CHOICE tested 10 microfibre cloths, ranging in price from $3.60 to $9 per pack, with a couple coming in a pack of three. Our results found they can clean most surfaces without chemicals. However, if you use them for a major clean, don't throw away all your chemical cleaners as the build-up of stubborn residues may be difficult to remove with a microfibre cloth and water alone.

We test their cleaning ability on:

  • Kitchen
  • Bathroom
  • Dusting
  • Mirror and
  • Stainless steel surfaces

Please note: this information was current as of December 2009 but is still a useful guide to today's market.
