I ordered several of the 5-packs in neutral colors without a design to add to my gift baskets filled with homemade treasures. My husband is a chef and including one of these along with my fermented mustard, herbal tea blends, bread and jams seemed like an obvious choice!
My son just moved into his first apartment and chose some of these cloths as part of his housewarming gifts. I'm all about the bling so I ordered some with a design for myself -- you know, taking advantage of the shipping.
Swedish Dishcloths are the best on the market. I've tried some from 2 different grocery delivery services as well as Kroger. The Swedish Dishcloth I bought 3 years ago(a souvenir from Portland, OR) is still going strong and has not torn or crumbled. I only use it to wipe up spills, not scrub, but my kitchen and bathroom cloths get a lot of use and have lasted a very long time. I usually get tired of the design before they wear out.
Easy to clean in the dishwasher or pop into the clothes washer & dryer along with other kitchen towels or napkins.
