Did you know that kitchen sponges are a petri dish for bacteria growth? From Day 1, the sponge provides a conducive reservoir for active bacteria. In fact, kitchen sponges could be dirtier than toilet and even sanitizing them doesn’t reduce bacteria. Tired of looking at stained and beat-up sponges? BamRags is your answer!
BamRags are super absorbent, durable and eco-friendly dishcloths that are an effective alternative to sponge & paper towels. BamRags is the ultimate dishcloth for your kitchen!
Sponges are a breeding ground for bacteria, rapidly turning dirty, smelly and crumbly.
It is best to replace sponges every week and that adds up quickly. It’s a lot of waste, especially given that so many sponges are made from plastics, making them yet another item in our home that is damaging to our planet.
Made with a unique combination of bamboo yarn and mini waffle-weave, BamRag is remarkably durable, absorbent, fast-drying, versatile, tear and abrasion resistant and reusable over and over again. BamRags are an environmentally friendly, affordable and sanitary alternative to sponges and more.
1) More absorbent than any alternatives
Bamboo absorbs 7x more liquid than a single paper towel and it is easy to squeeze out the liquid after cleaning up spills, just like a sponge. Bamboo yarn is also 3x more absorbent compared to cotton. In addition, waffle weave provides a large surface area with its honeycomb structure, offering an innovative design to trap moisture and absorb water more quickly.
2) A natural scrubber to get rid of grime on any surface
The puffy, honeycombed surface provides crevices and acts as a natural scrubber to clean up dishes, kitchen surfaces, table tops, home appliances and more. It also offers steady grip while cleaning slippery items like glass wear streak-free.
3) Bamboo waffle is self cleaning
The dirt and grime wash off easily and do not stick to the bamboo waffle fiber. It does not retain dirt like the sponges, staying fresh for longer!
4) More durable than any alternatives
Bamboo yarns offer significantly higher strength compared to cotton yarn. The tight waffle weave also supports the integrity of the fabric, adding to its strength and durability. Unlike a sponge, BamRags won’t crumble or pill. These will last you for a long time!
5) Fast drying - odor resistant
The waffle weave provides an effective airflow meaning they can dry 4X faster than regular dishcloth and stay fresher for longer. This also prevents the BamRags from harboring unpleasant odors. And, cleaning BamRags is super easy - they can be washed in the washing machine or in the top rack of the dishwasher. Alternatively, they can also be boiled or microwaved (when damp) for one minute. Hang over the faucet or lay flat to air dry.
6) Eco-friendly alternative to reduce waste
The convenience of sponges and paper towels comes with a heavy price. Sponges are made of plastic and will have to be replaced frequently. They are not biodegradable and will end of in landfills for generations. They also retain dirt and release microplastics that fall off on almost every wash, washing straight down our drains into our water systems. These microplastics then stay in the ocean forever, either being digested by marine life or making its way onto corals or the sea floor.
110 million trees and 130 billion gallons of water are used to make paper towels every year. Imagine the deforestation and water contamination that results from this wasteful consumption. And, after a single-use, it all goes to the landfill - 3,000 tons every day – where it generates methane as it decomposes.
We only have one planet to protect and every small action will add up to make a big impact!
BamRags are made of bamboo, an eco-friendly and sustainable crop that is naturally organic. It is self-generating and requires little water, no pesticides and no irrigation compared to cotton. It typically grows well in poor soil that is unusable for other crops, and it is often planted to restore degraded soils. It also absorbs way more greenhouse gases than other hardwood trees.
Each BamRag can replace up to 10 sponges and 15 rolls of paper towels, saving our planet and your purse. Just think of all those sponges and paper towels you're no longer sending to a landfill. Think of all the trees that will no longer be cut down and water that will no longer be contaminated to produce these sponges and paper towels. BamRags would be the only dishcloth that you will ever need for your kitchen and your home!
