SO easy to wash diapers.
I am sadly out of my cloth diapers and have considered buying more. My youngest is 25. I love my micro fiber cloths. To keep from getting the fibers on your windows, the micro fiber cloths need to be washed separately from anything. Pretty much everything sticks to them.
Wash microfiber cloth with sheets and they'll be fine.

So we had our windows tinted a couple of weeks ago and the installer was washing the inside windows with some spray stuff and I looked at him like is that stuff OK if it gets on the carpet, furniture, etc....so he says "Don't worry about what I'm using...It's Johnson's baby shampoo and water...never streaks". The windows turned out awesome (and it's a lot cooler inside) so I washed all the exterior windows at my industrial building and I cannot believe how well it worked. Didn't even rinse, just sprayed on, squeegeed off, and shazam, beautiful clean windows.

Doesn't anyone else use the rubber blade on the squeegee? I have two of them; a short one for small windows and a 16 inch one for my 3 X 8 foot patio window. (Was a door in a previous life.) The squeegee removes 99% of the water. Then I use a small towel to clean up the drips around the edges and across the bottom. Washing windows is so fast and easy this way. I think the hardware store is where you go for a squeegee. My small one is made by Tupperware, but I don't think they make them anymore.
We use a squeegee on the glass shower doors every time we shower. Takes no time and helps with the eventual clouding from the water.

Me too! My bathtub surround is always clean because I always squeegee it and then wipe down with a towel.
And my bathroom sink is always clean because I swish a little water around the sink when I'm through washing my hands, then wipe my hands and wipe the sink.

sheebakitty, got my cloths in the mail today and tried one out on kitchen sink window and main bath mirror.
THEY WORK, it feels kink of rubbery but sure did as stated. Am soaking 2 in a basin of water with a little castile soap, one will stay on main floor and other will go upstairs, also will have one in the garage. Washed my van at home Saturday and the windows need a little help to get rid of hard water spots.

Thank you for posting the link and their super fast delivery.
