One Washcloth hopes to encourage the sharing of a washcloth at the bedside following a death, with as many families as possible. Individuals and organizations may wish to purchase washcloth gift sets directly from One Washcloth, or source washcloths locally, themselves. Gift tags are available, which gently explain the purpose of the washcloth, and can be attached to any washcloth that is given.
Using environmentally friendly and organic fabrics, One Washcloth gift sets cost approximately $15 to produce. Please consider donating this amount for each One Washcloth gift bag and cloth set that you request.
We will gratefully accept donations to allow us to supply One Washcloth gift sets and gift tags to families and organizations that cannot afford to cover costs. We welcome you to make these generous donations in memory of a loved one or friend (memorial cards available; unfortunately we cannot offer charitable tax receipts at this time).
Made of organic bamboo loop terry on one side and organic hemp fleece on the other creating extra softness. The washcloths are white/ivory and are hand made in Ohio.
Washcloths are not sold separately. They are part of the "gift set".
Washcloths measure 9x9 inches
Each washcloth is tucked inside a waterproof bag handmade in California using Eco-PUL (an environmentally-friendly fabric made in the USA.) The Eco-Pul fabric pattern will vary depending on current stock.
Being waterproof allows for wet/used washcloths to be taken home easily without getting other belongings wet.
Bags are not sold separately. They are part of the "gift set".
The bag measures 7x5 inches
An instructional gift tag is attached to each bag and reads:
"This cloth is a gift. Please use it to care for your loved one who has died, as a final act of love. You may use it to gently wash the face, hands, and body of your loved one, as you would have in life. Follow your instincts. There is no "right" way. There is no rush. You may keep this cloth as a reminder of the tender care you gave at the end."
The gift tags are folded in half and are the size of a business card.
Gift cards can be purchased separately to be attached to your own washcloths.
