One 12x12 Hemp Washcloth

  • Sale
  • Regular price $9.00

This large hemp/cotton wash cloth is a 12x12 inch square, great to use in the bath or shower. This is also great in the kitchen for drying dishes or cleaning up big messes.

Hemp is a super absorbent, mildew resistant, and durable fiber, perfect for use as a wash cloth. It is made from two layers of soft 55% hemp french terry fabric, sewn together with the scrubby, bumpy side out. The fabric is a natural unbleached color. The wash cloth has been quilted together to keep the two sides from pulling apart. The edges are serged with colored thread, please indicate your desired color upon checkout. See the last two photos for your thread color options.

New hemp/bamboo blend fabric available! Choose if you would like the 55% hemp/45% organic cotton, or 55% hemp/45% bamboo! The bamboo/hemp blend is even softer than the hemp/cotton blend, great to use for sensitive skin.

The BEST PART about these wash cloths is that they are made out of hemp. We could go on forever about how sustainable, absorbent, and long-lasting the hemp fiber is. But the most wonderful thing about hemp for a wash cloth is this: you can leave it in your sink or shower for awhile and it won't get that funky smell. That's because hemp is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It does not attract and collect those yucky microbial friends that make your cotton dishrag and sponge smell disgusting. (Yes, if you want to push your luck and leave it wet all week, it will eventually start getting funky. But it takes a lot longer to reach that point than cotton does.) Hemp is also more absorbent than cotton.

These wash cloths are made from pre-washed fabric, but they will continue to get a little more absorbent each time you wash them, reaching full absorbency after about 6-7 washings. I have been making and using these for years, I love them, and I wanted to share them with you. I think you will agree that they are the best wash cloths you have ever owned.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: Hemp is a durable fiber. You may wash and dry these the same way you do your cotton towels. I do recommend that you use a detergent without chemical fragrances, dyes, or fabric softeners. You should avoid all fabric softeners (including dryer sheets). These will not ruin your wash cloths, but they will coat the fibers and make them less absorbent (and will pollute the air in your home and neighborhood). Bleach will make the fibers break down and wear out, but a little splash of bleach in your washing machine once a month shouldn't hurt. If your towels or wash cloths start to get stained or get a funky smell that won't wash away, try drying them outside on a line (sunshine is great for battling stains and odors). A few drops of tea tree oil in the wash will also help kill any mildew that gets an upper hand in your towels. These are also available in smaller sizes for dish cloths, take a look at my other listings. I am always happy to make some custom sizes for you as well.

All items are sewn and packaged by me in my smoke-free and pet-free home.
