If you love makeup, chances are you hate removing it. As much fun as it is to apply beauty products, cleansing your skin of foundation, mascara and colorful products can difficult. Makeup wipes aren’t skincare-friendly, drying off with harsh paper towels is plain wasteful, and using your pristine white bathroom towels to wipe your face can lead to stains. But there’s a way to remedy the face washing dilemma.

The secret isn’t an expensive cloth or a fancy new product. It’s a simple black washcloth.

Black washcloths work during makeup removal for obvious reasons. They conceal makeup stains within their dark color, and provide a sustainable alternative to single-use wipes. But often these practical makeup towels end up being an eyesore, especially in pristine white bathrooms with light, airy decor.

Luckily, Amazon sells several black washcloths made for removing makeup — and they have cute beauty-themed phrases embroidered on them. While black washcloths look out of place and clash with decor, black washcloths with an embroidered purpose just look better. At least that’s how I see it.

Check out some options below to make skincare more cute and sustainable — and save some white towels along the way.
