Desert Landscape Cotton Dishrags


I just moved to my new home in the desert and I am adjusting to the new climate.  It is wonderful to have weather warm enough to sit and work at my table outside at the end of October.  I have been spending my time unpacking and decorating my new living space.  I want it to be a space that is warm, inviting and eco friendly.

My kitchen is the first room to be put together.  It is the center of any home and it is where we spend a lot of time.  I like to make my meals from scratch so I end up having a lot of dishes to wash.  I don’t like using sponges because we use them over and over but don’t have a way to wash and disinfect them.  With Covid being germ free is of the utmost importance.  I also do not like a lot of clutter and prefer my counters to have lots of usable space.

The solution I had was to make my own dish cloths out of 100% cotton yarn.  I used yarn in colors of my new surroundings to brighten my kitchen.  They are plain and simple but brighten up the kitchen and I can throw them in the washer and dryer and reuse them for quite some time.


I have made more sets available on my Etsy shop at .Each set contains 4 dishcloths in bright desert colors and are made from 100% cotton yarn.  I hope to offer other sets in different color variations in the future.  If you are concerned with being germ free during the pandemic, consider changing from sponges to our eco friendly dishcloths from Wendy B’s Studio.
