Compostable sponge cloths by If You Care


Each pack contains 5 cloths, made from cellulose, unbleached cotton, and a natural mineral salt which make the cloths incredibly absorbent.

Use to wash dishes, clean up spills, and general household cleaning. Each cloth replaces up to 15 paper towels and can be machine washed up to 300 times.

The cloths themselves can be home composted at the end of their useful life. The wrapper is cellophane. According to the manufacturer it requires industrial composting rather than home composting. If your local council doesn’t offer this facility please let us know and we’ll send them unwrapped and compost the wrapper for you.

If You Care 100% natural sponge cloths are made in a patented process from three-dimensional blending of cellulose (plant fibre), non-GMO unbleached cotton, and mirabilite – a natural mineral salt. In production the mineral salt is washed out, leaving the remaining blend extremely porous which makes the cloth extraordinarily absorbent. It can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water.

Why use If You Care natural sponge cloths?


There is no better or more effective cleaning cloth for kitchens, countertops, bathrooms and general household cleaning. It is the perfect carrier for water, soap and any disinfectants. It absorbs liquids easily and releases them with simple wringing. It is remarkably durable, tear and abrasion resistant, reusable over and over again, and can be machine washed in water up to 88° up to 300 times.

The environment

Each cloth is reusable and rewashable many times, replacing up to 15 rolls of paper towels. These sponge cloths reduce waste and the amount of material going to landfill. The packaging is a biopolymer made from corn starch which is certified compostable leading to a further reduction in waste, greenhouse gasses and diversion from landfill.
