Eco-conscious families will want to try the E-cloth. This dense microfiber cloth offers a chemical free way to clean your house with just water. Instead of using paper towels when you clean, try a reusable E-cloth. They will last for up to 300 washes, which helps save trees and landfills.
E-cloth has been tested and proven to remove over 99& of bacteria from hard surfaces using water, no chemicals. Although I am not able to scientifically verify that particular claim, I can tell you about my experiences using the E-cloth to clean various surfaces around my own home.

There are several different types of E-cloth available. The one you use will depend on the type of surface you are trying to clean. I love the General Purpose E-cloth from the Kitchen Pack for my kitchen surfaces. It does a great job wiping grease off of my stove top, keeping my sink clean and free of water spots, and picking up crumbs and sticky messes from counters and table tops.
The General Purpose E-cloth is the best cloth I have ever used for cleaning. In fact, I liked my review sample so much that I have already ordered more of them! They are great for absorbing, too, which comes in handy all the time at my house to clean up liquid spills. I use my General Purpose E-cloth for just about everything. It makes my job faster and easier when I can simply wipe, rinse, and repeat.
In the past, I have tried using a water/vinegar solution as an eco-friendly way to clean my mirrors, but it could never eliminate the streaks. So when I used the Water Atomizer to use plain water all by itself to clean my mirrors, I was really surprised that the Glass & Polishing E-cloth actually worked! All the smudges and fingerprints were gone, my mirrors sparkled and were streak-free. USING JUST WATER! The cloth did not leave any lint behind on the mirror. This is also the cloth I now use to keep my stainless steel refrigerator handprint-free.
The Bathroom E-cloth is spongier than the other E-cloths so that it can hold water while you clean. I use it to wipe down my bathroom sinks, counter tops, tubs, and tile. It works great to remove my most common bathroom sink enemies: leftover toothpaste and mouthwash dribbles. I also thought it did a nice job removing soap scum from the tiles in my shower. I could actually see the soap scum coming off onto the E-cloth before I rinsed it to wipe again.
My tubs are a bit more challenging because we have extremely hard water that leads to mineral build up. The Bathroom E-cloth and my own elbow grease could not get through all the layers of mineral build-up, but I am still pleased with the cleaning results in general.
The Window E-cloth is simply amazing. Once again, I got sparkling, streak-free results (just like I got with the Glass & Polishing E-cloth on my mirrors). I cannot believe that all the sticky kid hand prints, dust and dirt on my windows came off with just water and cloth alone. No streaks and no lint, either! This cloth also cleans the windowsills and door frames.
The cleaning ability of the E-cloth was the biggest selling point for me. It is superior to any cleaning cloth I have used in the past. The environmental and health benefits are an excellent bonus since I want to “Clean Green” at my house. I like that I can clean without spraying chemicals, especially in areas around food and my children.
E-Cloth makes it easy to find the right cloths to use for your different household cleaning tasks. The cloths are sold in convenient job specific packages such as the ones I received for review, which include: The Kitchen Pack, Bathroom Pack, and Window Pack (shown in above photo).
