The e-cloth General Purpose Cloth is one of the two original e-cloths. Its thicker fibers and wedge shape construction absorb spills and remove dirt, grease and over 99% of bacteria, using just water. How to Use Wet thoroughly and wring out. Clean with the cloth damp, with just water. For heavier dirt, first use wet before finishing with a damp 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 a number of different cleaning sides. Use dry for dusting. The fibers' natural positive charge attracts dust. TIP: For best results, finish with a dry Glass & Polishing Cloth, for a perfect streak-free finish on windows, mirrors, stainless steel and other shiny surfaces. Care Instructions A warm rinse is often enough in day to day use. Machine wash regularly at medium temperature, using a little detergent and rinse well. If too much detergent is used, cleaning performance may be reduced, in which case, hot wash without any detergent. The cloth will benefit from an occasional hot wash at high temperature or sterilizing by boiling in just water. * Tumble or hang dry. * DO NOT use bleach, which damages the fibers or fabric conditioner, which inhibits performance. If used by mistake, rewash with a little detergent. Note: Color may run. Wash new cloths separately.E-Cloth + Water Is Enough — Dampen with water. Leave only water behind.
