Why Swedish Wholesale?

Messes are inevitable when it comes to the kitchen. From bread crumbs to leftover juice, there’s bound to be something on the countertop. That’s where dishcloths come in. That’s right, you can use them for more than just the dishes—they’re also great for cleaning various surfaces. Just add a bit of soap and you’re ready to go.

If anything, they are an essential item. What else would you use to clean the kitchen? Paper towels? Now that’s just wasteful! But if you stop and think about it, dishcloths eventually also go in the trash as well (they get soiled pretty quickly). So then, what should you use? The answer is—Swedish dishcloths.

What are Swedish Dishcloths?

Never heard of Swedish dishcloths? We don’t blame you. Sure, they were invented several decades ago (yes, in Sweden), but it wasn’t until recently that they became popular in the United States. Essentially, they’re dishcloths made out of cotton and cellulose. What is cellulose? It’s a type of substance that you can find in plants. Given that cotton also comes from plants, this means that the dishcloth is 100% organic (most conventional dishcloths are made from synthetic fibers). Swedish dish cloths can also be referred to as cellulose dishcloths or sponge cloths.

As you can imagine, these types of dishcloths are much better for the environment. How? They are biodegradable and can be put in the compost at the end of their life span. You won’t have to worry about them going into the landfill! Why use polyester dishcloths when you can use something that can be reused by the soil?

Why are our Bulk Swedish Dishcloths Better than Regular Dishcloths?

At Swedish Wholesale, we are proud to offer our customers the highest quality of Swedish dishcloths. The truth is, there are certain qualities that make our products stand out from the rest—especially when compared to regular dishcloths.

1. Swedish Dishcloths are Naturally Resistant to Odors

One of the biggest problems with traditional dishcloths is that they are prone to developing odors. Ultimately, this is due to the fact that they tend to remain moist and wet, even when not in use. In contrast, our Swedish dishcloths dry extremely quickly. As a result, odor-causing bacteria has less of a chance to grow and proliferate.

2. Cellulose Dishcloths are Anti-Microbial

That brings us to our next point—they’re also anti-microbial. You probably know this already, but bacteria tend to grow in wet environments. Thanks to the quick-drying properties of cotton and cellulose, though, bacteria are much less likely to grow on our dishcloths. This means that you won’t have to worry about spreading bacteria and germs to your worktops and stove either (as is often the case with regular dishcloths).

3. They are Super Versatile

Our Swedish dishcloths are incredibly versatile. Much softer than their regular counterparts, they can be used for a variety of purposes both in and out of the kitchen. For instance, you can use them to wipe the tiles inside your bathroom, to get rid of the dust on your bookshelf, or to clean spilt juice from your sofa. You could even bring it outside and use it on your car!

Non-abrasive, they can also be used on delicate surfaces such as glass—it will not leave any streaks or scratches. Ultimately, what this means is that you can use them on your windows, windshields, and mirrors.

4. Sponge Cloths are Super Easy to Clean

The cotton and cellulose blend that we use for our dishcloths is very easy to clean. As a matter of fact, there are multiple ways that you can go about cleaning it.

One of the easiest ways to clean them is to put them in the washing machine. Yes, you can just treat them like another piece of laundry! Just be careful of color bleeding. Pour in a small amount of detergent as normal and the Swedish dishcloth will come out looking as good as new. There might be a tiny bit of shrinking over time, but that will not affect its efficacy.

Don’t want to use the washer? No problem—you can also sanitize it by putting it in the microwave for one to two minutes. Simply dampen it with water before putting it into the machine; the high heat (not the radiation, interestingly enough) will eliminate most, if not all of the bacteria on the cloth. Never put a dry Swedish dishcloth into the microwave as that is a fire hazard.

The third way is to wash it in the dishwasher. Simply put the cloth on the side along with your dishes and run the machine as normal with a bit of dish soap. As with the microwave, the high heat will help to kill off the bacteria.

5. Swedish Dishcloths are Very Durable

Our Swedish dishcloths can be machine washed up to 50 times (as opposed to regular dishcloths, which should be replaced every two weeks). The fabric is very resilient and will not wear down prematurely—even with rigorous use. While it depends on how often you use them, each cloth generally has a lifespan of a few months (a set of ten can easily last you an entire year).

