Compostable Sponge Cloths

These compostable cloths are perfect for the conventional sponge lover. They can be washed between uses and at the end of their life be thrown into the compost bin. To dress it up a little I recommend wrapping a cloth around a bottle of wine with some twine; looks nice and it’s affordable!
