Kitchen Cleaning Cloths have high absorbency to get the job done quickly and efficiently

Update:19 May
A good microfiber cloth is a durable and inexpensive tool that works well on all kinds of messes, surfaces and jobs. It's also important to choose a MF that is made of high-quality materials with low-pile that won't leave lint behind.

These patterned kitchen towels look like classic dishcloths but have the absorbency of microfiber. They wring out easily and dry quickly, making them perfect for drying hands or wiping up spills. They're machine-washable and get softer after every wash.
Dish Cloths

A dishcloth or tea towel is a simple way to clean up kitchen surfaces like counters and tabletops. Choose from cloths made of soft cotton that won't leave scratches or streaks on dishes and glassware. Or, find a kitchen rag made of a cotton and linen blend that's eco-friendly and durable. Both options have high absorbency to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Dishcloths also work well for wiping down the sink or for soaking up a spill. Many feature a colorful motif that will brighten up your workspace and look great stacked on open wire bins or hanging from a hook in the kitchen.

Since they're used over and over again, dirty kitchen rags can harbor bacteria and start to smell. Frequent cleanings and boiling in hot water will keep your rags clean and fresh. To sterilize your cloths, add them to a pot of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes. This will kill mold, mildew and germs so you can continue using them.
Countertop Cloths

These cloths are a great kitchen cleaning tool to have on hand for scrubbing counters and wiping away messes. They are often made of a blend of polyester and polyamide or nylon (depending on the brand you choose), which makes them durable and washable. You'll want to follow care instructions specific to your particular cloth set to make sure they stay highly absorbent and lint-free.

Use them to dry dishes, wipe countertops and polish surfaces. They are also useful for dusting pantry items and removing smudges from screens. These reusable cloths are more environmentally friendly than paper towels, which are typically thrown away after a single use. Plus, they have the added bonus of smelling fresh and being more effective at reducing bacteria than traditional sponges. A Norwex countertop cloth can pick up crumbs and splatters, scrub stubborn stuck-on goo, and even disinfect surfaces without the need for chemicals. These durable microfiber towels can be washed up to 20 times before needing laundering.
Microfiber Sponges

This double-sided sponge includes a scrubbing side that can be used to scrub dishes and baked on food stuck to pans and a smooth microfiber side for general cleaning. Microfibers are thinner and can be more effective than regular sponges in picking up dust particles. They also dry quickly, cutting down on bacteria build up.

These reusable sponges are a smart upgrade to cut down on paper towel use and benefit the environment at the same time. They can be used to clean counters, appliances, mirrors and glass surfaces. They're even great for removing fingerprints from windows and doors. Store them with different colored towels to keep track of what surface they were used on.

Keep in mind that sponges need to be washed frequently and discarded when they start to develop permanent stains or odors. They may also grow harmful bacteria if left wet on countertops or in storage. Remember to wring out and air dry sponges thoroughly after every use.
Fabric Towels

Cotton is a great towel material because it’s plant-based, super soft and absorbent. It also holds dye color well and gets even stronger when wet. However, it’s a thirsty crop that uses lots of water to grow. And cotton plants don’t have natural defenses, so they need to be sprayed with pesticides.

If you’re interested in using 100% cotton towels for kitchen tasks, choose ones that are organic and GOTS certified. Look for tightly-woven towels made from ring-spun or spun and twisted long-staple cotton fibers. These towels are soft and absorbent enough to dry dishes and prevent lint and watermarks.

Other options include looped terrycloth towels, which are also soft and absorbent. You can find them with a wide variety of hem and trim options, including lace, satin and embroidery. And don’t forget about flour sack towels, which are perfect for speeding up drying time and preventing water spots without leaving lint. Towels should be regularly rotated and kept clean to minimize bacteria buildup, so it’s a good idea to have separate kitchen towels for hand-drying and cooking tasks.
