I am not Cheesecloth!!! Rymplecloth is a highly absorbent and durable 100% cotton cloth that is the real workhorse of utilitarian fabric with virtually no shedding. The wrinkled and crimpled texture traps dust and dirt particles but the soft finish will not scratch fine surfaces. Rymplecloth also features purified fibers that will not leave a potentially damaging residue on metal, wood or glass surfaces. It offers a hint of stretch that allows it to maintain its shape and is environmentally friendly in that it is reusable and biodegradable. Use this durable cloth to polish and dust your painted or antique furniture with rymplecloth and eliminate any worry about damaging the finish. Wonderful for that final hand buffing finish.
