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!

These cloths are soft enough for any surface, but durable enough for stainless steel, cooktops and dishes.

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