Both functional and sustainable—the Ten and Co. Swedish Sponge Cloth is the ultimate kitchen accessory and depending on use, can last anywhere from 3-9 months!
Once the dishcloth has reached the end of its useful lifecycle, it can easily be composted in a home or industrial compost. Leaving zero waste behind!

These cloths can be washed in the top rack of a dishwasher or the washing machine and should be laid flat to dry. We do not recommended drying your Sponge Cloth in the dryer. Avoid storing wet or damp sponge cloths in dark places with lack of air circulation as it is important they dry completely before being stored away.
- This product comes package free and may include a recyclable bookmark with care instructions.

I wish it is true that they last up to 12 months, I would be happy if they last half that long. I’ve bought a few, and they are absorbent and easy to clean, and the colors and designs are lovely. However, they get holes in them within a month of gentle to moderate use (I mostly use them for putting under my kitchen tap handle to soak up the water that drip from wet hands, and to wipe the surrounding counter area occasionally). And also the sides crack, I think because when they dry they become hard. I really do love them but can’t stand that they don’t last for that price. I might try a different brand and see if this is a Swedish cloth problem or a brand problem.

We would be happy to send you a new cloth to test out, as you might have received a defective one.
