Review: The Ultimate Cloth

I don't know about your kids, but mine are MESSY. With a capital M and capital everything else as well. I spend my day wiping up spills and cleaning up messes and spraying cleaning spray and wiping surfaces off. So, when I was offered the chance to review a new cleaning product, I jumped at the chance.

The Ultimate Cloth is a very simple, unimpressive looking tool, but it is incredibly versatile and useful.  The cloth is made of a patented fiber and is designed to be used to clean every surface in your home, without chemicals.Click here for more information on exactly how it works.

I tested my cloth out on a number of the rooms in my house, and it did a good job of cleaning everything- counters, stovetop, windows... you name it, it did a nice job.  And, since I didn't have to keep stopping and spraying things or switching cloths, it was also a lot faster than my usual cleaning. When I was done, I just put the cloth in the washing machine and it came out ready to clean another day. 

I especially like that this cleans glass with just water, and really does leave the glass streak-free. For some reason the mirrors in our house are always needing to be cleaned, and we have a glass dining room table which has to be wiped off at least 6 times a day.  I just wet the cloth slightly, fold it up and wipe off the glass- and it's all shiny and pretty again.  It saves us a lot of paper towels in the course of a day!

According to the website, The Ultimate Cloth can be used to clean  windows, glass, mirrors, shower doors, bathroom tile, countertops, appliances - including stainless steel, corian, granite, marble, glass-topped appliances. Computer screens, TV screens, framed artwork, glass patio tables, sporting equipment your car (bumper to bumper - inside & out), boats and RVs. And the cloth can also be used in place of the wet mop refills on your wet mop.
I need to remember to take my cloth down to the car and use it on the inch of dust that's gathered on our dashboard.  I hate the smell of all the cleaners for use inside the car, so I'm always putting off doing that. It's exciting to have a nice, smell and chemical-free alternative! 

You can buy The Ultimate Cloth on their website. The size I received sells for $6, but you can get a discount if you buy multiple cloths. They also offer a larger size, designed for washing cars and other equipment or doing larger cleaning projects. And here's a link to their FAQ page- in case you have any more questions!
