Looking for an eco-friendly kitchen staple?

How many paper towels do you go through on average? Are you in need of coasters? Do you need another sponge? This probably sounds super random, but all these things can be done with the help of some Swedish towels! This week’s Happy Friday reader Tracey is sharing how these simple Swedish towels have made a massive impact around her condo!

Swedish cloths and hand soap

I am a big fan of Swedish dishcloths thanks to past Hip2Save posts. They’re affordable and super useful around the house. I have quite a few and needed a way to corral them all. (Small condo=few drawers/cabinets.) All it took was an inexpensive napkin holder from Walmart to keep them handy!

I use them daily to place under mugs so I don’t accidentally chip them on my granite countertops. I also cut one in half to place under the soaps by my sink to absorb drips. When one needs to be washed, I just switch it out with the other half.

Whenever I see H2S posts showing them on sale, I always order a pack or two as they make great gifts. Be sure to see past posts for more useful tips if you haven’t tried them yet!
