It's a cloth that some people use to clean their dishes. It's sometimes the same size or smaller than a wash cloth (facial), but is generally not as thick as a wash cloth.

Some people use a sponge to clean dishes, some people use a dish cloth. And there are others who use .... THE DISH WASHING MACHINE.!! :rofling:
true
I've never seen anyone do dishes with just a thin cloth but I'm sure it will work just as well. Down here we either use a sponge or a brush and ofcourse there are always lucky people who actually have a dishwasher machine!! I never cared for one because I never knew what I was missing but there's one at my boyfriends and boy it is handy!!

Oh I love that handy machine! And the Cascade for those machines always smell SOOOOoooooo gooood!! I seriously stand there for a couple minutes just smelling the stuff!! MMmmm... Anyhoooo ... I prefer a dish cloth (I've also heard it referred to as a "dish rag" by some people) or a brush. I like the cloth because you can run it through the machine with the laundry to keep it fresh. I think sponges are a bid high maintenance in the keeping fresh-department, no matter how many times I soak/bleach/squish.

You know, that's funny! My parents-in-law are from Holland originally, and she has this absolute fettish about buying us dish washing brushes. Something I had never heard of before I met dh's family. I was used to washing dishes with a cloth growing up (the stuff that didn't fit in the dishwasher, that is! ) but now I am a dish brush convert!

Quick update on my curled edges. They are no longer curled. I accidently washed and dried the darn thing twice-- and like magic--no more curled edges. I had washed and blocked it earlier and it had curled edges. Maybe it was the heat from the dryer did it. I don't know. But HOORAY no curled edges now

Hey, Kelly! I'd love to submit a photo of the "magic dishcloth" but I don't have a digital camera yet :crying: Maybe someday
