I have autoimmune arthritis and carpal tunnel. Why am I saying this when reviewing cleaning cloths? Because one of the things that causes me the most pain is scrubbing. I am always looking for the best tools to get things clean with the least harm to me, the environment, and my wallet. These cloths are the mainstay of my cleaning caddy because they make deep-cleaning EVERYTHING so much easier!I use the white cloths in the kitchen, blue in the bathroom, yellow everywhere else. The mircrofiber picks up dirt from all surfaces without damage. It’s great for streak-free glass and mirror cleaning. Cleans tubs, showers, grout, and tile. Gets toothpaste off the faucet and leaves it sparkling without scratching. It cleans walls without removing paint, gets dust and pollen off blinds, and is great for cleaning spills on hardwood floors. Need to clean more of a floor but don’t want to mop? Put this over your mop head and wipe things up. I keep a stack of these ready to go under every sink, and I carry a few when kayaking to wipe my glasses, mop out bilge, whatever—just don’t mix the two up!When I have used one of these, I throw it in a bucket hanging in my laundry room, keeping the white cloths with cloth napkins and dish towels, and the others with my washable mop heads. Once a week, I clean them on sanitize with detergent and a bit of bleach. I like to hang them to dry outside for a crispier surface, by they dry fine in the tumble dryer too.I have these on subscribe and save, with a new pack every six months. I literally do not buy paper towels now, because there is no need. At all. Did I mention these are great on stainless steel? Clean, no streaks or fingerprints. Clean your woodwork or baseboards with them too. Need to apply furniture polish? Got you covered with these! Kids cook something on the stove and leave a baked on mess? Wet one, put it on the mess, leave it for a few to soften, then wipe it up. Oh, and because it’s a cloth, cleaning wire shelves or behind a tap is easy—just wrap it around, give it a little back and forth, and done!Oh, and if you are so inclined, take a clean one of these, soak it, put it in a baggie, put in a dab of isopropyl alcohol or hand sanitizer, and freeze. Flexible cold packs that don’t over-chill tissues for the win!Seriously, these are great. Heck, you can even put roll them around a paper-towel tube and have them on your holder. They’ll stay put, and instead of automatically grabbing a paper towel, you’ll grab these instead.After all this enthusiasm, please know that I loathe cleaning. That I can give some cloth all this hype for something I hate doing should say it all!
Hotels color code their cleaning cloths. One color for under the toilet seat, one for the sink, one for glass surfaces, one for the rest of the toilet, etc. Doing it this way prevents cross contamination, for example, from the germy toilet to the bathroom mirror.
I used those on every cleaning type around the house – windows, floors, countertops, baseboards. Easy to clean by hand or in the washing machine. They are soft enough to scrub all the paint left by constructors on all the window frames and vinyl fence. They had been the greatest help while cleaning around the house. I will never use another type of cloth for cleaning. Also they are cheap enough to replace them when they get too worn out.

I really love these. I have them in a basket on my kitchen counter. We use them for everything. Cleaning counters, wiping up spills, mirrors, the stove, everything. They wash up very nicely, the great affordable purchase.

Size is good and they are very absorbent
I love these clean cloths. The work great on patio furniture, boat just about anywhere. They absorb great and when cleaning residue, crumbs and debris stick to them for a good cleaning! Definitely saves on those expensive paper towels!

I love my microfiber cloths, I use it for everything, I especially love them for cleaning
I was noticing hospital housekeeping at work using these cloths and they seemed to clean everything. When I received my order I use these to clean everything and it’s a game changer. No streaks, no lint, very absorbent, and no more mixing up cleaning cloths with my good household towels. The quantity and quality is a great value for the price.

These cloths are the most amazing and versatile cleaning product I’ve ever used! I had no idea when I bought them how many things you could clean with them and how many cleaning products they would replace. Here’s a sample. They can easily replace:*Paper towels*Windex, Glass Plus, etc.*Comet, Ajax (except in the worst cases)*Mr. Clean Magic Sponge (they work exactly like Magic Sponge on light grease buildup)*All kinds of soap/cleaning productsUsing just water with these cloths, you can clean so many things that used to require soap and water. Like a greasy stove, or the grease build-up in your kitchen and bathroom sinks.The real trick to keeping your house clean is to clean often before the dirt and grease have a chance to build up. But when you have to use soap – it really discourages you from doing it too often because everything turns into such a big job. Like, would you really clean your microwave after every couple of uses? No! Because it’s too much work to clean something that’s not that dirty yet. You have to use some kind of soap with water, then you have to use more water and a few more minutes to rinse away all the soap. So most people just wait until it’s dirty enough to make all that work worth it. But with these, you can literally clean after every use. Just wet one, and wipe the microwave down one time (10 seconds max)… and you’re done! The end result: the microwave is NEVER dirty!And it’s so easy to clean things that used to be so hard. For instance, if you want to keep your stove sparkling clean after cooking a meal that resulted in a lot of greasy splatter… just fold these twice, wet one side and after you finish cooking wipe down the stove, then turn it over and wipe again with the drier side. Then take a second one that’s dry and wipe one more time. And voila, your stove will be completely clean, no grease or oil left! They’re really amazing. And I LOVE not having to use soap on everything. It makes it so much simpler and quicker to clean.I actually enjoy cleaning now, because it’s so quick and easy. The trick on cleaning things like your stove is to do it often. I do it every 3-4 times I cook. I should do it every 2-3 times. But the point is to do it often enough that the grease splatter doesn’t have a chance to build up so much that you need something stronger to clean it with.They are also so absorbent that they’ll soak water right off anything they touch. I even find myself reaching for them when I want to dry my hands quickly – because I know they’ll suck the water right off. They don’t feel as good on your hands as a soft cloth or paper towel does – but they do a much better job at drying them.They dry very fast too. If I soak one in water, and then wring it out, it will be dry within 3-4 hours.You can clean all kinds of things with them, from the stove, to sinks to windows and mirrors. I’ve even used them on my eyeglasses – although I’m not sure that’s a good idea as they may rub the various coatings off after a while. But I did it on an old pair so no harm done – and they clean every bit as well as my old eyeglasses spray and a paper towel did. And all you need are one of these cloths and a few drops of water!They’re also amazing at picking up dust when they’re wet or dry. Just wipe the surface once and the dust is instantly gone.I’ve found the quickest and easiest way to clean most things from windows to stove tops is what I suggested above for the stove. I take two of them and fold them over twice. Then I wet one side and wipe it all over whatever surface I want to clean. Then wipe again with the backside which should be a little drier. This will pick up all the excess water, which will then make it easy to fully dry with the second dry cloth. Just use it to wipe one more time to fully dry the surface. Seriously, what could be simpler or quicker? I can clean my stove, microwave, dining room table, plus two glass living room tables all in less time than it used to take me to clean just the stove!I’ve put a couple of these in my shower. And every other morning after I shower, I take one and wipe down the glass doors, then I wring it out and wipe them again. Then I take another dry one and wipe one more time. The doors are spotlessly clean and there’s never any build up from evaporating water. No water spots! In all, less than a minute every couple of days to keep the glass shower doors spotless!These are saving me a TON of money in soaps and various other cleaning products!
