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.
If you’re looking for a challenge, washing your windows with the Enviro Cloth isn’t it.
The Enviro Cloth is brilliant for washing windows inside and out. With no effort, it’ll remove fingerprints, dirt, crayon, water marks, dog and kiddie lick, spider poop, and the streaky, linty film that your Windex and paper cloths left behind.
The secret to using the Enviro Cloth for window washing is to use it as dry as possible. I usually very lightly dampen 1/4 of the cloth and wipe the window clean, then I follow-up with a dry portion to get rid of any moisture. In a matter of seconds the window is clean.
If you’ve got vinyl windows, you’re gonna love the way the Enviro cloth gets into all the grooves between the window and the screen. And hey, while you’re washing your windows, why not dust off the screen with the Enviro Cloth (dry) too.
Personally, I’ve got 135 year old wooden framed windows and storm windows. The Enviro Cloth is gentle on the blown glass and gets right into the corners of the wood (and cleans the wood amazingly well too).
5 Reasons why the Enviro Cloth is better than Windex and paper towel for cleaning windows (besides the fact that it’s faster):
- You only need one Enviro Cloth for all the windows in your house. The microfiber picks up the dirt, grease and grime and holds onto it. No mountain of paper towel. No Waste!
- The Enviro Cloth doesn’t leave streaks
- The Enviro Cloth doesn’t leave lint
- The Enviro Cloth is washable and reusable
- The Enviro Cloth doesn’t leave behind a sticky residue that attracts dust and dirt
Note: For absolutely streak-free windows, you might want to also invest in a Window Cloth (which does more than just windows, believe me).
