best dishwashing cloth

Please give me your recommendations on the best dish washing cloth you prefer.
I am getting away from the germ infested sponges and want to move to cloths that I can throw in the washing machine.
Thanks!

I LOVE the microfiber cloths you get in the automotive section at WM.
I use them for dishcloths, face cloths, dusting, scrubbing anything.
They are so soft and absorbent. Crumbs are never left on the counter. They are easy to rinse.
It's been a while since I bought them, but I think you get 8 for $5. The ones at our WM are packaged in blue and white ones. Single colors packaged together. Some WM's have different colors than the blue and white.
They last a long time. I haven't worn any out yet.

I got some bamboo cloths for a gift and love them. They dry really quick, moreso than terrycloth. Also got the dish towels. They're a 60% bamboo/40% cotton blend. I'll be looking for more of these. I've been using the microfiber ones but love these even more because they dry so quickly.

I got some microfiber dish cloths at Walmart. They come four to a pack, are about $5 and have a fabric scrubbie back. The colors are green, blue and tan. I got all three colors so I can use one or two a day and wash them, they are wonderful and last a long time. lm

I've discovered "bar clothes". They're a bit larger than a regular dishcloth, very absorbent and hold their shape. I found them at BB&B in the same section as dishclothes and towels. Come five to a package (yellow, white, green, blue and maroon). Don't remember the price.

I have a dishwasher, so I don't really need a cloth for that. But for counters and tables I use Clorox wipes. Psychologically they just seem cleaner to me.

 We've found a BETTER replacement for the popular but hard-to-get Sangamon Mills Sunflower Dishcloths!  I've tried them out in my own home and I like them better.  To date, we've sold thousands of these dishcloths in the store and online. 

What's more, these new dishcloths come in brighter colors (usually red, royal blue, gold, olive gray, yellow, purple and teal) and have been made in the U.S. since 1884.  We do our best to send you an assortment of colors -- not all colors are in stock every day.  If you have a preference for all one color, please indicate in the comments section but it may delay your order if that color is not in stock.  We'll contact you if that is the case.

  • World’s best dish cloth
  • Unique construction for durability and absorbency
  • Use anywhere from kitchen to shop to car
  • Ideal for washing, dusting or cleaning anything

I just bought 40 of these for Christmas.....We had an early Christmas at my Mom and Dad's because they have a home in Florida they go to for the winter....Let me tell you they are the BEST...We have an Amish place to buy the Sagamon Mills Sunflower ones....I looked at them before buying these....These are better than them....just as the lady states here.....These are the only ones I will use from now on..... ( It was pretty funny to see all the girls and ladies screaming a bit about these when they saw them...The men and boys at the Christmas Party were speechless....then saying what the Heck....a dishcloth.....................Ladies we know.......

Velvetlace,

I looked at these on line, I can't tell are they soft and stretchy like a sweater or woven cotton? Are the bulky when wet and hard to wring out? You've peaked my interest.

Ok, I need to look up the ones from Yoder's Market. I used to use Sagamon Mills sunflower cloths and just haven't found anything I like as much. But I haven't been able to buy the sunflower ones for a year or so now. So excited!

I just ordered my first dozen after reading all the raves about them. Can't wait to try them. I've been looking for something like this for years.

Thanks so much for the postings.
