Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.


1:5:10:018 Tip: Microfiber cleaning cloths are a great way to clean up fine dust particles. The design of the fiber picks up and holds dust until the cloth is washed. I am amazed that they haven’t caught on better than they have. If you have trouble finding them, you may have to look in the automotive care section, but they can be used to clean just about any hard surface. Once they are dirty then can be washed out and reused. Never wash them with fabric softener, or a chlorine bleach, and it seems better to use a liquid laundry detergent and not a powder.

That’s my 1:5:10:365 tip for today. Tomorrow we will be using the electricity monitoring meter I encouraged you to purchase in tip :005 to track those hidden energy wasters. Following through with tomorrow’s tip can save a ton of energy and money on your monthly bill.


Additional Information

I have found the microfiber cleaning cloths at Costco for about $10 for a pack of 20 in the automotive section. I am also hearing good things about the Scotch Brite – microfiber cleaning cloths.

If you know of other sources or have further tips for their use – post a comment.
