There are very few things in life which offer immediate satisfaction. And I am always in search of some sort of immediate satisfaction whether it be shiny hair, the perfect iPod playlist or exercise shoes that don’t require a break-in period. Rarely, I come across something that takes very little effort with HUGE payoff. However, I have found one!
Enter…the micro fiber towel.
Ladies and gents…these things rock! They are a jack-of-all-trades, a true multi-purpose tool, a must-have for your cleaning closet. I am so “over the moon” about these things it’s pathetic.
Here are the ones I use. They’re cheap, people. Seriously cheap. You get a total of 40 cloths,4 different colors of towels, which you can assign to different uses. And they come in pink! Cute, huh? And, yes. I know that they come from a home shopping channel but get past the glitzy fake diamante jewelry and you could be the owner of a true gem!
I use these little babies everywhere. For household helpers they work as dish rags, window cleaners, dust rags, spill-cleaner-uppers, polishing cloths, dirty hands and face wiper-offers. I clean my car with these rags and wipe down my outside furniture. All you have to do is get them damp with plain tap water and they clean just as well as with chemicals. Now, obviously if you have some serious “dirty” going on you might consider adding some bleach to that water but that is clearly between you and yours. I don’t judge.
Okay…so this next suggested use is where it gets a little crazy. I use the micro fiber towels to dry my face and hair after I shower! They feel so much better than the standard old damp towel. And quite honestly, I need the security of knowing that my pink micro fiber towels have been unsullied. Here’s why…in the interest of being eco-friendly, I reuse my bath towels a couple of times before I wash it. I hang it on my shower door where it air dries until my next use. At least, that is my goal. But get this. My husband uses it! He uses my towel instead of getting his own. Some people could be saying, “So? What’s the problem with that? You’re married.” Sorry, but it seriously grosses me out. Kind of like sharing a glass of milk. Just shouldn’t be done.
So, anyway, 9 times out of 10 I get out of the shower, reach blindly for MY towel and it’s damp. Super gross. The last thing I want to do with that sick ol’ damp and dirty towel is to wipe my face with it. So, writhing in disgust, I hurriedly grab for my pink micro fiber towel and gently blot the dampness off my face. And then take a giant sigh of relief at the purity and cleanliness of it all.
Run and get these dandy little babies. You can find them in lots of different places at several price points. I love mine. You will love yours. Get some.
Love to all, Mindy
