Clean Up Without Toxic, Space-Hogging Cleaning Fluids

The e-cloth is a cleaning cloth that cleans virtually any surface without any cleaning fluids. The cloth has 1.6M threads/inch as opposed to most microfiber cloths, which have between 90K-200K and standard cloths, which have 25K-75K. The high density traps dirt, oil, dust and most any other particulate you put in its path. E-cloth also says the cloths remove 99% of bacteria from hard surfaces.

The company cites another interesting claim, saying:

‘Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women working away from the home.’ A 15 year study concluded that it is directly linked to the toxic household chemicals in the home.

Eliminating cleaning products, they suggest, is a great way of reducing the presence of those chemicals (we suspect it’s healthier for men too).

In terms of durability, the company guarantees the cloths for 300 cleans and says that if you wash it once a week, a cloth should last you about six years.

All this would be a bunch of marketing BS if the things didn’t work. But they do. We picked up one of their “Kitchen Packs” from Green Depot for the LifeEdited apartment, not knowing what to expect.  They work great, cleaning glass, chrome and counters equally well, all without cleaning fluids.

Beyond the lack of toxicity and durability, they eliminate a cabinet full of various cleaning products, saving space and creating less waste.

We often think of technology as something applied to faster laptops and hydrogen fuel cells, but sometimes it’s the mundane improvements to things like dress shirts and rags that really make a difference in the way we live.
