You don’t need special cleaners to clean your windows – just use e-cloth and water.
The secret is to finish with a relatively dry Glass & Polishing Cloth on damp or wet glass – to leave a perfect streak-free finish. If the cloth is too wet, moisture residue does not evaporate quickly and the glass may not be left streak-free.
Spray the glass with water or dampen it with a wet Window Cloth (from our Window Duo Pack) or Window Mitt or General Purpose Cloth.
Then simply clean and finish it off with a Glass & Polishing Cloth.
It can be a good idea to fold the cloth and use it as a pad. This ensures good contact with the surface and gives you a number of dry areas of the cloth to use.
If the glass is particularly dirty, first clean with a wet Window Cloth (from our Window Duo Pack) or General Purpose Cloth.
Use a Window Cloth or a General Purpose Cloth, with just water to clean all window surrounds.
Rinse out regularly and squeeze as dry as possible for a final finish.
If the window surrounds are particularly dirty, then use warm or hot water to open the fibres of the e-cloths more and give increased cleaning power.
Stainless steel is notoriously difficult to keep clean and fingerprint-free. But you don’t need specialist cleaners to clean it – just use e-cloth and water.
As e-cloths use just water there is nothing that can damage the surface, which is one of the reasons why e-cloth is recommended by most of the leading stainless steel appliance manufacturers, including:
How to clean:
If streaks remain, it can be because of a coating put on by the manufacturer to protect the product during transit – or following the previous use of a specialist cleaner, many of which contain oils that fill the crevices of brushed stainless steel. To remove the oil from the surface or appliance, repeatedly use the cloth with hot water. The cloth can become saturated with oil and may need a hot wash.
Finish with a dry Glass & Polishing Cloth, for a perfect streak-free finish.
You don’t need chemicals or chemical-lite liquids to clean your floors – just use e-cloth and water.
All e-cloth mops come with a lightweight telescopic handle. This allows you to adjust the height to suit you. Extend fully to reach high or long distance areas.
To adjust the height of the handle, grip the bottom section of the handle (silver) with one hand and twist the top section (coloured) anti-clockwise. Once the length is right for you, twist the top section clockwise to tighten.
Rinse the mop head under a tap and wring out any excess water. Place the damp head velcro side up on the floor and attach the mop base to the centre.
For best results mop in an ‘S’ shape, maintaining the same leading edge to prevent dirt being left behind. Start from one corner of the room working toward you to avoid walking on the clean area.
We have a Flexi-Edge Dusting Mop for hard floors and walls. The edges of the mop head are flexible, enabling you to clean right up to skirting boards. It is lightweight making the removal of cobwebs at high level easy. The mop head can be removed and is machine washable.
E-cloths will surprise you with their ability to remove spillages including wine on carpets, clothing and other fabrics. The best products to use are the cloths with longer fibres, such as the General Purpose Cloth.
Use a damp cloth and let the absorbency of the fibres take up the liquid – and then gently work the fibres of the cloth into the fabric to draw out anything that may be left.
For stains or marks on carpets, clothing or other fabrics, there is nothing to lose by giving e-cloths and cold water a try before resorting to chemicals. Starting with a small test area first, dampen the stain and leave for a short period – then gently work the e-cloth fibres into the area. The sheer volume of fibres in e-cloths give them the power to help lift and reduce many stains.
Limescale build up is caused by mineral deposits from hard water. The longer you leave it, the harder it is to remove.
Regular cleaning with e-cloths and water will stop limescale developing, but e-cloths on their own will not remove deposits that have built up.
We recommend using natural products to remove limescale. A number of chemical cleaners may well be quicker, but the fewer chemicals we have in our homes and the environment the better.
The best natural cleaners are lemon juice or vinegar– with a bit of gentle scrubbing and elbow grease. Build-up around taps is best dealt with by soaking a cloth or cotton wool in lemon juice or vinegar and wrapping it round the affected area for one or two hours – occasionally squeezing it to get more liquid onto the affected areas. You may need a plastic scrubber to dislodge the more stubborn bits of scale.
Once finished, remember that regular cleaning with e-cloth will help prevent further build-up of limescale.
You don’t need specialist cleaners to clean your granite – just use e-cloth and water.
The secret to getting a perfect streak-free finish is to use a damp Granite Cloth, where excess water has been wrung out, and finish with a dry Glass & Polishing Cloth. If the cloth is too wet, moisture residue does not evaporate quickly and the granite may not be left streak-free.
How to clean:
As granite ages, it will benefit from re-sealing. The easiest way to check if your granite needs re-sealing is by splashing some water on it. If the water beads up then the surface is sealed. If it doesn’t and the water gradually soaks into the surface, then you should re-seal your worktops before cleaning – this is obviously particularly important if you are considering using special cleaning liquids, rather than e-cloth!
The sheer volume of e-cloth’s cleaning edges drawn across a surface gives a deeper clean than cleaning with chemicals. Their 480,000 fibres per cm2 give them enormous cleaning power. The fibres break up and remove more grease and dirt, incredibly using just water. Surfaces are cleaned so effectively that there is nowhere left for bacteria to grow.
Using high quality fibres, the construction of each cloth is specifically selected for the cloth’s end use – varying in fibre size, the way the fibres are processed, density and speed of absorption. They easily outperform and outlast traditional cloths and other cloths made with similar but lower quality fibres.

Unlike conventional cloths, as you draw an e-cloth across a surface, the fibres clean by breaking up, trapping and absorbing dirt and grease into the cloth. All this with just water.
The sheer volume of fibres, with their exceptional cleaning power, leaves no residues of dirt or chemicals. The fibres within each e-cloth are designed to achieve a very specific result.
Chemical-free cleaning with e-cloth is a major change from ingrained cleaning habits:
Lower quality microfibre products are unprocessed and have a flat weave resulting in poor absorption and cleaning properties – they also have a shorter life and can only be washed at low temperatures.
Unlike conventional cloths, as you draw an e-cloth across a surface, the fibres clean by breaking up, trapping and absorbing dirt, grease and bacteria into the material. All this with just water.
No need for expensive and time-consuming chemical sprays – just move from surface to surface with a water spray in one hand an e-cloth in the other.
The methods we all use for household cleaning have a serious impact on the environment.
