Cut cleaning time in half!
“Cleanliness is not next to godliness. It isn't even in the same neighborhood. No one has ever gotten a religious experience out of removing burned-on cheese from the grill of the toaster oven.”
― Erma Bombeck
I wouldn't exactly say I LOVE to clean, but I do like the final result of a tidy house, a clean kitchen, a beautifully made bed. I like order. I have clear memories of growing up watching my father coming home from NYC out to the suburbs of Connecticut on the 7pm train, walking in the door, probably tired, and no matter what, he would walk around the family room fluffing pillows, straightening pictures on the wall, adjusting lampshades even if they didn't need it. Everything in its place. He too liked order.
Just like my father, I love roaming through hardware stores. Recently I was milling about in our local store and a display caught my attention. There was a video screen directly above the display and before I knew it I was totally drawn in. This is what caught my eye...CHEMICAL FREE CLEANING. I wanted to know more. Within 5 minutes I had two e-cloths in my basket and home I went to give it a try.
I hit the kitchen first. I have a black enamel topped stove, it shows grease, spills, dust and no matter how often I clean, there it is again. I have tried many different types of cleaners, all leaving streaks. On to the e-cloth, I followed the directions...run it under hot water, squeeze out excess water and go for it. I have to say it was amazing. I used the general purpose cloth and followed it up with the glass and polishing cloth and I was done. Depending on how much grease and grime is on your stove you may need to rinse and repeat before polishing. I moved onto my stainless steel, the sink and the countertops as well and everything was clean and shiny without much effort not to mention chemicals.
How does this work and how sanitary can this be??? I am copying the information below directly from the e-cloth website as they can explain it far better than I ever could...here you go!
The cloths are made of polyester and nylon, so they don’t “absorb” anything. Water, dirt, oil, grease, grime and even bacteria are trapped within the fibers – so the more fibers you have the better the cloth works. Think of it as millions of tiny hands grabbing onto everything on the surface of your counter-top or sink. e-cloths have 3.1 Million* fibers per inch.
The cloth is also proven to remove over 99% of bacteria from a hard surface. These cloths don’t kill bacteria, they collect bacteria from surfaces. This is another benefit of all of those fibers – they literally scrape the surface clean at a microbial level. The best part – when you run this cloth under hot water in your sink, all but .01% of that bacteria, dirt, oil and grease is released from the cloth down the sink. So, there is virtually no transfer back onto clean surfaces.
The National Research Council reports that “No toxic information is available for more than 80% of the chemicals in everyday use products.” Not only do you not know what chemicals you're exposing your family to, there isn’t a way to find out.
e-cloths come with a 300 Wash Guarantee. You do daily cleaning with e-cloth and rinse the cloth out in the sink under hot water. Once each week, wash the cloth with your regular wash (do not use bleach or fabric softener) and they are ready for another week of cleaning. If you wash the cloth once each week, the cloths are guaranteed for about 6 years of cleaning. In six years, how many paper towels, wipes, spray cans and bottles of chemicals will you go through?
Last but not least, they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back. What do you have to lose? Not only will save time and money but you will have a healthier environment at home and you will save our landfills.

While there a number of cloths in their line, I would recommend starting with the General Purpose Cloth and the Glass and Polishing Cloth. From there you can choose what will fill your needs. I personally have moved down the line and I am sold. I have a stand up shower that is impossible to rinse once it was cleaned. Now with the bathroom cloth I can wash, rinse and wipe down all with one cloth and no water all over the floor! If you are an Amazon Prime customer, they also sell their cloths, multi packs as well.
Save time...money...improve your environment at home and globally. Happy cleaning!
