Ever clean your counters or stainless appliances, only to see unsightly streaks re-appear right away? Ditch the paper towels and go with a more eco-friendly and efficient towel called the Zap cloth! These seem to be meant for shining cars, but honestly does a nice job inside the home polishing multiple surfaces!
Heads up: This post is not sponsored. I have been personally been using Zap cloths for several years now and tell everyone I can about how well they work! They happen to be part of my daily cleaning routine and one of my must-have cleaning supplies.
Zap cloths can make surfaces shine by just using water… it’s like magic. ✨
If you have a surface that’s clean but maybe has streaks or watermarks, this cloth shines with just water. Simply wet it, wring it out, and wipe any surface. When I clean my house, I use this cloth as the last step to make everything shiny afterward!
Don’t let the basic appearance fool you. These 16×16 inch microfiber car cloths can be used over and over again to clean your dirtiest surfaces leaving them streakless, spotless, and lint-free. At around $4 each, these are such a smart alternative to paper towels and will pay for themselves very quickly!
Here are the best spots around the house I like to use Zap microfiber car cloths!
Zap cloths easily pick up dust and debris on windows and window sills making it such a versatile cleaning tool to keep in your home. They clean up smudges or fingerprints instantly just with water!
My dogs make nose smudges on this window all day and the Zap cloth easily wipes my windows clean.
Give the mirror a wipe-down as well for a clear reflection and spotless surface. You won’t believe how great it cleans on mirrors. It’s amazing. All those pesky watermarks disappear instantly.
3. Bathroom and kitchen countertops
Sometimes counters can look cloudy and smudged after cleaning. I have both granite and quartzite counters throughout my home, and Zap cloths do an awesome job of making them look polished and perfect. The shine is brilliant!
4. Glass Showers
Our new glass shower is gorgeous but is sometimes hard to keep clean. After cleaning the shower, I will go back over it with my Zap cloth and it looks super shiny. In between cleanings, we use a small squeegee to keep the water spots to a minimum.
6. Kitchen and bathroom fixtures
In the bathroom, Zap cloths leave chrome and other metal accents gleaming making it perfect to wipe down faucets and fixtures.
7. Glasses and electronics
Zap Cloths feel like a giant version of the mini soft cloths you’d use to clean smudges off of reading glasses, making them also handy for that use. I use them to safely wipe down my computer screen too.
With all the cost savings and the hassle-free nature of this product, our Hip2Save team loves them!
Here’s what Collin’s sister Bryn has to say about her Zap cloths:
Even after several years of use & abuse, I still use my Zap cloth several times per week to clean all my stainless steel appliances in my kitchen. I love that I literally just add a little water to the cloth and it magically erases all signs of fingerprints and grime. I also frequently use these cloths to clean my eyeglasses – they are seriously like magic!
How to clean Zap cleaning cloths for continued use:
- Machine wash with laundry detergent, or hand wash with dish soap in warm water.
- Using bleach will shorten the life of your cloths.
- Also, do not use fabric softener. Fabric softener leaves a film on the cloth and decreases its effectiveness.
- Hang to dry for the best results.
