Twist Sponges

As you might have guessed, I do a lot of cooking. Which, in turns means I do a lot of cleaning. We don't have a dishwasher and the stove is constantly getting splattered with sauces and syrups not to mention the counter tops and the Kitchenaid. I really hate using paper towels to clean up spills and things but using a dish towel sometimes seems like overkill. Enter the European Sponge Cloth by Twist. As the packaging says, it is what would happen if a paper towel and a sponge had a baby. It is flat-ish and very absorbent. It is also the perfect size: it can clean up a fairly large spill but it isn't unwieldy. I also love their naked sponge line, it is made with no dyes and is 100% cellulose (tree fiber sourced from renewable tree farms ) . All of their products including the loofah sponge (made with natural loofah) were designed to be as effective and ecologically sound as possible, including the simple packaging which can be turned into a bird feeder.

What's not to love?
