Friends don’t let friends clean with chemicals.
And since you are our friends, I share about non-toxic cleaning because it’s made a huge difference in our own home over the past several years.
And I say “we” because now my kids can safely help and my hubby cheerfully joins in as well. E-cloth cleaning is also safe for pets.
Did you know the EPA has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top five risks to public health? Chemical cleaners are a major contributor as they release carbon-based gases that can linger in the air for days to weeks.
How Microfiber Cleaning Works
Here is how high quality microfiber works. A damp cloth picks up bacteria and most likely food allergens as well. Then when you rinse the cloth out, more than 99% of those particles are flushed out of the cloth. Hanging the cloth to dry after rinsing further takes care of any minute remainder of bacteria. A non-smelly cloth that can be reused for a week, when rinsed and hung to dry after uses, is proof that bacteria is not lingering in the cloths.
As for allergy clean-up, we do have milk and nuts in our home, and I have not used bleach or surface cleaners in my kitchen for over 3 years. It is our belief that e-cloths pick up microscopic food proteins like they do bacteria although this has not been proven in a lab like bacteria pick-up has been.
Common sense. If I use an e-cloth on a high-bacteria area like the floor, toilet, or raw meat…I throw it in the wash. And if I clean up a high-food allergen area, the cloth also goes into the washing machine. Watch Lou Manfredi clean chicken juice with e-cloth!
But for everyday use like counter crumbs, stove messes, water around the sink, door handles, light switches…I really do have cloths last a week between washings. This saves on so much laundry over time, and I have fewer e-cloths in rotation than I did cotton rags.
“I used my ecloth for the first time last weekend. I was really impressed with how it handled my coffee pot stains and bath tub! I have an old enamel tub and I could actually feel the cloth sucking up the soap scum! I love how everything is washable too.” Emily S.
“E-CLOTHSSSSSS!!! Oh my gosh I was skeptical who wouldn’t be but I am a neat freak and now am addicted.” Deedra
“OK, I was so skeptical about these as I’ve never heard of a product that can clean so well without any chemicals. But after I cleaned one window I was hooked! I cleaned every window in my house in less than an hour. I waited until the next day to see if they were really clean and there were no streaks whatsoever. I am a tough critic on gadgets but this product is worth every penny. I can’t wait to try the mop! I highly recommend them especially if you want to avoid toxic chemicals around kids.” Cindy
