Where to buy fabric kitchen rolls?

Paper kitchen rolls collapse when used with water, and all the clothes I've seen in shops are not that cheap to use them once. But using twice or more they start to make unpleasant odor probably not noticeable by most persons but definitely annoying me. There used to be a product called Plenty Dura Cloth, 5 pounds for a 72-tissue nonwoven fabric roll, but it looks like discontinued. Have you seen any replacement?

Try bamboo kitchen roll. Each sheet lasts 0ver 50 washes and I've never found it smelly.

Thanks John, I will probably try. But I really prefer one-use ones. Do you know any non-paper kitchen roll less for than 10p per sheet?

Actually I'm looking for polyether or viscose kitchen rolls.

Jantex pack of 50 for £3.60

Why not get an empty ice cream tub that you can chuck reusable clothes in that you have used, seal the lid to seal the smell in. When you have enough, wash them. Cheaper and better for the environment. You could add some lemon juice/essential oil to combat the smell when opening the lid to add another cloth.

Ordinary j cloths stand up to being machine washed several times before they disintegrate. Might be a more cost effective alternative.

I got one in Asda. It was a blue roll. Can't remember the price but I have a feeling it was in the £1 section.

What about antibacterial wipes? Cheap and clean up pretty much all spills etc

minky all purpose there are loads of options available, none are environmentally friendly.

Thanks for the idea! Antibacterial ones are already wet, so they cannot cope with food/milk/water splilt. Actually the material I'm looking for is quite like the antibacterial tissues base, but without any water/soap/spirits/etc in it. Just dry clean non-woven cloth, preferably able to absorb a bit more water.

Wow, thanks Pestilence13610! The price for Minky is quite low. It looks like they can absorb water a bit worse than Plenty Dura Cloth but it is definitely an option!

User I don't approve.
I do a fair amount of cooking, catering and have about 50 slightly stained tea-towels and a love of original j-cloths (for their washability).
However, I can cope with us all being a bit different.

Have you tried costco own brand kitchen roll. It doesn't rip or shred when wet. I recently ran out and used plenty, I will never run out again it was like cleaning up with loo roll!
