    Good quality, useful cleaning cloth

    posted by howhardcanitbe on 11/10/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I received 6 cloths in three pastel-y colours: pale blue, pale pink, and pale green. (The colours DX shows for the item description are red, yellow, and blue - more primary colours.) The 14cm x 17cm (5.5" x 6.75") cloths are all individually packaged in li...
    Cons:
    The cloths are a bit small for cleaning a tv screen or a computer monitor (unless you have small hands). I can buy larger micr...

    Pros:

    Cons:
    - the on/off slide switch was a bit stiff on a couple of the lights that I received, but not difficult to work at all - I have ...
