Product Description

The ayate cloth is hand made in a very labor-intensive process. After agave leaves are cut, they are cooked and pounded into fibrous strands. They are then softened under rocks for up to one week. Next, one by one, each fiber is scraped and washed to remove any remaining plant debris. The fibers are then soaked in a natural lime solution and hung out to dry. Once dry, they are hand-woven, knitted or crocheted into ayate squares. The result is a 100% natural product which is mildew-resistant, machine-washable and which lasts for up to one full year of use. The ayate serves as a combination washcloth/exfoliating tool in the shower or bath, or it can gently exfoliate without soap. It can also be used to wash fruits and vegetables, cookware and fixtures. The ayate will not scratch and is perfect for use with bath and kitchen soaps, gels, lotions and creams.

My skin is ultra soft, ultra smooth and surprisingly, ultra blemish free.

I have had one of these exfoliating washcloths for years, and appreciate it's durability and also the soft feel of my skin after using it.

This type of cloth was given to me by my doctor some 40+ years ago. It took me quite awhile to get used to it but now, I will use nothing else. My skin is ultra soft, ultra smooth and surprisingly, ultra blemish free. I do not, and have never, used it on my face. I'm now 60+ and still getting comments on how great my skin looks and feels (even comments from small children who always say, "wow, your skin is so soft and smooth." My grandchildren tell me how they want to have skin like mine when they grow up. It's all because of this miracle cloth because beautiful skin DOES NOT run in my family. I use a much softer cloth on my face with exfoliating washes for the face and I have the same results with my face with the added benefit of absolutely no wrinkles, blemishes and softness.

I was looking for a natural-fiber exfoliating cloth and I ordered this one. Other reviewers complained that it rolled up when they used it so I was prepared. I have used it twice now and I love it. I don't mind at all that it rolls up -- it's a natural fiber and it is not natural for it to stay in a square when wet. If they mixed it with cotton, it would stay more square, but then it wouldn't be 100% fiber. I am happy with the performance and I feel like my skin is smoother after only 2 days. I will use it daily, and I am happy with it!
UPDATE: October 17, more than a month of using this daily and it is still in excellent condition and my skin is SILKY. I use different body washes with it, so I credit the cloth for the super soft skin. Yay!

I have bought one of these wash clothes at least 3 years ago from another company or web site and LOVED it so much. When I went looking for another new one I found your site. I bought 3. I am very happy with my new one as they last for years and really exfoliate and make my skin very smooth.thank you for such a GREAT product.

Ayate Exfoliating/Wash Cloth One word for these wash cloths, FANTASTIC! They work well with shower gel, and make you skin so soft and glowy.
No more messy, oil based body scrubs with non-recycle-able containers. Worth every penny, even at full price!

the product is fine so far, hasn't mildewed yet, but the weave is very loose, not as tight/thick as one i used to have that was better quality, but this was about the only one i could find and it works as i expected--very good for exfoliating, although i got a little over enthusiastic one day and it left a small scratch on my face and my chest.

I would recommend this product to anyone who wishes to feel really clean after a shower. They last a long time and you feel really exfoliated without the dryness.
