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 performs just as well - and is of equally high quality - at a fraction of the price.

Foreword: Please don’t laugh at my ancient oven.  His name is Prince Peter. He’s sensitive. He refuses to have his drawer closed if he is mocked or sweared at.

I’m usually a pretty tidy stovetop cooker and I like to wipe up messes and oil splatter as I go. But there are others, who shall remain nameless, that use my stove and let things splatter, spill and boil over and then leave the  mess there until after the meal.

Either way, it doesn’t matter. The microfibre in the Enviro Cloth will pick it all up.

Stovetop cleaning is one of my favourite uses for the Enviro Cloth because it’s so darned easy. It picks up all the grease, burnt food, sauce and boiled over mess and leaves a streak free surface.

Simply dampen the cloth and wipe her clean.

If you have a stove that has burners that come out, you know what a pain it is to clean up boiled over messes that drip into the area under the burners. The Enviro Cloth is super absorbent so you can pick up the entire mess in a single go.

Cleaned the knobs and buttons on your stove lately? Maybe not since IT’S SUCH A PAIN if you’re using an old cotton rag and some cleanser. Try wiping them with a damp Enviro Cloth. It’ll change the way you think about cleaning your stove.

If you find that you regularly get hardened food on your stovetop, you may want to try the e-cloth stovetop cloth. It’s got non-scratch scrubby stripes on one side and our great old microfibre on the other.
