  • Natural agave fiber washcloth

  • Handwoven in Mexico

  • Exfoliates skin

The Ayate Washcloth from Flower Valley is made from 100% natural agave fiber. This hand-woven washcloth for beautiful skin is an excellent exfoliator. It restores and stimulates skin to leave it feeling invigorated and fresh. Long lasting and quick drying, Ayate is better than a loofa and resists mold. When soaked in water, its natural fibers expand and the weave tightens like magic. The native term "ayate" describes loose-woven products. It's tradition reaches back over 10,000 years in the Mesoamerican culture. The Ayate Washcloth is also useful in the kitchen as an efficient, mar-free utility cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Really smoothes your skin. I try to buy one each time I place an order to use for gifts. The recipients soon become fans as well! April 9, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed I bought this expecting to use it in the shower. On first use, it shrank to about 5" x 7" so it's hard to hold on to. No matter, it doesn't really have the scrubbing power I need anyway. Tried it in the kitchen so it wouldn't go to waste, but it's not as good as the crocheted netting scrubber I already had. Unless I can think of something else to use it for, I've wasted my money. :-( July 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by BETTER THAN BODY SCRUBS I love this wash cloth. It works better than body scrubs to soften and exfoliate. I will not buy another expensive body scrub. I even use it gently on my face and have gotten lots of compliments on my complexion from my husband. Both my daughters love it too. February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Purchase I like this cloth for showering but I only use it on the bottoms of my feet--it feels so good. December 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks like twine at first You can wrap around a bar when out of the box. After moistening i was unsure what state the cloth was in. Turns out it shrinks which is almost a good enough selling point gimmick. Nice abrasion qualities without doing damage. will be interesting to note wear characteristics. December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coming back for more! I purchased one of these "cloths" about 6 months ago and fell in love with it. I feel clean, soft and exfoliated after using this. Forget those pricey scrubs, I'll never use them again when this works so much better! The cloth itself rinses clean and fresh, never any mildew nor smell and is still like new. I'm going to purchase more for myself and gifts. Thanks Swanson for bringing me great products at a great price. July 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT After trying this for the first time, I absolutely loved it. Every time I use it I like it even more. What attracted me to it is the naturalness of it. I don't know how long it is supposed to last and haven't had it long enough to comment on that, but I can say that it is very exhilarating and refreshing. If you do not like roughness on your skin you probably will not like it, but my skin tingles when I'm finished showering, making me feel very clean and good. I don't ever want to go back to shower puffs. I have already bought two more to stock up so I don't run out. Not sure if I can give them as gifts as some people only like soft materials touching their skin. This does not scrape at all, but it isn't soft either. For me, it is perfect. When finished, I rinse it well, stretch it out, fold it in half, and hang over the shower faucet to dry. It retains no odors and looks just as good as when I bought it. I recommend it. May 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product Have bought 6 of these already to give as gifts, I have been using the same one for months now. Works wonderfully just lather up and wash. When I purchased this I also got Nubia Raw shea butter soap with soy milk frankincese & myrrh and I love the way it lathers with the washcloth. I would recommed this to a friend and everyone I have gifted these to also loves them. January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This cloth feels wonderful! It scrubs great without being too rough. I ordered just one...for myself, because no one else in my family wanted one...they said they were fine with the other cloths and the brushes. Well, as soon as it arrived, my sweet daughter could not resist...she tried it out before I had a chance to, and she loved it. I let her keep it and I ordered another one for me. I have the feeling I will be ordering some more too. December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ayate Cloths I love these cloths! I make and sell lotions, soaps, etc. and do up gift bags. I always include one of these cloths with my Lotion and Soap bag. November 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by exfoliating I love washing with this, I feel so clean after. October 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ayate Washcloth This is a wonderful way to remove dead skin cells and lotions from my body during my showers. It leaves me feeling freshened, softer. September 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best I love the Ayate washcloth. I have been purchasing these in bulk for 2 years from another website. I use them in my massage business and gift them to my clients. I have clients coming back for more for their family members. This website offers the cloth for half the price of the other website and I think I have switched to Swansons for good! The lower price makes it possible for me to sell the product for much less to my clients that want additional cloths. The cloth is so soft when wet yet provides great exfoliation in a gentle fashion. The cloth is wonderful for scrubbing your feet and continuing up the leg for a great lymphatic effect. You feel so good when you shower with the Ayate washcloth coupled with Dr Bronner's peppermint castile soap. The best of both worlds, soft yet great exfoliation. They last forever. I am still using the one I purchased 2 years ago. August 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems good for gently scrubbing This is based on one week usage so I cant comment on the product molding or mildew. As the package says, the fibers shrink after first use which was good because it brought the original size from a small hand towel down to approximate 8 x 8 inch cloth. I am a runner, and after doing so,(not sure how to describe it) I feel like my skin emits toxins which leave my skin uneven and in need of a gentle scrub. This product does a good job. Sure I could use the nylon shower balls to do the same thing, but I am trying to remove artificial products as much as possible. I did have a little loofah facial scrub, which ended up with black imbedded in it (assuming mold here). Will now see if this product lives up to its reputation of "no mold" August 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than loofah My skin feels so soft after using with my shower gels and soaps. I find this cloth beneficial as a facial exfoliant - not too harsh when wet. I would suggest hanging someplace outside of the shower/bath as my first one got a little mildew-y. Other than that, have purchased repeatedly since I love it. Lasts me around 2-3 months with proper care. August 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Product Every time I use this cloth, I notice the before and after effects every time I get in an out the shower. The first time I used it, it was a bit rougher, but it softened up a lot afterwards and every time I get out of the shower, it leaves the biggest dirt ring in the tub, no matter if I was out exercising or just loafing around the house, so that's another reason I know it works. I may buy another one for my face. I'm extremely satisfied with it! August 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best for less I just can't bring myself to use other washcloths. August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by AYATE CLOTH IS THE HANDS DOWN BEST SCRUBBER This is the best bath scrubber I have ever used. I have been using these ayate clothes for many years and I would not even consider changing to anything else. Ayate clothes are gentle enough to use on your face and scrubby enough to exfoliate well. I have used sponges, natural or artificial and they are too harsh for my skin. Have also used bath "flowers" which are made of artificial plastic of some kind. I would never use those bath flowers again. They are too harsh for my face and don't feel good on my skin. Ayate clothes are the best scrubber on the market today. December 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washcloth This cloth scrubs my skin well, and makes it so I use less of my soaps and other products. My skin feels soft and fresh after I wash. It certainly exfoliates, but it's not too rough. Plus, the price is right! November 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! I have used Lufa products to exfoliate. This is much better than a lufa! I love it and I recommend it to all my friends. August 14, 2012
