FAQs

What is microfiber?

Microfiber has taken the world by storm. This fabric is a lean, mean, cleaning machine that'll help you sop up messes and get your goodies spotless — soap is optional! Microfiber cloths are made from millions of teensy tiny fibers which act as little "hooks" that pick up all manner of dirt and gunk without any cleaning sprays, powders, or liquids.

Microfiber cloths are even antimicrobial, and they can remove up to 99% of bacteria from the surfaces you use them on. Use them to clean your furniture, counters, your car, and your dishes.


What are European dish cloths?

Ever heard of European dish cloths? These nifty cleaning towels, also known as Swedish dish cloths, are currently experiencing their 15 minutes of fame. They fall somewhere between a cotton towel and a paper towel. You can use them for months before they begin to disintegrate. Once you can't use them anymore, toss 'em in the trash or compost them! Because Euro cloths are made from natural fibers, you can put them in your compost bin and turn them into fertilizer for your garden.

Use European dish cloths for everything you'd use a paper towel or dish towel for. Clean your mirrors, sop up messes, wipe down counters, wash your dishes… you name it, you can probably use a Euro cloth for it.


Is it eco-friendly to use paper towels?

Ah, paper towels. They're so handy! But it's easy to get caught up in the convenience paper towels provide and overlook the impact they can have on the environment. Instead of reaching for your go-to six-pack of paper towels made from trees, consider opting for sustainable alternatives to these kitchen staples.

Bamboo paper towels are super popular because bamboo is a quick grower that has a smaller environmental impact than traditional paper towels. Reusable paper towels, like Euro dish cloths, are another great option. We rounded up the best paper towels you can use as an alternative to the regular variety.
