My favourite cleaning companion is my Sponge Cloth. Christen (founder of Ten and Co) and I came up with a collaborative print which I love and it makes cleaning a bit more fun!


They are way more absorbent than a paper towel, sucking up about ¾ of a cup of liquid; perfect for spills.

Be sure to check out the Don't Be Trashy sponge cloth too!

The best part? They're long lasting and compostable!

To go with your ZWC Swedish Sponge Cloth is the matching ZWC x Ten and Co tea towel, designed in Canada, and screen printed in Sweden with water-based dyes!

These gorgeous tea towels are a mid-weight 50/50 cotton-linen blend. This blend allows the towel to soften over time naturally while maintaining durability and absorbency.


And they match with the ZWC x Ten and Co Swedish Sponge Cloth perfectly!
