About Ecovask Cloths
Where are Ecovask cloths made?
Ecovask cloths are manufactured to our specifications by an ethical company in South India. Holding numerous global certifications pertaining to fair trade regulations, employee health and welfare and Global Organic Textiles certifications.
We have personally toured all the production houses associated with production of textiles.
These cloths are then brought to New Zealand, where they are locally packaged.
Are Ecovask cloths eco-friendly?
Yes, absolutely. Ecovask knitted dishcloths are 100% biodegradable, made from organic cotton, and colored with non-toxic dyes. They carry zero risk of microplastic contamination, ensuring they won't harm our precious waterways. Additionally, they are made from Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) cotton.
What sets Ecovask cloths apart from other cleaning cloths?
Ecovask only uses certified organic cotton in our cloths which is far better than standard cotton for both the environment and cotton farmers health.

ABSORBENT AND VERSATILE
Ecovask cloths are super versatile and can be used for various cleaning purposes.
From washing dishes to wiping spills and cleaning surfaces, these cloths are suitable for granite, stainless steel, glass, wood surfaces, kitchen appliances, coffee machines, and more.
They even serve as excellent face and hand cloths for messy eaters.
How long do Ecovask cloths last?
You can enjoy our #bestdishclothsever for at least 18 months, and many cloths continue to perform well even after 2 years or more. Despite regular washing machine and tumble dryer usage, they remain durable. When their lifespan is over, Ecovask cloths are also biodegradable.
How to take care of your knitted dishcloth
Avoiding smelly dishcloths
The comment we here the most (after these are the best dishcloths ever!) is that they don't smell!
Which is true however, you do need to follow the basic care principles below to ensure a long-lasting love affair with your cloths.
After you’ve used your cloth, rinse in clean water, ring them out and hang it to dry in your sink.
Ideally you don't want to stash wet dish cloths under the sink as they need air flow to dry in between use.
NB: If you don't like hanging your dishcloth over the tap then check out the super-stylish HAPPY SiNKS dishcloth holders. They're a marriage saver!
How often should I wash my cloths?
Ideally you should change your cloths out each day for ultimate hygiene. Hang your used cloths to dry in the laundry or soak them into a bucket with water and 1/4 cup white vinegar until wash day.
We recommend washing your Ecovask cloths as you would your kitchen towels in 30-40 degrees C.
NB: We don't recommend washing your dishcloths in the dishwasher as they end up holding the dirty dishwater.
Can I put them in the dryer?
Yes, they will survive the tumble drier perfectly!
Using a tumble dryer to dry your dishcloths and towels is the best way to keep their shape and feeling soft.
(Tip: just running your towels through the dryer for ten minutes will help create a softer feel than straight line drying).
If you’re drying your cloths on a line, we recommend hanging them by folding over in the middle rather than pegging the corners. Alternatively dry them inside over a heated towel rail.
