I've seen one too many sponge-bacteria studies to continue using a sponge in my kitchen; I recently swore off the germ magnets for good. Up to 45 billion microbes per square centimeter? Um, no thanks. Replace sponges weekly? Too pricey and wasteful.

So it was a true thrill to find a primo deal on a washable, reusable alternative — Swedish Dishcloths. Not sure where I've been (in a cave?), but apparently the Amazon universe is all abuzz about these things. Swedish Dishcloths are a consistent top seller with more than 30,000 five-star reviews! That's a lot of love for a dishcloth.

All nine color options are on sale, but right now Yahoo shoppers can score an even deeper discount on the sunny yellow 10-pack. With the exclusive code 07YAHOODISH, they're down from $25 to just $14 for Yahoo shoppers. That's 44 percent off!

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Made of cotton and cellulose, these washable cloths will last up to 150 washes. When they finally wear out, you can rest easy knowing they'll biodegrade. Impressive for a buck-forty a cloth!

Throngs of reviewers say they are incredibly effective. One happy shopper reports: "You can really scrub with them, but they never feel yucky like a sponge does.... I've used the same two for a month now and they still look great, when they go downhill I can compost them."

Another added: "They are VERY absorbent, yet easy to wring out completely (and I mean completely!) after use...And as advertised, they don't stink!"

But don't stop at the kitchen. You can eschew the sponge and the paper towel too. These are "great for all kinds of cleaning," writes a five-star fan. "They are even more versatile than I expected. When damp, they're perfect for wiping up all kinds of spills, and leave surfaces almost completely dry...I'm planning to try them on my annual spring project — washing winter fireplace residue off my walls. If they last as long as advertised, I won't have to replace them for many months!
