Swapping convenient easy to use packet wipes can feel like a luxury that’s a tough one to give up. Thankfully now there are plenty of alternatives to help reduce the risk of fatbergs, and remove the thought of sending loads of used wipes and plastic packaging to waste. We’ve delved into cleaning cloths to show how easy it is to ditch those wipes.
Here’s a few options to make swaps around your home and ditch those wipes. They are all machine washable so they can be used and re-used.
This range of colourful e-cloths can be washed and re-used and each colour can be allocated to a particular room or task.
They clean using just water (no chemicals) and are recommended by Good Housekeeping and Allergy UK.
Ecozone Bathroom Cleaning Cloths are another great reusable cloth choice which just requires water to make your surfaces sparkly clean. Use on your mirrors, cabinets, bath and tiles.
The Kitchen Whizz e-cloth is designed for a quick clean in and around sinks and taps. The extra long fibres clean hard-to-reach areas around taps and into corners. They rapidly absorb spills and remove grease, dirt and over 99% of bacteria, using just water!
The Vileda 1-2 Spray Flat Mop has a trigger spray which gives a fine mist of cleaning solution to the floor in front of the mop. Great to grab for quick spills or to give the floor a quick once over. You can choose what cleaning fluid to load into the handle, but its worth keeping a small jug nearby to load the fluid in a mess free way.
Important note on washing dirty cloths
Microfibre cloths can contain microplastics, so we recommend using a Guppyfriend Washing Bag to pop your cloths in when washing. This will prevent synthetic microfibers from entering into rivers and oceans.
These are just a few options to help move to cleaning cloths and to show how easy it is to ditch those wipes. If used with a wash bag this becomes another great small change that can make a big difference.
They’re even more impressive when it comes to cleaning effectiveness when using just water, we never thought it was possible until we found these.
