The Bacon Sponges has been flying - we are so grateful for your support! 

A Green City Living original! (As featured on Buzzfeed). We invented and started making The Bacon Sponge in 2014. It is a 100% organic cotton nonpaper towel for draining grease from fried food after cooking. It measures 12" x 11". It is now fully compostable/biodegradable!

YOU ASKED, WE LISTENED! We made the towel 35% bigger @ 14" x 13".

The towel absorbs 10 times it's weight in grease/liquids--anything you choose to use it for. It also absorbs 20 times faster than other fabrics do--and there are no bleaches or dyes to leach into your food.

After use, we recommend that it be soaked in hot water and a degreaser soap like Dawn® for 15-20 minute. ​It can be laundered with other towels after soaking. NOT FOR USE IN THE MICROWAVE.

Bacon sponge

I dad one for years!! Loved it since I don’t buy paper towels anymore. It got lost when I moved so now I have a new one!!!

Bacon Sponge

Gave these as Christmas gifts! They were very well received - everyone loved them. I love the texture/material - seems very absorbent. Thank you!

I like it! this bacon sponge does a great job in soaking up extra grease -- very easy to clean.. just spray some dish soap on it, scrub, rinse, dry. it looks used, but not in a skeevey way! (i also use a non-commercial natural dish soap, and it works great) i like that before i had to use a pile of paper towels and even then the grease soaked through. no more! highly recommend for anyone wanting to save money, landfills, and trash. i purchased one for my daughter and plan to get a few more for friends.
