Bamboo Microfibre Cloths – Why I Love Them
Bamboo Microfibre Cloths are a lot of levels up compared to regular ones because they are not made from synthetic fibres. They are 100% bamboo! As well, these are undyed, and therefore there is a smaller footprint in their production. Good for us and good for the environment. 🙂
Regular cloths move things around from surface to another, so cross contamination is always a problem.
Microfibre cloths are structured in such a way that they actually pick up the contaminants.
By simply rinsing them in warm soapy water, they are ready to go again. I have to say that these wash out better than any other microfibre cloths that I have used. The only thing that seems to stain them is turmeric – and, well, that stains fingers, boards and stainless steel.

How to use Bamboo Microfibre Cloths
Bamboo Microfibre Cloths work well with just water – cleaning products are not actually required. (Another win for the environment – and your budget).
You can “wet dust” by wetting and squeezing your cloth out well. Wipe the surface, and follow it with a dry Bamboo Microfibre Cloth.
- Use a dry Bamboo Microfibre Cloth to sop up a spill – you will witness its superpowers at soaking things up
- General cleaning can be done using a dry cloth and a mister – simply spraying some water on the oven door before wiping it over with the cloth
- Mix up warm water with a few drops of essential oils, and use these to clean your place
- TOP TIP: keep your cloths for different areas – write on the label, or pin a coloured ribbon on it. For example, green for kitchen, blue for bathroom, pink for floors
Caring for your Microfibre Cloths
Simply wash them regularly in a warm wash.
Take care NOT to add fabric softeners as these will stop your cloth from working properly.
Do NOT tumble dry.
