Today I was working on the website and decided to make ordering a bit more simple by adding more items as packs to the streak free microfiber cleaning cloths. You can still order individual or you can order in packs of 10, 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 500 and 1000 packs.
Also, I'm adding some new products to the inventory to see how well they will sell. They are microfiber car care and microfiber mops to start. Check them out.
Who got a tablet for Christmas this year raise your hands. Let's see, I did, my kids did and my fiance did too. Of course I got the most powerful tablet because I was real good this year. Wow that's 4 new tablets we introduced into the family circle this year.
I'm not one to rush off to get the latest gadgets when they first hit the store shelves. As a matter of fact, we waited a long time to get our tablets but I've used them in the stores and played with a friends tablet a few times.
The one thing I noticed right off the bat is how dirty these tablets get just sliding your fingers across the slick screen for a few minutes. And as you can imagine, my mind went into marketing mode. How can I get the awesome streak free cloth into the homes of every person in the world who owns a tablet. Well that would take tons of marketing dollars so for now I will write about my experience and maybe this blog post will get shared among the blogosphere and spread the word for me. Hey I can hope and dream.
Well I can tell you that since we got our tablets and we use them quite a bit. Kids use their tablet to take selfies of themselves and post them on facebook for their friends to laugh at. I use mine to "research" and process orders. Take it from me, you will want to have some streak free cleaning cloths just for cleaning your tablet...and your kids tablets....and your spouse's tablet too.
So I was curious while I was working on my website doing some searches on "streak free cloths" just to see who was selling them online, boy was I shocked. 5 years ago when I first started selling these amazing cleaning cloths online there was only a handful of website selling them, now there are over 25+ selling the "streak free microfiber cleaning cloths", 25!
No wonder I hear from customers that they are so confused as to who to buy from, what's the cost, etc., because there are so many website that have popped up that offer streak free cloths, it's gotten over saturated. Well, you know what they say, offer a great product and there will be imitators.
I just received a call while I was writing this article from a customer who was trying to figure out who she ordered from before, then when she found out they jacked their prices up she didn't want to buy from them so she found me and loved that I was offering the streak free cloths for so cheap...she thought it was a sales price but I explained to her it's not a sales price, these prices are permanent.
Everybody who is selling the streak free cloths are selling them the same way, 1 for..., 2 for... 6 for... 30 for...,100 for $125 etc. I broke away from the pack and now I'm selling them for $1 and $1.25 each, order as much as you want. I wanted to make the price cheap enough so that you don't have to worry about buying them whenever you need some. Just order as little or as much as you want. You don't have to hang onto that one cloth you've been using for the last month just to save money, toss it and get a new fresh one every week for your house cleaning.
So, back to my research. I know this isn't going to gain me any brownie points in the "streak free" web world but I'm going to list all the website that sell streak free cloths right here with a link to their site, just so you can see for yourself. As a matter of fact, linking from my website to my "competition" is going to give them a little "google juice" (a term used in the internet marketing world).
OK, here is the list and they are not in any special order, I just added them as I came across them. These are just the ones listed when I did a search for "streak free cloth", who knows what other search terms will bring up more...I don't know, but I will find out.
For all you aquarium enthusiast out there who spends hours cleaning your fresh and saltwater aquariums month after month and can't quite get your tank streak free. Well you haven't tried our amazing streak free aquarium cleaning cloth yet. I know the commitment it takes to do this hobby as well as the expense, especially if you have a reef aquarium, it's sooo beautiful and I truly miss mine.
I had to sell it because 1) I just didn't have the time to devote to keeping it clean, 2) I really didn't know how to take care of a reef aquarium 3) It got too expensive replacing fish, corals that die.
I was just talking to my fiance last night about how I miss my saltwater aquarium and her reaction was "We have one of the largest aquariums in the world in our backdoor, you can just go there. She was referring to the Georgia Aquarium, which is in Atlanta, GA and she is right. It's an amazing place to go get my fix. Wonder how they clean all that glass??? Hmmmm
Anyways, as I was saying, when I did have my 75 gallon saltwater aquarium and did my once a month cleaning, I used 3 streak free cloths. One was to wipe off all the salt water that spilled over onto the glass when I was splashing around in there, a second one to wipe off the glass with fresh clean water and a third one to wipe the glass dry and to a streak free polish.
After I was done and the water had settled I was so proud of the way my tank looked. I would come home from work and sit in front of my aquarium and just stared at it for at least 30 minutes, it was my way of decompressing from work. I miss that part a lot.
So if you haven't tried one of these amazing streak free cloths to clean your aquarium, you need too. You will discover how amazing these cloths are at getting your tank spotless and they are safe on your glass and very effective. Try some today!

_Here are some other uses for the ingredients used to make the cleaners in this instructable:
_If you've burned food to a pan, or if you've made yourself a nice hardened, stuck-on food mess along with your dinner, there's an easy way to get it out.
Add about 1/4 cup baking soda to a couple of cups of water in your pan and bring to a boil on the stove for 5-10 minutes. While this is going, it helps to scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
After you take it off the heat, give it a good scrub. You should have a nice clean pan! If not, rinse and repeat with a little more baking soda. This will also help remove stains for things like tomato sauces.
_This is very simple - just baking soda and white vinegar. You can also use lemon juice if you have that on hand! This works best on drains that are running very slow, but not those with standing water. If your problem is soap scum or other build up, this will break it up and get things moving again. It also works as a good deodorizer for kitchen drains.
Shake a bit of baking soda over the drain - about 1/4 of a cup or so. Push it into and around the drain, and then pour a bit of vinegar over it until you get a good bit of bubbling and the vinegar begins to pool in the sink.
Let this drain and set for 15-20 minutes and then flush with hot water. And as a bonus, you can also clean your sink with the little bit of mixture that'll be left at the top of the drain.
_This one is easy, though a little smelly - but don't worry, the smell goes away pretty quickly and you'll have nice clean windows!
What you'll need:
_Very simple to make and very, very cheap! Perfect for bathrooms or closets. Will last around a month.
The instructions for this will depend on the type of gelatin or pectin you use.
What you'll need:
Check the strength of the smell at this time and add more oil if necessary. This will firm up at room temperature, but if you want it to set quicker you can place it in the fridge.
