Eco-Friendly Sponge Cloths

Do thin, “eco-friendly” sponge cloths made from cotton and wood pulp work as well as a heavy-duty kitchen sponge?

We tested two biodegradable cloths against a leading household sponge made of synthetic cellulose and nylon. Both eco sponges were far more absorbent than the household sponge. The two biodegradable sponges soaked up almost a ½ cup of spilled water and 1/3 cup, respectively, while the household sponge picked up little more than ¼ cup. Both sponge cloths swept up a large pool of barbecue sauce from the countertop, leaving few streaks behind, while the household sponge mostly pushed sauce around. Another plus: Hot, soapy water erased all traces of barbecue sauce (including its sour, smoky smell) from the cloths, while smells and stains lingered on the traditional sponge. After multiple cycles in the dishwasher, both of the biodegradable sponges surfaced unscathed.

WINNER:  Skoy Earth Friendly Cloth – Our winner is super-absorbent and easy to clean.

Testers’ Comments:  When dry, this sponge cloth appeared flimsy and brittle, but once wet, it easily swept up spilled barbecue sauce, then rinsed clean in a snap. It is non-toxic, chlorine-free, washer/dryer safe, and can be sterilized in the microwave.

Composition: Natural cotton and wood-pulp cellulose

Water Absorption: 1/2 cup

  4. Numerous people today wiol probably reveal you the fact that binary trade is some sort of rip off and this is usually because they
    have already been burned in the previous years. Binary options trading may
    be not gambling. When most people trade on binary options you actually
    have virtually every chance to explore your own chosen sector and alkso make valid predictions on the active trends regarding products.
    That caan being suggested, you must not be involved in binary trade until you get done enough study tto invest with belief.
