The Swedish Dishcloth or the Eco-Friendly Dishcloth, which is typically made of 70% wood cellulose and 30% cotton, and is capable of being reused hundreds of times without losing its effectiveness. The cloths are often used in Nordic countries like Sweden and Finland to replace paper towels.

They absorb up to 20 times their water weight and they dry quickly. Just hang them over the faucet or lay flat to air dry.
