Saving money and being “green” while cleaning..

Have you ever looked at how much money you spend on cleaning products each year? I don’t know about you, but Mr G is obsessed with buying very expensive toilet cleaner which claims to kill lots of germs and eliminate limescale, I’m not sure about the germs but it doesn’t deal with the limescale, and it does dye my toilet blue..but that’s another blog post. These cleaning products tend to contain lots of chemicals, and really I don’t like using them or having them around the children. When I was invited to an event with ecloth, I was delighted as I have been using their cloths for quite a while, and being able to visit the luxury 5 star Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, who themselves are proud to say they use ecloths to clean with, was an added bonus! 

ecloth, eliminate the need for lots of products to clean with, suddenly all you need is a bottle of water to spray onto a surface and an ecloth. How does it work? Most microfibre cloths have between 90,000 and 200,000 fibres per square inch, ecloth have 1.6million! The fibres are important as they trap grease, dirt and bacteria in between the fibres, so they catch bacteria rather than kill it. The benefit? You’re removing the problem rather than killing it and smearing it “dead” all over the surface! The bargain hunters amongst you will argue you can buy a cloth and spray cheaper than one of these cloths, but seriously, each cloth can be washed 300 times, so suddenly spending £5 on a multipurpose ecloth seems very good value to me? 

If you’re interested in how to clean your limescale riddled toilet, I can recommend using a little citric acid left (preferably over night) to work its magic, before giving a good scrub with a loo brush then flush! It’s worked magic on our loo! We use white vinegar as a disinfectant (not with the citric acid!) as due to it’s level of acidity it works magic at germ killing!

They incidentally, also love ecloth!
