Invented by a Swedish engineer in 1949, dish towels are reusable, biodegradable, and incredibly affordable, not to mention highly effective. These dish towels, which usually retail for $19.99, are machine washable and dishwasher safe, so they can be used over and over again. And because they’re composed of renewable and natural fibers, specifically 70% cellulose and 30% cotton, dish towels dry in the air much faster than sponges, so germs and bacteria (and their accompanying odors) have not had time to develop them.
