces paper towels + sponges

  • 3,000 tons of paper towels end up in our country’s landfills every day.                                                   One Swedish Dishcloth replaces 17 rolls of paper towels.
  • It absorbs 20x its weight.
  • It is far more hygienic than a sponge and won’t crumble or pill.
  • It air dries quickly, so it doesn’t breed bacteria or smell.  

Cleans most household surfaces

  • Perfect for household chores, from cleaning up spills to polishing.
  • Can be used with just water, soap, or cleaners.
  • Cleans counter tops, granite, stainless steel and glass.

Can be washed 200 times

  • It can be cleaned in the washing machine or in the top rack of the dishwasher.

  • Hang over the faucet or lay flat to air dry. Do not tumble dry.
