I never intended to do product reviews on my website. I became an affiliate for products I already loved, but I did not like the idea of committing to writing about something before I ever used it. How often do you see scathing product reviews? Never. The disclaimers always state their opinions are their own, yet somehow they are always positive. Lately, I have seen some reviews of a special brush that I will leave unnamed, and not one review mentioned children shrieking in pain the moment the poky bristles touched their heads. Maybe my girls are just weenies! Anyway, I did not want to do reviews because I don't really trust the ones I read.
Then I saw an opportunity to review e-cloth. I got sucked in! I looked at their product and really wanted to try it even though I was very skeptical about it working as claimed. I have severe sensitivities to many cleaning products and have tried countless all-natural products that just do not get the job done in the bathroom as well as the nasty chemicals, so I have resigned myself to popping a couple Advil, taking a couple inhaler puffs, and trying to clean as fast and infrequently as possible. This is why I was so intrigued by the e-cloth company's claim that I could clean with just WATER. There was no way I was going to pay for a product I was confident would not work, so I went ahead and applied to do a product review. I figured I could be the first to write an awful product review, and I envisioned it to be a very sarcastically entertaining piece. Unfortunately, e-cloth worked better than I could have imagined, and I don't get to write it. Instead, here goes my disclaimer: I received a free sample of e-cloth for review purposes. All opinions are mine. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Let's just pretend that I knew weeks ahead of time that I would be doing this review and intentionally let my sink get this disgusting. On the left, that's make-up stuck in toothpaste spit you see there and a lot of hair that you can't really see due to my photography ineptitude. On the right, you see a clean, shiny sink that I seriously cleaned with just water and the e-cloth. It looks nice, but I know you are thinking it is nothing earth-shattering. However, it took me a fraction of the time to clean. The hairs stuck to the cloth instead of sticking to the wet counter as they normally would with other cloths I have used.
Next I quickly wiped the toothpaste spatters off the mirror planning to come back and de-streak it with some an all-natural glass cleaner that I like. After a few minutes, I realized that there was no need. The mirror was clean and completely streak-free. I was officially impressed!
It was time to put e-cloth to the ultimate test after that. The windows in my front door drive me bonkers. They are so hard to clean. I know Windex would do the trick, but it would make me too sick. I absolutely cannot use it. I have experimented with numerous all-natural glass cleaners, but it is impossible to get a streak-free, lint-free shine on these particular windows with any of them and fly stains require some elbow grease. Here are a couple pictures of how they looked after e-cloth. Once again, it took considerably less time, and they look better than ever!
I also just have to brag a little about the amazing view I have out my front window. One of the perks of country life! Though I can't wait until the pasture gets green, instead of just the wheat.
The one caveat to my stellar review is that I do not know why they have so many different cloths. There is one specifically for glass that seems useless since the regular cloth shines glass to perfection, as you can see. I purchased the kitchen cloth and I can't wait for it to arrive!
I am the mother of seven children ranging from teens to a toddler, living out in the middle of nowhere, USA. I aim to hone the craft of giving advice without pretending to have this whole mom thing figured out. I am Christian, but not the really nice kind that is good at it. I am also conservative, but I promise not to be in your face with political agendas very often. I like to infuse humor into my writing, so don't freak out if you are offended or appalled by what you read here. There is a very fine line between serious advice and sarcastic hyperbole.
