So how is it that just a cloth and some water can get your surfaces as clean, if not cleaner, than if you were using a traditional cleaning agent to perform such wonders? Well here at EcoGreenStore we thouight that we’d answer that question for you and shed some light on exactly how e-cloths work.
E-cloths are made out of a material known as microfibre. A microfibre is a microscopic strand 100 times smaller than a human hair. These microfibres, which are wedge shaped in appearance, are woven together to make a cloth material. Each square centimetre of this cloth is made up of nearly 500,000 strands! It is this which gives each e-cloth its fabulous cleaning and absorbancy qualities.
So when you spray a little water over the surface which you wish to clean and then wipe over with your e-cloth each of these thousands of micorfibres work together to absorb the water along with all the grease, grime and dirt too. It really is top quality cleaning with just water.
Like all household items that we invest in, they all need a bit of TLC to keep them working ‘as new’ and at their very best. So how should you care for your e-cloth to ensure that you achive its excellent reslults time after time for its whole expected life span?
Caring for your ecloth is simple. After using your e-cloth to clean your home it will need washing, so take your dirty e-cloth and place it, and your other dirty e-cloths, in your net laundry washing bag. Place this in your washing machine drum with a small amount of detergent in the machine (do not use fabric conditioner), set the machine to the recommended temperature (optimum temperatures do vary between cloths) and let the cycle complete.
Once the washing cycle has finished, take your e-cloths out of the machine and laundy bag and dry by either haning on the line or tumple dry.
Now your e-cloths are ready once more to perform those cleaning duties for which they were meant for.
So how do you know which e-cloth to use on which surfaces and rooms within your house?
