Microfiber

I used to clean mirrors with Windex and a paper towel. Then I switched to a coffee filter, which can be dried and re-used. Now I've acquired this cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Much more green, I'd say!

Microfiber is great for picking up dust and lint--and since it's washable, it's a great replacement for paper towels.

Want to try it? Just leave a comment and I'll enter your name in the drawing for a microfiber cleaning cloth--just in time for pre-holiday cleaning! Contest open until noon 12/12 (Wed.)--anyone may enter.

I've been lurking on your blog for awhile now and enjoy it very much. I've been wanting to try one of these as well, I've heard they're fabulous. I would love to be entered in the drawing, but can you also tell me where to find them?

Carrie,

Thanks for posting this! I'm always looking for safer cleaners around the house - I'll definitely check out that link.

I do have a couple bottles of Windex around here, but everytime I use them and I smell all that ammonia, I think to myself, there must be something out there that is safe that can clean these just as well...so thank you for solving my mystery!

I would love to be entered in the drawing!

Blessings,
Katie

I love microfiber and use this every day! I used it to add stuffing to our diapers too when we cloth diapered. I found the cheapest prices to be at Sam's Club- they are over in the automotive section.

Enjoy your green cleaning ;)

Carrie,
This is a wonderful giveaway! I heard about the joys of microfiber from Real Simple Magazine and proceded to go buy a few myself. I found a bunch at the dollar store and hope they work okay once we get to Rome. No need to enter me in the drawing since I already have some...

Carrie,
I love my microfiber cloths! My set actually came with a mini one for eyeglasses! Good suggestion, as usual. :) (Obviously, I don't need to be entered in the drawing, just wanted to ditto your sound advice.)

Megan said...

Yep, I'd love to try it too!

Carrie, I don't need to be entered in the drawing as I have several microfiber cloths -- but I wanted to second your post that they are great! :)
Love you, Mom

I would love to have a microfiber cloth! In the four months we've been married I've been encouraging my husband to use fewer paper towels. This would be a great help!

Carrie, thank you for your posts about going green - you are a wonderful influence!

I've thought about trying Shaklee products before. What do you think about them? Do you have any favorites? Please enter me for your drawing. Enjoy the holidays.

Hi Carrie:

Would you believe that my Aunt Louise used to use Basic H for cleaning almost everything when I was growing up & was staying at her house a lot?! She never did convince me to use it, however!!
ALso, I don't need to be entered in your drawing, as I have some micro-fiber cloths like the one I sent you in your Florida Box. I love them for cleaning glass, especially.
You are indeed an inspiration on the "Living Green" situation!

Love you, Grandma
