Here’s a riddle for you: What starts out as big as a coin, expands to the size of a washcloth, and can make your whole house sparkle?

If you guessed Gertrude’s Green Ec’o Towel, you’ve cleaned up — literally.

These towels are the creation of entrepreneur Gertrude Skinta (pictured on right), who wanted a portable, environmentally-friendly alternative to paper towels, tissues, and disposable wipes that litter our landfills. When moistened with water, her dime-sized tablets expand to the size of a typical washcloth (sort of like those expanding bath sponges for kids).

In your home, the Ec’o Towel works great on spills, sticky fingers, or smudged glass. Everywhere else, the lightweight towels make cleanup convenient. Just throw the tablets in your backpacks, golf bags, lunch boxes, glove compartments, purses, and diaper bags and they’ll be there when you need them.

They’re hypoallergenic, so don’t be afraid to use them as facial wipes, too. Plus, they can be rinsed and reused for greater eco-savings. As Gertrude says of her towels, “They’re Ec’ological.”
