Some general tips:
- It can be a good idea to fold the cloth and use it as a pad. This ensures good contact with the surface and that there are a number of separate clean areas of cloth to use.
- Thicker cloths absorb more water and give a deeper clean. Using warm or hot water opens out the fibres more, increasing cleaning power.
- Lighter-weight cloths can be less absorbent which enables them to give a streak-free finish to all hard surfaces. When used as a finishing cloth, they should be used dry or nearly dry.
- e-cloths can be used with other cleaning products but, because they clean so well with just water, it is not recommended. Bleach should be avoided as it breaks down the fibres. Effectiveness can be reduced by the fibres becoming clogged by other cleaning agents.