6. Cellulose Cloths are Incredibly Absorbent

Our dishcloths are capable of absorbing up to 20x their weight in water! This makes them perfect for wiping up spills. As soon as you wet the material with water, it will soften up considerably. Of course, you can use it dry as well.

Why Our Wholesale Swedish Dishcloths are Great for Printing

Our dishcloths are wonderful for printing. Why? Unlike other fabrics such as polyester (a fiber that is notoriously hard to dye), our cotton and cellulose blend naturally hold onto the colors. Of course, there are several other reasons as well. Let’s take a look at some of them below.

We offer bulk wholesale pricing for our white Swedish dishcloths, which we sell in packs of 500

The most popular wholesale dishcloth color for printing on is white, and the only color we currently stock in bulk packs of 500. Additionally, our Swedish dishcloths are available in six different colors in packs of 10—green, blue, yellow, red, lime green, and grey. Depending on what you plan on printing, you can either pick a vibrant or a neutral shade. For instance, you can choose our white dishcloths if you have an intricate design with more than one colors; this will allow it to show better. 

You Can Print on the Entire Dishcloth

Our five-star rated dishcloths are 8″ by 7″ in size. Want to print something that will take up the entire space? No problem. As a matter of fact, that’ll probably be better as it will be more eye-catching. By utilizing the whole cloth, you’re bound to grab your customers’ attention.

Benefits of Promoting with Branded Cellulose Dishcloths

Printing on dishcloths is a great way to promote your business. For instance, you can print your company’s logo and contact information on cloths for clients. If you own a store or a restaurant, you can also use them as means of ongoing advertisement.

Your Print Will be Visible For a Long Time

We mentioned this earlier, but cellulose dishcloths are durable; this means that the prints will be visible for a long time. To give you a better idea, they can easily be used for up to several months before wearing out. You can see how this is ideal for advertising—at the end of the day, you want your print to be visible for as long as possible after all. The same goes for if you plan on using it as a gift!

You Will be Supporting an Eco-Friendly Cause

Swedish dishcloths are 100% biodegradable. By printing on these fabrics, you will be supporting an eco-friendly cause. Not only are the materials themselves all-natural, but CO2 emissions are also minimized during their production. All in all, it will help to decrease our carbon footprint. Of course, it will also reflect nicely on your brand.

Other Reasons Why You Might Want to Print on Sponge Cloths

Printing on sponge cloths can be an effective way of promoting your brand, however, that’s not all that they’re good for. For example, you can print on them for various occasions and events.


Customized cellulose dishcloths can be great gifts for weddings. For instance, you can customize a set with the bride and groom’s names as a present. Alternatively, if you’re the one who’s getting married, you can print a creative design, which can then be used as wedding favors.

Promotional Giveaways

Dishcloths can also be used for promotional giveaways. Whether it’s for a business or a social media campaign, they can be a great way to bring attention to your brand. Not to mention that they’re practical!

Personal Gifts

Customized dishcloths make fantastic gifts as well—even more so if you’re able to design your own pattern. For instance, they can be great for Christmas, birthdays, birthday showers, and housewarming parties.

How Does Printing on Cellulose Swedish Dishcloths Work?

As mentioned earlier, Swedish dishcloths retain dyes well; this makes the entire printing process a lot easier. For one thing, you won’t have to worry about the ink coming off of the fabric (something that often happens with synthetic materials).

In general, water-based inks are recommended. Not only are they inexpensive, but they are all-natural and vegan friendly. If it is your first time printing on Swedish dishcloths, you might want to limit yourself to two colors (things might a little more complicated with more colors).

Using a Printing Press

A printing press is a good investment if you plan on printing in bulk. Convenient and easy to use, it will allow you to print a considerable amount of dishcloths in a small amount of time (e.g. >1000 a day).

Using Stencils

Stencils are a great option if you plan on just printing a few dishcloths. After putting together your design, create the shape using a thick piece of paper. Carefully cut it out and place it on your cloth. From there, carefully apply the ink or paint using a soft brush or sponge. Do not apply too much otherwise it will seep it under the paper. When you’re done, pull away the paper and let it dry.
