When I recently went to the International Housewares Association show, I met the daughter of the CEO of TADgreen Inc who makes the e-cloth. Their tagline is “perfect cleaning with just water”, so I knew I had to talk them. We've slowly been trying to eliminate the chemicals we use in our home (aff) (with 2 (aff) kids and a dog it is pretty important to us). I was very impressed with the demos they showed us there (like taking chapstick and rubbing it all over a stainless steel fridge door. A little water and one of these e-clothes and it was gone!), so I gladly took a Kitchen Pack and a Range & Stovetop Pack to review.
It is hard to believe that I was excited about basically dish clothes, but I was! E-cloth fibers are designed to provide maximum cleaning power. They are made from polyester and polyamide, and the fibers are 1,000 times finer than cotton fibers. Since the filaments are so small and strong, they can break up, lift, lock in, and clean deep down using just water. E-cloths also absorb 8 times their weight in water. Studies have also shown that e-cloths remove over 99% of bacteria too!
So what did we think? Awesome doesn't describe it good enough. Instead, after seeing that the front window could be cleaned (between the dog licking it and the kids fingerprints, it is nasty), my husband (yes, my husband) walked around with a squirt bottle of water and one of these e-clothes and cleaned every mirror and window in the house without being asked. (Feel free to faint now because I almost did at the time!). I've even heard him telling other people about these, because he was so impressed. The Range & StoveTop Pack was worked excellent on our stove too. We both hate cleaning it, so sometimes things get stuck on there a tad longer than we'd like. No problem to remove any of that with this!
I'm hoping to get my hands on the laundry bag, the glasses cloths, and the glass cloth too! They have e-cloths for every room in your home (aff), so go check them out! You won't be sorry, and the earth will thank you.
