Reusable Dishcloths: Our Top 4 Tips

Making the small change to use reusable dishcloths, was one of the best moves I ever made. They are stronger, last longer and cost less than the pack of blue cloths we use to buy from our supermarket. I knit a range of reusable dishcloths at Apikali. The are made from 100% cotton and come in a cute range of colours.

You can also use other cloths as reusable dishcloths, including Close Bamboo Wipes or Bummis Flannel Wipes. Check out our other blog on what makes a great reusable dishcloth!

Now lets explore how to simply care for your reusable dishcloth. Follow these simple tips that we use at home.

1. If your dishcloth is cotton, it may go stiff in hot sun. Dry it in the shade to keep them soft and subtle.
2. Change your dishcloth daily. Wash daily.
3. If you think your cloth needs to be steralised, wash a cotton dishcloth on a hot washing cycle and dry in the sun.
4. Don’t use your dishcloth to clean up raw egg, raw meat or chicken. These love to breed nasty germs. Use a paper towel or a separate cloth to maintain our families health.
