Cut Cleaning Time With Microfiber Towels

Recently on CasaSugar, we've been looking for ways to cut down on home cleaning time. Readers offered up their personal tips and had some great suggestions.

A few months ago, I switched to microfiber towels to clean my home's sinks, floors, windows, tabletops,and mirrors—basically, anywhere I'd previously been using rags or paper towels.


Microfiber is made up of millions of microscopic fibers, and it's also found in products like wicking workout clothing. But microfiber also works great as a household cleaning product. It doesn't leave streak marks on glass and it's also super absorbent. When they get dirty, just throw them in the washing machine. There's no need to dry them either—their wicking fiber means that a spin cycle will get them almost completely dry.

Method makes microfiber towels specifically for marble, wood, stainless steel, and glass. Best of all, I've found that the towels really do cut down on my cleaning time, so I have more time to concentrate on other fun home projects.

Have any of you Casa readers tried cleaning with microfiber towels?

I switched to using microfiber cloths for the bulk of cleaning and I love it! The glass cloths are great for making my faucets look shiny, which I love. I've cut back on 95% of the paper towels I use as a result too. Hooray for micro-fibers!

I hate to ask an idiotic question, but do you still use glass cleaner with these, or does the fabric provide a degree of cleaning abilities on it's own? My friend says no to glass cleaner, but I'm not so sure.

Head to the auto dept. of any large box store like Target or Wal-Mart and you'll find lots of inexpensive microfiber towels there for metal and glass. I use them to clean my eyeglasses.

I got some microfiber towels at the Christmas Tree Shop and didn't realize they were microfiber until I tried one out on my countertop and was shocked at how absorbent it was! I definitely recommend these, especially if you can find them at a discount store!

I like the idea of no lint. That's one of my pet peeves in trying to get a mirror clean!
