We’ll make sure we always keep a few of these around from now on

Microfiber cloths are your best friends when it comes to cleaning the kitchen. You might wonder if you can use these miracle cloths for any other tasks around the house, and the answer is: yes! Grab a (clean!) microfiber cloth for the following 5 chores.

You can use microfiber cloths for much more than just cleaning the kitchen!


Multiple studies have shown that microfiber cloths are very effective when it comes to removing nearly all bacteria and viruses. This has to do with the structure of the cloths. They are made of a web of microfiber that causes the bacteria to be captured. When you rinse the cloth in the sink, the bacteria wash away down the drain. It’s a brilliant invention, as far as we’re concerned! These cloths are perfect to use for the following chores:

1. Cleaning your phone

Your phone is one of the dirtiest things you own and it’s often completely covered in bacteria. That’s not that surprising if you think about the time we spend keeping up with social media, making phone calls, or watching videos on our phones. Luckily, there’s a simple remedy that will help you make your phone squeaky clean again. You’ll have guessed it: a microfiber cloth! By wiping the screen and the rest of the phone with a dry microfiber cloth, you not only remove all of the bacteria but also the greasy fingerprints. This way, your phone will look as good as new and be clean again as well!

2. Wipe up spills

Did you know that microfiber cloths can hold up to six times their own weight in moisture? Next time you’ve accidentally knocked over a glass of wine and it all ends up on the carpet, quickly grab a microfiber cloth. Mop up the moisture and then wring out the cloth in the sink. Next, clean the cloth with water and then treat the stain again.
