Like any kitchen product, you have to use the Swedish Dishcloth in order to understand its advantages. Made of wood fiber and cotton, it does function like a durable paper towel and is useful for wiping and cleaning. It rinses out well and seems to be odor resistant. Dries out stiff, softens when wet. I like this item and would consider buying it again.
So happy I made the change.
Smaller than expected
Love using them. Love that they dry fast and do not smell.
