Microfiber cleaning cloths
Edited on Sat Apr-02-11 12:27 AM by kestrel91316
I am rapturous. I have found my new favorite thing around the house. And they are going to save me a TON of paper towels when I clean up around the litter box where one of my two cats habitually hangs his butt over the edge when he pees!

And the best news: 99c stores has a huge supply of these puppies for, you guessed it, 99c. And they are nice and big and a lovely pale blue that goes well in my home, lol.

I'm in love. Nothing better for 99% of what I need to clean around the place. They even got the persistent pale layer of some sort of goo on my bedroom sliding closet door mirror that for 3 1/2 years I thought had to be a factory defect.

Oh, and ETA: with a little bit of water, they are the only thing that really cleans spots from my carpet, which is that universal apartment beige and shows every little thing.

2. I love the ones they have for glass and mirrors.
They work great for getting kitty nose prints off the windows. Dried kitty boogers are a huge pain to remove with paper towels. I was using the regular ones on my Swiffer until it broke apart. Might have to check to see if one shows up at the Goodwill.

7. Dried kitty boogers
In all my years of being a cat lover or owner, I'd never heard that term before.

6. They have packages of 8 (I think) at Office Depot for $4!!!!
And Walgreens had packages of them in their automotive section, but they lacked prices.

Use them in our cat rescue!

You can get 36 cloths (16 X 16) at Costco for around $15.00.

11. Soak and wash them in some original Dawn dish detergent & then vinegar rinse to get them clean!

My friends who have a house cleaning business use these microfiber cloths for all sorts of cleaning tasks.

I have found them to be excellent for cleaning painted woodwork prior to repainting. Only water was needed!
