If you like dishcloths instead of sponges, these are my favorites. The ribbed fabric picks up and traps all the crumbs, etc., and rinses out clean and easily, especially if the water runs the length of the ribbing. They wash beautifully and come if all kinds of colors to match your decor
I bought some similar at Walmart, they were called bar towels.i used them to wash dishes and they are thick,and last a long time. I can't find them anymore where I live( in the middle of nowhere) I was happy to see these when I found them online. Will probably order more!
I did all the research, and I choose Turkish cotton for softness, absorbency and durability, I want black to hide stains and to go with my decor. I got the matching kitchen towels for the same reasons.
