This Spruce cloth with the Green Orb design has been created by Artist Bec Brown at Clouds of Colour.
The Green Orb Spruce Cloth is super absorbent and wonderful for washing up, cleaning up spills, wiping down bench tops and more! Ditch those bacteria harbouring plastic sponges for some artist designed zero-waste spruce cloths.
Months! Typically about 12 months. Don't worry, just because they are compostable it doesn't mean they break down quickly in your kitchen. These cloths can be cleaned in the washing machine or dishwasher time and time again and they won't even begin to break down. They need the bugs and bacteria in your compost bin to begin the process of composition.
Spruce cloths are made from 100% natural cellulose blended with cotton. That makes them 100% biodegradable and home compostable. Hip hip hooray for zero-waste living!
These Spruce Cloths soften when wet and can absorb 15 times their own weight! They dry fast so they don’t breed bacteria or smell. This makes them the premier cloth for use in the kitchen.
The Green Collective are also very proud to have no additional packaging on their spruce cloths. They are NOT individually wrapped, meaning even less waste being produced. Wahoo!
The team over at Green Collective also likes to support its local Nelson artists, and have collaborated with Belle Hawk, Clouds of Colour, Moore Design and Plum Jam Design to bring you some original art to brighten up your kitchen.
If your cloth ends up in the dryer it will look crinkled and shrunk, but don't worry, just wet it again and it will return to it's usual size and shape.
If you want to seriously sterilise your Spruce Cloth, ensure it is WET and place into the microwave for 2 minutes.
Take care removing as it will be very hot!
You can use the cloth with or without cleaning products. Harsh cleaning products will not remove the print colour. Hot, soapy water will remove traces and smells from most of the sauces, spills and kitchen accidents.
Don't forget the benefits of hanging the cloth out in the sunshine and let mother nature work her wonders.

I love these reusable and disposable cloths. They are thin enough that I can "feel" what I am cleaning, but thick enough that they don't break. Plus, they rinse out really easily. At the end of 2-3 days, I throw the cloth into the washing machine and grab a new one. So far, they have held up well in the washing machine. At then end of 4-5 months I don't feel bad about throwing a cloth that is extra dirty into the garbage. It has been a great buy for me, and Kelly's attention to detail with response times around questions, handwritten notes and packaging with my orders ALWAYS brighten up my day! Thank you Kelly!
