Microfiber Cloths Make Housework Easier
Your housework will be easier and quicker if you use microfiber cloths for your general cleaning tasks. These are a relatively new space age invention. Each microfiber cloth has millions of microscopic fibers that grab dirt and dust and hold on to them until the cloth is laundered. You can find microfiber cloths in any home store and most big box stores carry them as well. If you have not tried cleaning with microfiber, now is the time!
For dusting, use the cloths dry with no chemicals. When you come to a sticky area or perhaps a ring left by a sweaty glass, just dampen the cloth with plain water and it will remove the marks. To avoid cross contamination, use different colored cloths for different areas: Pink for dusting, yellow for bathrooms and blue for cleaning kitchens for example.
Not Your Mother’s Dust Rags
Microfiber cloths will not leave lint behind so they are perfect for mirrors and glass. They can be used to blast through soap scum in tubs and showers when used with a good shower cleaner. You can also use them to buff the car wax off your automobiles without leaving tiny scratches in the finish. Microfiber cloths will not scratch sensitive surfaces like fine wood and fiberglass. You will be able to remove several cleaning items from your shopping list since microfibers clean most issues with plain water. No more furniture polish, for instance.
You must be careful when laundering microfiber cloths. Use cold water and regular detergent. NEVER use bleach or dryer sheets. Dry them in a cool cycle and they will last for years under normal household use.
