If you’re looking to cut back on your use of paper towels, now is as good a time as ever to try our super absorbent Swedish dish towels. Ten packs of cult-favorite paper towel alternatives are on sale over the next few hours on Amazon for a starting price of $12.95—a price that pales in comparison to the amount you’ll save on restocking paper products, not to mention you’ll make a positive impact on the planet.
Invented by a Swedish engineer in 1949, they are reusable, biodegradable and extremely affordable, not to mention highly effective. These towels, which usually retail for $19.99, are machine washable and dishwasher safe, so they can be used on the tamper over and over. And since they’re made of natural, renewable fibers, specifically 70% cellulose and 30% cotton, dish towels air-dry much more quickly than sponges, so germs and bacteria (and their attendant odors) don’t have time to grow. With them.
When we tested Swedish dish towels for ourselves, we found them to be highly absorbent (you can see them in action here) and extremely versatile—in addition to being a kitchen staple, our reviewer found uses for them in the car, with pets, kids, and more.
