Do you use microfiber? Here's why you should.
When used damp, microfiber towels are great for removing smudged dirt, grease or stains. When using the microfiber towels damp, the squeegee like edges of each microfiber in a microfiber cleaning cloth scrape up the dirt while the open spaces keep the dirt in the microfiber towel.
You can accomplish all of this with a microfiber towel without adding any chemical cleaners. When using the cloths damp it’s usually best to get it wet and then ring it out til nearly dry. You don’t want it to be fully wet because the towel needs to have the capacity to absorb whatever you’re trying to clean off of surfaces.
Like with a dry cloth, when using a larger cleaning cloth it’s probably best to fold it to give you multiple new cleaning surfaces on the same towel. This damp method works best for scrubbing bathrooms, cleaning appliances, wiping down kitchen counters, cleaning car interiors and hundreds of other cleaning applications.
The absorbency of microfiber make it great for cleaning windows, even when just using the cloth with water. Microfiber cleaning cloths hold up to 7 times their own weight in liquid which allows them to clean glass while leaving no streaks. This feature also makes them great for cleaning up spills. This will allow you to cut down on the use of disposable cleaning products like paper towels.
Microfiber cleaning cloths are machine washable! When cared for properly you can expect to get several hundred washings out of a single cloth and it will be as effective as it was the day it was new.
I use my microfiber cloths every single day! I just drop them in the washer with cold water and Get Clean Laundry Detergent. Because they come out of the washer just damp, they take about 5 minutes to dry.
You can purchase them at Target or Wal-mart. But the best price I've found is at automotive stores. You save about $1.50 - $2.00 per bundle that way.
Give them a try. It's a cost investment up front that will save you a ton of money later!
