Acrylic yarn has very fine fibers similar to microfiber, and absorb water, so they wash dishes well even without detergent. (Only when I need to wash really oily dishes do I use a small amount of detergent. Also, I heard that adding some baking soda and/or vinegar works well, too.)
Because you do not have to use detergent, it is gentle on your skin and on our earth - and it also lasts for a long time. I’ve had the same one for 3 years! You can wash it in a washing machine or a dishwasher, and you can dry it in the dryer. It is also scratch-free, so you can use it for many purposes, such as washing a bathtub and a car.
