Do you own any microfiber cloths yet? If not, you need to run and get one immediately! Microfiber cloths are a must have in your green cleaning arsenal. They are amazing and good for the environment because they allow you to clean with just water. You also get the benefit of saving money on paper towels because you launder them and reuse. They work for all types of surfaces without scratching anything. I love them for doing dishes and dusting and wiping just about anything. Glass and mirrors shine with just water!
Why Microfiber Cloths Work?
Microfiber cloths, made of polyester and polyamide fibers, are woven or knitted into cloths. These fibers are 10-50 times thinner than the human hair. Because they are so tiny, there are millions used to make these cloths. There small size allows them to attach themselves to the smallest dirt particles. Microfiber cloths encapsulate dirt inside itself instead of pushing it around like traditional cloths.
Does Quality Matter When Selecting a Microfiber Cloth?
It is important to remember that all microfiber cloths are not created equal. The size of fibers they use can vary a lot which affects cleaning quality. Microfiber cloths are what I consider a splurge item when making your switch to green cleaning. Although they do sell microfiber cloths at the dollar store, this is not something I would buy there. Because of how much you will be using them, I suggest that you invest in a good quality one. And, it will last you for many years. Two of my favorites are Norwex cloths and E-cloths. Both offer a warranty if you are not happy with the products performance. Norwex’s cloths are thick and densley woven cloths that hold up over time. I have found E-cloths pill over time and Norwex don’t. If you are looking to save some money or just want to see if you like microfiber, E-cloth is a good starter option. Hands down, Norwex’s glass cleaning cloth beats E cloths. It is a difference you can feel.
I am a Norwex consultant because I really feel they deliver a great quality microfiber cloth among other products. If you want to learn more, head on over to my Contact Page HERE and drop me a line.
