    How we test

    Our assessment is based on how well the cleaners perform at removing greasy dirt from a ceramic tile with a mechanical arm. Cleanliness is assessed by measuring reflectance before and after cleaning. The test is repeated 8 times and the results averaged.

    Microfibre is the trick

    Pros

    Quality microfibre mops and cloths are designed to just use water. I buy Norwex or Enjo - these are both great brands for quality and environmentally friendly production.
    Many of the cheaper microfibre products contain toxic dyes, formaldehyde in their composition and toxic waste water in their production process. The dollar savings for these companies are most important and no consideration for the environment is taken into account. Many companies outwardly promote their environmental policies and are unaware of the negative impact the poor quality cloths they use are creating.

    Cons

    Only the initial cost outlay - but there are often good specials to be had.

    Water and Sugar Soap

    Pros

    Cheap and effective. Sugar soap is my go-to cleaner of all time. It works great as a painting prep, is non-abrasive, and works for me on all surfaces including the floor.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Recommend it?
