What Houzz contributors are saying:
For many, including Debra Johnson, a home-cleaning expert for the housekeeping company Merry Maids, microfiber cloths are the weapon of choice against water spotting and buildup and are prized for their ability to get into hard-to-reach places, such as beneath door handles or in tight corners.After each use, the experts advise, wring the cloths out tightly, and launder them at least once a week.Shop for cleaning supplies on Houzz
