THE SIMPLY HER TEAM TESTED THESE CLEANING PRODUCTS AND GADGETS TO FIND THE BEST ONES, NOT JUST FOR ANNUAL SPRING CLEANING, BUT ALL YEAR ROUND TOO.
1 BEST SPONGE CLOTH Vileda All-purpose Cloth $3.40, from Cold Storage This is thin yet absorbent, easy to hold, and got into both large and tight spaces well.
2 MOST ABSORBENT SPONGE CLOTH Scotch-brite Sponge Cloth $3.30 (pack of two), from major supermarkets Thick and comfortable, it soaked up spills readily and felt like a glove when cleaning large surfaces like cabinets and tabletops. 3 BEST MICROFIBRE CLOTH Nanosun Microfibre Cloth $8.99 (pack of two), from Giant Hypermart Smooth on one side and textured on the other, this is for liquids, grease or dust. It was absorbent and slid across surfaces, picking up dirt and crumbs in one sweep.
4 BEST DRY MICROFIBRE CLOTH Microfibre Kitchen Cloth $2, from Daiso This light and thin cloth didn’t leave streaks behind when used dry to polish windows, glass hobs and mirrors. 5 MOST VERSATILE MICROFIBRE CLOTH SET Staples Home Microfibre Cloths $2.90 (pack of four), from John Little There’s a cloth for every task here, in a different colour. The thin and fine ones are best for picking dust off study tables, and drying up damp windows. The thicker ones are great as kitchen cloths, for cleaning out grease and wiping up spills.
