The General Purpose e-cloth ® was


The thing about the General Purpose e-cloth is that it cleans really well, but you can't really believe the hype (or me) until you try it. I know. I've been there. I was skeptical too!  For all our lives, we've been cleaning with sponges and cotton cloths and cleaning sprays. We've come to rely on them so it's hard to believe that you can clean just as well - better actually - with just a cloth and water.
But trust me! Once you try a General Purpose cloth, you're going to wonder why you didn't try it earlier. And if you don't like it, well, I'll give you your money back. I KNOW you're going to be impressed.
The e-cloth ® General Purpose cloth penetrates and removes dirt, grease, oil, grime and bacteria from all hard surfaces. No chemical residue is left behind – just a thoroughly cleaned, polished surface.
e-cloth ® offers the quality and performance of Norwex at half the price!
80% polyester/20% polyamide - Made in Korea.

What can you clean with the General Purpose e-cloth®?

  1. Use your e-cloth ® dry to dust. It'll even pick up drywall dust!
  2. Use your e-cloth ® wet to clean:
  • the fridge - inside and out

Washing Instructions

All e-cloth ® cloths and mop pads can be washed in your washing machine with low lint items (like jeans). Cold water will work, but hot water is recommended to allow the fibers to open and release dirt and grease.

Why e-cloth ® instead of your usual cleaning method?

It is the safest most effective way for you to clean almost everything.
Versatile, easier cleaning – e-cloth ® is excellent on stainless steel, countertops, glass, chrome, granite, marble, tile and wood – throughout the home, in the workplace or outdoors. e-cloth ® makes cleaning just about everyplace faster and easier
Clean, healthy living – there are no harmful chemicals or fumes because e-cloth ® uses fibers to clean – not a chemical reaction. e-cloth ® cleaning is safe for everyone, and is especially beneficial to those prone to allergies and asthma.
Money-saving cleaning – no paper towels or household chemicals to buy. Saving just one roll of paper towels a week and $10 a month on chemical cleaners, results in a yearly savings of almost $200. e-cloth ® performance is guaranteed for 300 machine washings.
Green household cleaning – e-cloth ® eliminates paper towels carbon footprint and landfill waste, along with pollution that chemicals create.

Why Kate Likes the General Purpose e-cloth ®

  1. This is just a simple cloth but I use it EVERYWHERE. It has no bells or whistles other than the fact that it cleans things really well and really easily. I use them daily for everything from spilled milk to dirty walls, to cleaning out my washing machine.
  2. I like to keep one in the car for "emergencies". They're great for cleaning up spills (or throwup) and will very quickly clean your dash and windows.
  3. I like the price on these. They're cheap enough that you can get a few so that you can always have one on hand when some are being laundered.

Do You Need More than 1 General Purpose e-cloth ®?

You can do a lot with one General Purpose e-cloth ®, but frankly, I think you'll want 4 - especially if you don't have any other e-cloths. With 4 you can have one for your bathroom(s), one for the kitchen, one for the rest of the house, and an extra for when the others are being laundered.

I'm not trying to sell you extra cloths. I do really think that you'll be happy with 4. You can save a bit of money and get 4 for the price of 3 with our e-cloth General Purpose Pack.

Do You Need Any Other e-cloths ®?

Hmmm. This is a tough one. Generally, you can clean everything with the General Purpose e-cloth but:

  1. If you deal with sticky stuff in your kitchen on a regular basis, you may want to consider the Kitchen Cloth (my favorite cloth for the kitchen), which has a little scrubby in one corner
  2. The General Purpose cloth will leave some moisture behind on the surface that may result in watermarks or streaks on shiny surfaces like granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass stove tops, windows, mirrors, etc. If you're cleaning shiny surfaces, I recommend investing a little extra money in a Glass & Polishing Cloth. You can save a bit of money by purchasing the Starter Value Pack.
  3. For dusting, the General Purpose cloth will work well, but the Dusting Cloths work a lot better.



