If you find yourself constantly wiping down your kitchen countertops, you’re not alone! Sometimes I run through nearly half a roll of paper towels a day in an attempt to get a streak-free, clean kitchen countertop. This approach is not only highly unsustainable, it can also weigh on my wallet. The cost of paper towels really does add up over time.

I recently turned to Full Circle for a solution to my paper towel consumption. Their soap dispenser solved my dish soap dilemma, and editors here at Kitchn have also fallen head over heels for their stylish, useful, and durable solutions to common kitchen cleaning qualms (think: the only cast iron dish brush you’ll ever need, finally sponges that don’t get gross, and cute compost collectors). So, if any sustainable kitchen cleaning product retailer had an answer to my problem, I knew it would be Full Circle. Once again, they did not disappoint. The Good Sheet is exactly the countertop cleaning solution I had been searching for. 

These cute reusable dishcloths come in a set of three for $10 and can hold up to 20 times their weight in liquid. This means that they work as a sponge to wipe off layers of sticky grime, and then once wrung out, they also double as a paper towel to finish wiping down surfaces. Made from cotton cellulose, the Good Sheet is completely plant-based and biodegradable. By using this smart solution time and time again, I can confidently say that I am saving loads of trees (talk about a win-win)!

Since they’re reusable, wringing out these towels sometimes isn’t quite enough to eliminate stains from heavier pasta sauce, wine spills, or caramel. So after using the sheets a few times, I simply toss them in the dishwasher or pop them in the microwave to disinfect. Then they can hop straight back into counter-cleaning duty or be quickly dried and stowed away for next time.

Besides their cleaning versatility, sustainable nature, and good looks, these dishcloths are also inexpensive. Ten dollars for a set of three is a ridiculously good deal, saving future-you hundred of dollars in paper towels. I only wish I had found them sooner!
