If you’re looking for a little luxury in the bathroom, you’ll love my favorite face cloths and storage solution. It’s inexpensive but feels a little bit special and luxurious. I buy a couple packages of these wash cloths at Target (they’re under $3 for 6 washcloths). I find them on an end cap, usually by the college stuff. You could use a color or find them at another store – the distinguishing feature is that they don’t have any trim on them – they’re just sewn around the edges and they are very thin.


Then I put them in a small wire basket and keep it on the counter by the sink. Every night I use a cloth to take my makeup off and wash my face. Not only do they dry quickly but they wash up beautifully. No more makeup on your ‘good’ wash cloths. I wash them on hot right along with our other white bath towels with Laundry Detergent Spray and Oxygen Whitener.

How do I keep the makeup from staining the white wash cloths?

I rinse them thoroughly after I use them and this takes care of most of the makeup. I also find that by washing them on warm/hot and with Oxygen Whitener gets the rest out.

How do I deal with the wet face cloths?

I use one face cloth at night and I let it hang over our tub faucet until it’s dry and then I just toss it in the towel basket.

How long do they last?

I use them for a couple years – I’ve purchased three times and only repurchase when the cloths are dingy and need to be replaced. They make good rags if you want to upcycle them for another use!
