Many of us have become hyper-focused on ensuring our houses are dirt and germ-free. To achieve this, we buy endless cleaning products, wipes, paper towels and sanitisers, but what if there was a simpler, greener solution? Enter the biodegradable cleaning cloth. 


What are Biodegradable Fabrics?

A biodegradable cloth refers to fabrics that decompose easily and naturally, using microorganisms like bacteria and fungi. Natural materials include cotton, wool, and leather, with each one able to disintegrate via a natural process. 

So, how does this benefit you and your cleaning routine at home? Using a biodegradable cleaning cloth will not only enhance the way you tidy up, but it will also reduce your carbon footprint, as they won’t be spending years on a rubbish heap. 

Benefits of a Biodegradable Sponge Dish Cloth 

To help you fully understand the many advantages of using a biodegradable cleaning cloth in your household, here are some key benefits you can expect. 

Reduces Landfill Pollution

One of the most impactful advantages of using a biodegradable cleaning cloth is the immediate reduction in landfill pollution. Thanks to their ability to break down naturally, these cloths pose a very low threat to our environment.

Reduces Indoor Air Pollution

Cleaning with biodegradable cloths means you can rely less on the common household cleaning chemicals that are probably filling up your laundry cupboards. By using fewer chemicals, you are actively improving the air quality in your home, with fewer fumes and artificial particles present. Your body says thank you!

Less Water Usage

Their unique composition means that biodegradable cleaning cloths require less water to get the job done. Say goodbye to constantly refill buckets and sinks to do your general cleaning, with only a few splashes of water necessary.

No Deforestation 

Are you guilty of using endless rolls of paper towels to ensure everything is as clean as possible? If so, switching to a biodegradable cloth will help save hundreds of trees and actively contribute to reducing deforestation. With this simple switch, you are helping to protect a healthier, greener earth for the future. 

Durable and Reusable 

Unlike other cleaning options, biodegradable cloths are tough and long-lasting. With so many machine washable designs available, there is no reason you shouldn’t love these super absorbent reusable products.
