Boy It sure pays to upgrade our cleaning tools/supplies doesnt it

I have been slowly upgrading my cleaning supplies and tools over the last 2 years.
I cant not believe how much trouble and chemicals I was going through.

Each time I buy a new cleaning item, I clean my old way first.
Each and every time the new product cleaned what was left.

This happened with:
My Dyson
My new steam mop with micro cover
My various types of micro fibers

I am using WAY less chemicals and saving so much time now.
Thank you for everyone posting your tips and sharing! I am learning so much here!!!

I hear ya!

Back in 2003 I bought a Dyson so I wouldn't have to keep lugging the Hoover up and down the stairs. I figured the Hoover on one floor, the Dyson on the other.

One pass of the Dyson and the Hoover went out the door. So then I carried the Dyson up and down the stairs!

Now I have the steam cleaning machine, and all those mops and cleaning solutions are sitting idle in the basement.

I know what you mean! After reading all the praises of microfiber cloths, I went out and bought a bunch. I washed the car and dried it with a big microfiber towel. I was amazed--worked much, much, much better and faster than the old cotton t-shirt I had used. It absorbed all the water easily--and shined the windows. I just eliminated the squeege/windex step!

davisgard, you might like the heavy duty super sticky ones from hagco for the tire/rim area. When you get them they dont look like regular microfiber.
None of their micros are like all these others I have bought.
They are sticky etc and they are cheap.
My hubby said it took stuff off that tires, easily, that he had not been able to scrub off with a brush even.
I need to give my hubby one of the gen purpose ones for drying now :)

toile,
Hagco sure has some nice mops but where do they sell these things?

Hagco is open to us the public now.
Plus we get to pay the same low prices too!
Cool ha?
I wish I had gotten the mops instead of buying the micrp cloths from HSN.
Not to go on and on but NO clothes I have used are anything like the Hagco ones.
Plus I'm paying a buck for cloths that are way marked up elsewhere.
If you want the catalog they can email you one, then you get a hard copy one with your first order.

But how do you order? The website doesn't seem to be set up as an online store. Are there physical stores somewhere?

No Hagco is basically set up like a distributor but they are letting us have access.
Just call them and they will email you the catalog and price sheet.
