So, What is Rakōt75 Anyway?

When people joke about “inventing a new mousetrap” or “reinventing the wheel“, what they really mean is that most inventions do their jobs pretty well.

There’s either little need to think of anything new or little chance of coming up with anything better than we have already. If all inventors believed that, we’d still be living in caves and cooking buffalo stew on camp fires. Even the simplest things can often be done better.

Take cleaning, for example—a chore most of us love to hate. Who’d have thought there’d be a better way to scrub things clean than using good old soap and water? Thanks to Mr. Clean, that's changed.

When paper towels first came out, they were the rage. Clean it, wipe it and throw it away. It was the start of mass consumerism, but at the time no one was thinking about its impact on the environment.

It was nearly 15 years ago that we developed the idea for a durable, reusable "paper" towel and our research brought us to bamboo. Wonderful bamboo. Today, this durable and sustainable material is used for everything from cutting boards to clothing, so why not turn it into a cloth "paper" towel?

Rakōt75 was the very first bamboo cloth "paper" towel to come to market. Originally we sold it to commercial companies, but then realized that their employees were taking it home to use. So, we decided to make Rakōt75 available directly to eco-conscience consumers.


  • The original, world's FIRST reusable bamboo "paper" towels

  • Bamboo is sustainable and a better alternative to paper towels

  • Each cloth paper towel can be washed and reused for up to six months

  • Thick and do triple the work of traditional paper towels

  • Better for the environment, reducing the number of paper towels in landfills

  • The best value: one roll of 75 sheets at the best price

Rakōt75 is highly absorbent (it can hold up to seven times its weight in water), making it very effective at actually picking up and removing soil from a surface. It also has a long lifespan when properly used and maintained, and is lint-free. Rakōt75 has very few limitations — it comes with a similar cost as cotton rags or paper towels with MANY MORE benefits.

If you’ve tried the latest product from Rakōt75, you’ll know that technology really can make life easier. Not only are these cloths more hygienic, they avoid the need for expensive (and often harmful) detergents and they get things looking far cleaner in a lot less time. It’s not magic—it’s science.

What’s the best way to use Rakōt75?

Like a traditional cleaning cloth, you use them dry for dusting and very slightly wet for more general cleaning, but you’ll need to experiment. You can use Rakōt75 to clean virtually any surface. Try them on your bathroom or kitchen surfaces and you’ll be amazed at the results. (Sorry to sound like a bad TV advertisement, but these things really are good!)

You’ll literally hear things getting squeaky clean and shiny.

Cleaning experts say, when compared side-by-side, Rakōt75 is clearly superior to cotton and paper cleaning towels. So why do so many users continue to cling to traditional paper towels? The cost might be lower at purchase but there is a high cost to the environment.

Rakōt75 provides a greener, eco-friendly option for reusable "paper" towels that are thicker but act like and even out perform paper towels. They are also far more affordable at the end of the day.

“People are resistant to change,” says Darrel Hicks, industry consultant and author of Infection Prevention for Dummies. “I can’t believe people are still holding onto cotton as being a viable product when it just doesn’t stand up to these new products.
