  Paper Animal RPG Creator Azurexis Talks Accessibility, Wholesome Roguelikes Game Rant speaks to the solo developer of Paper Animal RPG, a Paper Mario and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon-inspired RPG roguelike on Kickstarter.Game Rant spoke to Azurexis, who also goes by Nick, about pioneering the cozier side of the roguelite genre with Paper Animal RPG's casual mode and wholesome vibes.

When you toss a paper towel it can feel like you're just throwing money away. Well, you are — hundreds of dollars even. Reusable cloths are a thriftier and more eco-friendly way to clean up. Case in point: this 10-pack of Swedish Dishcloths. A single cloth can be reused up to 100 times.

Let's crunch some numbers here. Bounty, the most popular paper towel brand in the U.S., according to Statista, costs $27 for 6 double-size rolls on Amazon. And the average American household uses five to seven rolls per month, which averages out to 72 rolls per year. That comes out to about $324 spent on paper towels per year.

Meanwhile, each one of these Swedish Dishcloths is designed to last as long as 15 rolls of paper towels, so by my rough calculations, if you replaced your paper towels with these, you would only go through seven cloths a year— spending $10 total with three cloths to spare. That's a savings of ... over $310! Even if these numbers are a little off, that's still something!

These washable cloths make a great replacement for icky sponges too. They're fast-drying, odor-resistant, and long-lasting. Apparently, the Amazon universe is all abuzz about these things. Swedish Dishcloths are a No. 1 bestseller in two categories with more than 35,300 five-star reviews! That's a lot of love for a dishcloth. And they're available in nine colorways.

Made of cotton and cellulose, these washable cloths can be cleaned again and again in the dishwasher or laundry. When they finally wear out, you can rest easy knowing they'll biodegrade. Impressive for a dollar a cloth!

Many shoppers, like this five-star reviewer, say they're "great for all kinds of cleaning." They continued: "They are even more versatile than I expected. When damp, they're perfect for wiping up all kinds of spills, and leave surfaces almost completely dry."

"You need these," promised an emphatic fan. "AMAZING...They are a workhorse for what they do. Into chemical free/product-free cleaning? I’m telling you, cleaning is what I do. Wet one of these and hit a mirror with just water...Throw them in the dishwasher or washer (I don’t put them in the dryer). And they last. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought these as gifts. I have them stashed everywhere. Bathrooms, laundry room, kitchen, car!"

And throngs of reviewers confirm they are incredibly effective on dishes. They are called Swedish Dishcloths after all.

One happy shopper reports: "You can really scrub with them, but they never feel yucky like a sponge does.... I've used the same two for a month now and they still look great, when they go downhill, I can compost them."
