I have been using one dish cloth for over a month now and I am very happy with it. It cleans really well, and I used it not just for regular dishes (plates, pots, pans, etc.) , but for cleaning the stove and everything that needs cleaning and scrubbing. It does a better job than the sponge, and I didn't need to use any of the powders that I usually use to give my stainless steel pots the shine. I have read other reviews where people encountered a foul odor that didn't go away and other problems, and I admit I have not had any. It is true that this cloth cannot be used to absorb water spills, but I understood before ordering it that that was the case, so I did not expect such a task from this cloth. It also does an excellent job at cleaning my cast iron pans. I will definitely order more in the future, considering that normally I go through one sponge per week, and using the cloth definitely saves me money.
