Keep them available so that they are easy to grab quickly.
The cloths are two layers of unbleached organic 100% cotton birdseye fabric sewn together with a center seam. Birdseye fabric has little "birds" woven into the fabric. This is much smoother than terry fabric. Birdseye has a nice amount of "grippiness" to get stuff off with a balance of being smooth enough for softness. Two layers gives you the right level of thickness for absorbency, plus two layers of fabric helps them stay flatter. It gives them enough thickness so that it is easy to grab one. Single layer look-alikes curl up, stick together and are more difficult to handle. Having two layers of fabric makes them much better and easier to use. Paper towels can't compare to two layers of birdseye cotton. Simple, yet so effective.
They can also be used as preemie diapers or layered as newborn cotton diapers. We added a small seam across the wipe to help them keep their shape, yet cotton shrinkage will vary a bit of course. Like all unbleached cotton, wash several times in a regular size load of laundry, perhaps through 5-8 cycles or more, it varies, on hot with detergent before using. This prep washing is needed to wash off the natural cotton oils present in unbleached cotton. It needs to be washed off before the full absorbency of the cotton is reached.
Made of organic 100% cotton. Made in Pakistan.

Single packs: Cloth-eez Paper Towel Alternative
I bought two sets of the paper towel alternative kits. When covid-19 had us (9 of us!) washing our hands non stop for the past few months, we were going through our hand/dish towels so quickly it wasn’t effective for our wash routine. We were getting one person per hand/dish towel that used to last til the end of the day for a large family but needed to move to a one time use and send them to the wash to avoid cross contamination for those family members that had no choice to be out and about. I prepped the paper towel alternatives all at once and put them in immediate rotation! The entire family took right to them to dry hands after washing. It was an easy transition having come from larger hand/dish towels and also having upcycled GMD pre folds (Used for years and years past diaper days) in the mix for Hand washing routines. Being half the size of a dish towel our laundry loads are no bigger then they have been and they are quick, absorbent and so very soft. The prefold premmies I had been using were not quick large enough and took a little longer to dry. The square flat birdseye were too big and bulky to be as useful or convenient as we needed for a hand washing station. Both of those items are perfect for other duties although. The paper towel alternatives are already an invaluable addition to our family cloth life. Highly recommend
These are wonderful. I bought the set as a gift for my husband, who likes to find ways to be more eco-friendly. I used Green Mountain Diapers for my daughter, so I knew the quality of these would be just as great. They work wonderfully. Super absorbent and a perfect size. I keep a wire basket full of them on my kitchen counter and use them for everything. Having a toddler, I definitely have a lot to clean up and these work!