How to Use the General Purpose e-cloth ®

Cleaning really doesn't get easier than this!

  1. For dusting, use the cloth dry. Fold it in half and then in half again and then just start dusting. As one side gets full, flip to another side. When you're done, brush the cloth off and you can use it again!
  2. For most other cleaning, I recommend using the General Purpose e-cloth damp (or spray the surface with water and wipe with the cloth)
  3. You'll feel the cloth drag a bit over dirty areas. Continue wiping gently until the cloth no longer drags.
  4. The General Purpose e-cloth will leave some moisture behind which may result in waterspots or streaks. If these concern you - particularly on shiny surfaces like windows/mirrors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass cooktops, etc. - I recommend following up with a Glass & Polishing cloth. For a great value, you might want to consider the General Purpose 4-Pack or the Starter Value Pack.

NOTE: If streaks are left behind, your General Purpose ecloth is either too wet or it is removing old cleaner residues. If you've used chemical/commercial cleansers/polishes for cleaning in the past (particularly on your stainless steel appliances or wooden furniture), you may have to wipe several times with the General Purpose e-cloth to remove the spray residue. But stick with it! Your house, furniture and appliances will be cleaner than it ever was before!

I couldn't be happier with these cloths! I have similar cloths from another company and I think these actually do a better job picking up the grime. I was so happy to designate specific cloths for certain areas in our home (& my 4 & 6 year old can safely use them for cleaning which is a huge plus!) I have one cloth for our bathroom sinks (we call it the "pink sink" cloth) and one for toilets (it's yellow and we call it the "pee pee yellow rag"... can you tell I have 3 little boys?) I just rinse them well with hot water each time and hang them on hooks in bathroom. LOVE e-cloth - durable - cost effective - simple. I will definitely be buying more.

I ordered a few different E cloths from Kate. I have only used the general purpose on so far and I love it. I use it to clean off my kitchen counters and wipe up spills on the floor that are frequent with children! I boiled it to clean it but will probably throw in the washer the next time. I also purchased the bathroom kit and the household starter kit. I'll review those once I use those in our new house. Thanks, Kate!!!

The general purpose cloth cleans well and picks up everything, the only complaint I have is it does seem to leave quite a bit of water behind which causes some streaking but I'm sure if you use the polishing cloth to go back over it that would take care of that problem

So much more economical than the norwex cloth and does a great job. This cloth can be used on anything you are trying to clean and its so easy to use(just water). Have a cloth chair? Stains will come out with this cloth that have been there awhile and for immediate spills, this cloth gets it up in a hurry.

I had won 2 Norwex cloths and loved them, but didnt love the price. I saw these and thought I would give them a try. They are just as wonderful as the Norwex cloths at a much more reasonable price!

At least as good as Norwex, but more economical! Nothing can get past this cloth!

I've only used Norwex clothes in the past, but since my friend (who was my consultant) quit selling them and I didn't want to search out a new rep, I began researching other alternatives. I came across information about e-cloths and how people liked them just as much as Norwex so I decided to give them a try. I love them! The only difference I have noticed between the e-cloth and the Norwex cloth is that the e-cloth fabric has a slight "shine" to it and feels silkier. I think it's just a difference in the microfiber. Both my e-cloth and Norwex cloths clean great, but the e-cloth is MUCH less expensive. I was worried because it doesn't contain the imbedded silver that Norwex touts as important. I don't disagree that it's a good thing, but if you research online, the imbedded silver isn't absolutely necessary, either. I am so glad I tried e-cloths! I will also continue to use my Norwex products, but I also plan on buying and using more e-cloth products too!

AMAZING! I hate cleaning the fridge because it takes forever. I remove the food, remove the shelves and drawers, wash them in the sink, and then put everything back together. I would rather scrub toilets all day. These towels continue to amaze me every time I use them. I took the food out and then just wiped everything down and out with the general purpose towel. I then wiped the glass shelves down with the window cloth and then the polishing cloth. I didn't need to remove the shelves and drawers. It took me less than half the time it normally does, and my fridge looks brand new. Plus, I have eczema on my hands and forearms, so washing soapy stuff in the sink burns and makes my skin even more dry and itchy. That problem is eliminated with these towels.

