Works For Me Wednesday

Well, it's that time again...time to share something I've found that "Works for Me" that I think might just "Work for You!" And I've been saving up some things for just such an occasion!

Today, it's going to be all about this little miracle worker! I just so happen to follow (when I'm being good) the Flylady, and this means that throughout my day, I am drying out my kitchen keep it all shiny and pretty. However, I have a rather old stainless steel sink whose finish has been destroyed, and I was having difficulty finding something to dry it with that would leave it pretty and shiny rather than streaky. Enter the Gleen Cloth! Now I found this little baby at my local H.E.B. grocery store, but if you can't find it in your local grocery, just click the link and find out how to get your own. I keep one folded on the edge of my sink, and I use it to dry out my sink whenever I'm finished using it for the time being. It leaves my sink streak free and shiny!

Now, to add to the fabulousness of this cloth, I have discovered that if I dampen it slightly I can dust my computer and television screens with it safely and, again, streak-free. I also use it to wipe down all of my stainless steel appliances. I get it slightly more wet for this job, but again, it does a beautiful job without having to use any cleaners at all. I also keep one hanging in my bathroom shower and when I'm finished with my shower I quickly use it to wipe down the walls of the shower and I never have to scrub soap scum off of them! The walls are clean and shiny, and again, I don't have to use any type of cleaner on them at all.

I even use it to clean windows and bathroom mirrors.....whenever I actually get around to cleaning windows and bathroom mirrors, lol.

Now, I happen to have about 5 of these little wonders. As I said, I keep one on the kitchen sink and one hanging in the bathroom shower. Every evening as I clean up the kitchen and shine my sink, I put the cloth in the laundry and put a fresh one on the sink for the next day.....yes, you can wash these little babies in the washing machine! I only change out the one in the bathroom about once a week, because it doesn't really get dirty--just wet, and it's hanging up so it can dry well between uses.

So there you have it. One of my most favoritest cleaning tools in the whole wide world! Let me know if you try one out for yourself...and then head on over to Rocks in My Dryer for more "Works for Me Wednesday" !

Thanks for the info. I have done Flylady in the past. Though I no longer get the e-mail reminders I have applied many principles to my life, though I am thinking a refresher course might be needed!
