{Honest Review} e-auto Glass and Chrome Cloth (from e-cloth)

Disclosure: I received this product for free from e-cloth. I was not compensated in any other way for this review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

I don’t know about you, but cleaning is one of my LEAST favorite tasks. I’d seriously do just about anything else first. And cleaning the car is definitely low on my priority list. Fortunately, I have a husband who prides himself on clean cars and enjoys taking care of that type of thing. Even still, it’s hard to find the time to clean the cars as often as he’d like (or as often as we should), so when I had the opportunity to try the e-auto Glass and Chrome Cloth by e-cloth, I jumped at the chance. If there’s a product out there that will make this task just a bit easier (and go more quickly), I’m all for it!

The cloth arrived very quickly, and in great shape. I immediately tore open the packaging so I could check it out!  I love getting mail.

The cloth was slightly different than what I expected.  For some reason, I was thinking it would be more like a towel, but it wasn’t.  It was thin (more like a t-shirt thickness) and had a slightly ribbed or grippy texture on one side. The other side was smooth. I was fairly skeptical that it would work with just a wet surface, so I was anxious to put it to the test.

I’m sorry to say I didn’t take any before/after pictures, but believe me- this cloth WORKS!! After I was done wiping down the car chrome, I brought it inside and used it to clean my bathroom faucets and mirror. I always have the hardest time getting those faucets shiny, but the cloth did the trick! It even cleaned the chrome temperature control nozzle in my shower (which was pretty sad and covered with water spots and scum). I didn’t even have to use that much elbow grease- certainly no more than I normally used when cleaning. Add to that the added benefit of not having to spray any cleaners (hello, money saving! And no breathing in that stuff!), and I’m sold. I have safely stashed my e-cloth into the cleaning drawer, and I will be pulling it out next time we have to clean cars or anything else shiny (or glass) in the house. I love that this cloth is so multi-purpose… you definitely get your money’s worth!

{DIY} Silver Polish

I don’t really have a lot of silver in my house.  In fact, I have very, very little.  Just my good serving utensils and some of the stuff from my wedding (like my cake server and cake knife).  Since I have so little silver, I really hated the idea of having to buy a whole container of silver polish.  It seemed like such a waste.  So I put it off.  And put it off again.  I kept putting it off, mainly because I didn’t want to clean my silver, but also because I didn’t have the cleaner (and never really thought to buy it when I was at the store).

Fast forward many years, and now I’ve got my Young Living Essential Oils.  I was watching some morning show while on maternity leave and the guest said lemon juice could be used to polish silver.  What a neat idea!  I didn’t have any lemon juice, but I did have my Lemon Oil…maybe that would work just as well.

And it DID WORK!  See for yourself:

My wedding cake server…before and after polishing! Definitely is not “non-tarnish” as the sticker promised!

I was amazed.  And it was oh so easy.  Now I’m proud to have my wedding silver prominently displayed in my house.

Want to know how to do it?  It’s not hard AT ALL.  All you need is Lemon Essential Oil, a cotton ball, and a paper towel (or soft cloth).  Put a drop of Lemon EO on the cotton ball and wipe at the tarnish until it is gone.  Then buff with the paper towel or cloth.  Ta-da!  That’s it.  No hard elbow grease required- I promise!

I recently shared this “recipe” with my other oily friends in our Chemical Free Cleaning with Young Living class on Facebook.  The image from the class is below, for your convenience!  Feel free to share or pin, and definitely check out our Facebook class for other great recipes using your Young Living Essential Oils!
