For you to appreciate to the fullest your new 100% Linen Dishcloth, you will have to wash them a couple times to soften the fibers. It will become even more absorbent as it gets older and softer. Ideally, wash in cold or lukewarm water without fabric softener (which could block the fibers from absorbing and creates "greasy streaks" on dishes in the long run) and do not put in the dryer.
Due to several factors such as lighting, equipment used to shop our store, personal perception, etc, the colors may vary slightly between what you see on this listing and atual dishcloths you have received. Please note we do our best to make sure the colors are as representative of the reality as possible. Rest assured, if several cloths are ordered with the same color, they will all be of the same color, the variation may happen between the color you see on your screen and the color you receive.