My mom and sister both have Norwex, but I fought buying them off forever because I didn't want to pay that much for towels. I found this site because of Kate's Norwex reviews. I was really skeptical because the e-cloths were so much cheaper. I was amazed! I cannot believe how great these towels are, and the price is incredible. I will never clean with anything else. My fridge looks so good and it was so much easier to clean, I can see myself cleaning it monthly.

These towels are a MUST for any home in this world! I cannot sing its praises enough! This is an absolute must have!!

I recently purchased 2 general purpose cloths & LOVE them! They really do make cleaning easier without the use of chemicals.

I just finished cleaning the 2 showers that are in our crew camper (we have a harvest company). 8 guys have been taking showers in them for the last 8 months...and apparently not cleaning them. With the help of my general purpose cloth & Norwex cleaning paste (yes, I use both products) those showers have never been so white. If I could post pictures of the before & after, I would!

The customer service I received after ordering has been great!

I'm trying out e-cloth because the price point is more reasonable than Norwex, and have been loving its performance so far. Like another reviewer said, it can be a little streaky if you don't squeeze the cloth hard enough before wiping down stainless steel.

I am very picky in terms of cleaning. Tried different brand of cloths and chemicals. So, far, this one is my favorite. Cleans well, lasts long, priced reasonably. I have place third order on the pack of four cloth. Highly recommended!

I'm going to focus on just one aspect of these cloths. I make body cream, lip balm, and other products which use beeswax and coconut oil. These can be awful to clean off bowls and utensils. But once I got e-cloth,I was able to quickly and easily clean everything (in hot, soapy water, of course). Literally 2 swipes with this cloth, and the goop is gone. It makes my projects much easier to tackle.

Reviewed by Hedda , 05/12/12

This cloth is great. I used it to clean my walk-in shower. I had a lot of accumulated soap scum (don't judge me!) but with enough elbow grease this cloth powered through it and my granite tile was cleaner and shinier than it's been in far too long. Then I used my second cloth on the kitchen sink (worked great!) and continued with kitchen counters and cupboards. The only downside is that it makes you realize how dirty things were because it's picking up all the yuck and showing it to you. I'll be stocking up on these for the house!

Reviewed by Alexandra , 30/10/12

Incredible!! My house has never been cleaner - with these cloths I can clean anything with half the work and it still ends up twice as clean as any other method I've ever used. Plus, no chemicals - just water - could it get easier or safer??

Received my order and I am not thrilled. I used Norwex first, and I love how that product works. It is just too thick. Also, when I clean I fold my cloth into 1/4th's. When I run into a sticky part of cleaning my cloth bunches together and I have to refold the cloth and don't end up being able to use 8 sides because 3 get messed up. It seems to repel when I put it in water and I have to keep squeezing the product to get water in. Yes, I HAVE boiled them and washed them by themselves. They leave water all over the place, making me uncertain it is REALLY cleaning. For my sink this is REALLY irritating. With Norwex, all I have to do is wipe out my sink and it dries streak free and beautifully WITHOUT shining it with a window cloth. Definitely not happy. But if you want a CHEAP cloth, this is it.

I wanted to share a cleaning story with you.  My sister and I were recently "blown away" when I was able to quickly remove blood from a light gray (almost white) throw rug. There were three dried (12 hr) spots which came clean using an all purpose cloth. I am a retired RN and she is retired from working as a phlebotomist. Neither of us could believe our eyes....blood can be impossible to remove.....especially after drying so long.

I love these products.

I tested glass cloth on shower door glass and it did a fabulous job, my husband did not believe me it could clean that old water stains and started to test it by himself :) he was amazed that it worked and still questioning me how just a cloth can do it.

Thank you for making my work easier!
