Waffle Weave Cloth
Our MOST POPULAR cloth. These ultra-absorbent microfiber cleaning cloths are soft and grooved to the touch, perfect for drying dishes (and your hands). Oh, and for the ladies out there, they also make great hair turbans! We’ve made them extra large so they can work overtime for you.

I use these more as towels, rather than cleaning cloths.
They're fantastic as dish towels, and although I was worried that they might be a bit too cumbersome due to the large size, it didn't take long to realize the size is actually a GREAT convenience! They're also super absorbent, not linty at all, and they don't take long to dry when they're hung over the oven door handle. Grey wouldn’t normally be my first choice in colours, but it does looks quite nice with my stainless-steel appliances.
As soon as I started using these to dry the dishes, I realized another VERY useful application which motivated my purchase of a second set of these waffle weave cloths (blue, this time, to distinguish between the different uses):
We have an acrylic surround shower which was built with a generous amount of integrated shelving, bars, and other moulded features. Functional, yes … but also very awkward to squeegee down the walls (to prevent mold/mildew). In the past, we’ve used really plush microfibre towels to dry the walls after showering, like the kind you would use to chamois down your car. These dried the shower walls very quickly and easily, but it took FOREVER for the chamois towel to dry, and often wasn’t dry enough in time for the next person in the family to use. Instead, these waffle weave cloths are big and absorbent enough to dry down the whole shower, and they’re still a light enough fabric that they dry MUCH faster.
I’m very grossed out by the skunky towel odour I’ve encountered in other towels in the past but am happy to report no problems with these! Even with my diligent towel maintenance routines, the actual towel composition/content has a lot to do with this.
[MY DILIGENT TOWEL MAINTENANCE: Hanging: Ensure that towels are always hung up; kids and spouses who leave towels in a heap on the floor will be strung up by their toes; towel bar/hook placement matters – install somewhere we you’ll get good air circulation; hooks on the back of bathroom doors don’t normally allow enough air to circulate when the door is open and resting against the wall … Laundering: I wait until I have a load-worth of similar towels; besides these, we also use the Maker’s bath towels and hand towels. I wash them in cold water with just the tiniest bit (a tablespoon or less) of a very ‘clean’ (minimal phosphates/filler) HE detergent and about half a cup of white vinegar in the ‘rinse’ compartment. I dry them on a timed cycle for about an hour on the very lowest heat setting (which might actually be NO heat?)].
I bought my first set at least 18 months ago. Still look great after daily use and lots of washing. Size is great for all jobs. They dry really quickly and don’ t get smelly. I gifted them to several friends and bought more for the cottage.
Great cloths!! And great service from your company. Thank you!
