Dust cloths come in a variety of shapes, sizes, textures, and qualities. When it comes to eliminating dust and dirt, or absorbing liquid, it is important to choose a quality cloth that will hold up. It is important to find dust cloths that don’t push around the dust or the liquid, but rather trap the dust or liquid and lock it in to the cloth. You also want to ensure the cloth is a quality product that won’t scratch your surfaces. In this instance, choose a soft, fluffy product. For other hard surfaces and glass, you want to choose less absorbent, flatweave cloths. There are a variety of types and brands of dust cloths. We set out to test an assortment of them to see which were the best. In order to prescribe our recommendations, we tested them among a few testing categories, like absorbency, quality, and multi-use.
