UPDATE: March 23, 2012
After much consideration – and months of in-home testing and scrutinizing – I am convinced that e-cloth® offers a product that is equal in quality and performance to Norwex but is more reasonably priced. I still stand behind my review of the Norwex Enviro Cloth, but the e-cloth® General Purpose Cloth (and the new e-cloth® Antibacterial Cloth) performs just as well – and is of equally high quality – at a fraction of the price.
This morning, I absent-mindedly leant over and wrote “DUST ME” with my fingertip on the top of our printer. 3 hours later, the artful scroll grabbed my eye and I said “OK Day 4, here we go”.
The Enviro Cloth is as effective at picking up dust as my disposable Swiffer dusters (which have been sitting in my closet unused for a year now), but you don’t have to throw it out when it’s full. Some people suggest putting it in the dryer for a few minutes beforehand to charge up the static, but personally I find that a bit of a waste.
REMEMBER -When using the Enviro Cloth to dust:
- use it DRY
- fold it in half then in half again to get those 8 cleaning surfaces.
- try not to let it get all balled up. It’s not as effective balled up.
- Do NOT use Pledge or any cleansers/polishes (for stubborn dirt, dust everything then go back to that stubborn spot with a damp Enviro Cloth)
I dusted everything downstairs starting with the picture frames and knickknacks, then the electronics, furniture, lamps and sconces, window sills, baseboards, and doors. The Enviro Cloth picked up all the dust and trapped it so even in the sunlight, I didn’t see any loose bunnies or particles floating in the air.
All that and I only used half the cloth. I suppose I could use the other half upstairs… but Zander is napping so I’ll leave that for another day.
I gave the cloth a good shake outside afterwards but that darned cloth really holds onto the dirt so I rinsed it in the sink and then washed my kitchen counter with it ‘CAUSE I CAN (try that with your Swiffer duster).
Ready for Day 5.
