If you want to reduce plastic and waste in the kitchen, our reusable compostable cloths are a great place to start! Use them instead of disposable paper towels for wiping up mess and spills (each cloth holds 20 times its weight in water); replace plastic dish cloths for cleaning worktops and washing up; or use them to polish surfaces. You can expect a virtually streak-free finish when cleaning counter tops, granite, glass or stainless steel. The cloths dry out rapidly when left to air dry. This means they will also be less likely to breed bacteria and smell, and they won’t crumble or pill.
This listing is for our WHALE dish cloth in blue. When designing the cloths, Battle Green kept in mind the sea animals most negatively impacted by ocean plastic. In 2018, a Sperm Whale washed up in Indonesia with over 13 pounds of plastic in its stomach.
These plastic-free cloths are made in Sweden, with cellulose from sustainably sourced wood cellulose and cotton fibers that are too short for the textile industry. They are 100% biodegradable and compostable, and our designs are printed with environmentally friendly water-based inks.
More cloth designs are available in our shop, as well as a multi-pack option. Each cloth measures 17.5 x 20cm.
All Battle Green products are sent using biodegradable, plastic-free packing materials.
Care Instructions: As required, wash your cloth in the top rack of a dishwasher or in a washing machine (30-60 degrees), air dry (tumble drying is not recommended), and keep reusing. At the end of its life, the cloth can be cut up and composted. The materials will break down and return to nature in around six weeks.
