Kula Cloth

Small Business!
Kula Cloth

Kula is a pee cloth for anybody that squats when they pee.

A Kula Cloth® is the first of its kind an reusable antimicrobial pee cloth!

I used to pack in a lot of non-flushable wipes that needed to be packed back out. The whole situation was a hassle.

Now I have a Kula cloth and it's a game changer! No waste, no packing several plastic bags with clean and used wipes in my backpack. The Kula cloth snaps to my backpack and uses its antimicrobial properties and the power of the sun to stay clean!
