There are so many new products on the market every day that it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with them. Many of the “new” products are just different versions of items we already carry. If they seem like they’re better, different, or unique, we may choose to stock them. Of course, we can’t stock every item, so we try to be selective.

Earlier this year, Jack brought a sample pack of e-cloth home. I had never heard of it before, although it’s been around for a while. E-cloth uses only water to clean with and it says that it removes 99% of bacteria from hard surfaces, including e-coli and listeria. It’s also guaranteed for 300 washes.

The sample that Jack brought me was the kitchen pack. Enclosed were two cloths. One was the “kitchen cloth”, which is a 12.5″ x 12.5″ cloth with a “pocket” that’s meant for non-scratch scrubbing. This cloth is supposes to remove grease, oil, and bacteria. The second cloth is the “glass and polishing cloth” that is advertised to “bring a streak-free, smear-free and lint-free finish to glass, stainless steel, and shiny surfaces, all using just water”. That cloth is 16″ x 20″, but is much thinner than the kitchen cloth.

Well, Jack went to work the next morning and in the process of cleaning I decided to try the glass and polishing cloth. I got it slightly damp on one corner (the instructions say to spray water on the item that you’re cleaning, but I was being lazy) and then cleaned the glass in my china cabinet. I was amazed! When the glass turned out so clean and streak-free, I moved on to my dishwasher, which is stainless. That turned out great, so I tried my refrigerator (also stainless), my stove (stainless as well), the glass on my oven door, my microwave (stainless and glass) and my sliding glass doors in our living room. I was totally surprised by how good they looked with very little effort and no chemicals!

I have now tried the kitchen cloths as well as some of the others that are available. I use these cloths all around my house. Counter tops, tile, dishes, pots and pans, glass, stainless steel, mirrors….the list goes on and on. I find all of them to be useful and enjoy the time that they save.

The biggest selling feature of e-cloth is that you don’t use any chemicals to clean with them! That’s right, no chemicals! No sprays, glass cleaners, disinfectants, scrubbing agents, etc. It’s really nice to be able to clean with just water. Not only is it better for you health-wise, but it’s also cost saving.

E-cloths are on sale now through the end of August at both our Cripple Creek and Florissant Ace Hardware, Lumber & Supply stores!
