These organic bamboo dishcloths are a great eco-friendly alternative to the common microfibre and cotton dishcloths. Microfibre cloths in particular release millions of microplastics down the drain when they are washed.

Brand Story: These bamboo dishcloths are sourced from a UK company called Plastic Phobia who are carbon neutral. Their bamboo products are made in China out of bamboo mostly harvested from the factory’s local mountain. This mountain is protected by the state so the bamboo forest is maintained in a sustainable way. The factory’s meet local and national labour laws and so the manufacturing of their products boosts the local economy with local labour and local bamboo.
Organic Bamboo Dishcloth
What does it replace and is it an improvement?
Bamboo dishcloths are an alternative to the common dishcloths used in the kitchen. From what I have seen on the high street, most dish cloths either come made of a cotton blend or microfiber which is made from polyester (plastic). Although these can be machine washed, I would advise not to as research has shown that this can release thousands of microplastics into the water.
Bamboo is naturally antibacterial so they don't tend to smell anywhere near as quickly as normal dishcloths - I don't know about you, but I HATE the damp dishcloth smell. The main positive with these bamboo dishcloths is that they can be popped in the wash regularly to keep them fresh and clean, whilst knowing that they are made with natural bamboo.
I used to get my dishcloths from Wilkinson's. A pack of 8 mixed fiber dishcloths are £2.00, making each dishcloth £0.25. These are nice and cheap so perfect for people who love a bargain, or don't like to spend too much on cleaning products. At £1.49 per bamboo dishcloth, this seems to be a lot more expensive, however I've found that they last longer, and it's worth it for me just to avoid that horrible damp dishcloth smell.
What is my review?
I started using these dishcloths over six months ago. I have had three on the go since then as I find rotating these seems to work best for me. One on the go, one in the wash and one that's there ready 'just-in-case'. They are over six months old and have been washed mutliple times and they are still in good condition so I think are well worth £1.49 each. And the best part is, they don't smell!
