Antimicrobial Silver Cleaning Cloths: Are They Worth the Cost?
Would you pay $12 for a silver-impregnated antimicrobial cleaning cloth to help keep the touch surfaces in your home germ-free?
Or would you rather spray an old wash rag or other inexpensive cleaning cloth with a few pennies worth of colloidal silver, and get the same dramatic germ-killing benefits?
I’m not Scottish. But I am cheap. Here are my thoughts on the matter…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
A North Carolina man has invented an antimicrobial cleaning cloth, designed for sanitizing household surfaces (such as cutting boards, computer keyboards, kitchen and bathroom countertops, and more) with a single wipe.
These antimicrobial silver cleaning cloths cost $11.99 apiece. I know, because I bought one. After paying postage, it was $15.98.
Why pay such a high price for a simple cotton cleaning cloth? It’s because they’re infused with germ-busting silver ions.
The manufacturer says all you have to do is moisten the cloth and wipe down any surface you want to sanitize. And voila! The surface becomes germ-free, thanks to the silver ions embedded in the cotton cloth.
Quite interesting, yes?
A Cheaper Alternative
Then I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond and purchased a package of 10 microfiber cleaning cloths for only $9.99. Yes, ten nice, large microfiber cleaning cloths for just under a dollar apiece.
Now before I quit work each day, I very lightly spray one of my microfiber cleaning cloths with a little bit of colloidal silver, and use it to wipe down my keyboard, mouse, screen and desktop.
On the other hand, my wife simply sprays an old wash rag with a bit of colloidal silver, and uses it to wipe down her kitchen and bathroom touch surfaces such as countertops, cutting boards, faucets, handles, etc.
Our cost: About a dollar for the cleaning cloth (or virtually free if you use an old wash rag), plus a few pennies at most for the colloidal silver each time we spray a cleaning rag with it.
Of course, we make our own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge. So we only pay about 36 cents a quart for colloidal silver rather than paying $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver in health food stores.
And that means we can use colloidal silver around the house for dozens upon dozens of germ-kiling, super-sanitizing purposes, as you’ll see in just a minute.
What’s Your ‘Druther?
Now, you might say you’d rather spend the big bucks on the silver-impregnated cleaning cloth, for the sake of convenience. (And if that’s the case, here’s their link.)
After all, it’s at least a little bit more convenient to just have the cleaning cloth ready-to-go with the silver already embedded in it, and not have to spray the cloth with colloidal silver each time you want to use it for disinfectant purposes.
But for me, the price difference is just too much. Considering the money, I’d rather just spray a simple, inexpensive cleaning cloth with a few pennies worth of colloidal silver whenever I want to use it for disinfectant purposes.
Make Your Own Colloidal Silver For Pennies
Colloidal silver can be purchased at just about any local health food store, or through a number of online sources including Amazon.com.
However, it’s quite literally one of the most expensive and heavily marked-up natural supplements in existence.
Health food store owners, for example, often charge as much as $20-$30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. Yet the cost to manufacture four ounces of colloidal silver is about 12 cents. Yes, I said twelve cents.
O course, people are willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver, since it’s safe and natural, and works so well against germs, mold, fungus, and even viruses.
there’s no need to pay such exorbitant prices for colloidal silver, when you
can make your own, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own
home, for about 36 cents a quart.
If you’re interested in learning how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver at home, for about 36 cents a quart, here are some additional short articles you might want to take a look at:
Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another great article on colloidal silver….
Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
