Tips and Tricks for Using Your Tirtyl Towel at Home

by Tirtyl Team

Keeping a clean home can be a never-ending task, but having the right tools can make it much more manageable. One essential tool for cleaning is a reliable cleaning cloth. Many options are available on the market, but Tirtyl Towels, also known as Swedish dishcloths, are a popular choice for their versatility and effectiveness. In this article, we'll discuss what Tirtyl Towels are, how to use them, and how to clean them to keep them in top condition.


What is a Tirtyl Towel?

Tirtyl Towels are a type of cleaning cloth made from a combination of natural cellulose and cotton fibres. They are eco-friendly, durable, and highly absorbent towels, making them an excellent alternative to traditional cleaning cloths or sponges.

But what sets Tirtyl Towels apart from other cleaning cloths on the market is their sustainability. Unlike microfibre towels, which are made from synthetic materials like polyester and nylon, Tirtyl Towels are biodegradable and compostable. So when they reach the end of their lifespan, you can simply toss them in the compost bin, and they will break down naturally over time without releasing harmful chemicals or plastics into the environment.

Tirtyl Towels are an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to most cleaning towels, many of which are made from plastic (for examplemicrofibre cloths!) and take hundreds of years to decompose. Tirtyl Towels are a renewable resource that can be reused repeatedly, helping to reduce waste and minimise our impact on the planet.

In addition to being eco-friendly, Swedish Dishcloths like the Tirtyl Towel are versatile and effective cleaning tools. They are highly absorbent and can hold up to 20 times their weight in water, making them ideal for cleaning spills, wiping surfaces, and washing dishes. They are also durable and long-lasting, able to withstand repeated use and machine washing without losing effectiveness.

Overall, Tirtyl Towels are an excellent choice for anyone looking to reduce their environmental impact and adopt more sustainable cleaning practices. By switching to Tirtyl Towels, you can help reduce the amount of plastic waste in our landfills and oceans while enjoying a durable, effective, and eco-friendly cleaning solution.


How to Use Your Tirtyl Towel?

One of the best things about Tirtyl Towels is their versatility. They can be used for a variety of household cleaning tasks, including:

  • Cleaning mirrors and windows. Simply wet the cloth, wring it out, and wipe down the surface to remove dirt or streaks.
  • Cleaning kitchen countertops. Tirtyl Towels are the perfect cleaning towel for your kitchen. They absorb spills quickly and are gentle on surfaces, so they are great on kitchen countertops.

How to Clean Your Tirtyl Towel

To keep your Tirtyl Towels in top condition and extend their lifespan, it's important to clean them properly. Here are a few ways to clean your Tirtyl Towel:

Wash It in the Washing Machine

Tirtyl Towels can be machine washed with your regular laundry. Wash them in warm water with a mild detergent, and avoid using fabric softeners or bleach. Tumble dry on low or hang to air dry.

Hand Wash Your Tirtyl Towel

If you prefer to hand wash your Tirtyl Towels, you can do so using warm water and a mild detergent (we recommend our Tirtyl Laundry Sheets!). Gently rub the cleaning towel to remove any dirt or stains, and rinse thoroughly. Squeeze out the excess water and hang the towel to air dry.

Wash It in the Dishwasher

Tirtyl Towels can also be washed in the dishwasher. Place them in the utensil basket and run a regular cycle with your dishes. Be sure to avoid using any harsh detergents or bleach. We recommend using our Tirtyl Dish Tabs, which are made of plants and minerals. 

Tirtyl Towels are a versatile and effective cleaning tool that can help you keep your home clean and tidy. From wiping down kitchen counters to washing your car, Tirtyl Towels are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to disposable cleaning cloths. With proper care, your Tirtyl Towels can last for months, making them a smart investment for any household.
