      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Strong cloths, good size, absorb well.

      I have bought these cloths quite a few times in the past because I find they are really cheap to buy and they are good value cloths for the price. Also the amount of cloths is good for the price.

      The cloths come in a transparent plastic wrapper with the name clearly on the front. No fancy design. The cloths are kind of a checked print in blue and kind of cream colour. They are also nicely stacked in the packet and easy to take from the packet too. I tend to open the packet and place the cloths in a drawer in my kitchen and they are handy to just grab one when I need a clean cloth.

      They are quite strong cloths can withstand most cleaning jobs around my home. They are a good size and once wet, they are very comfortable to hold in the hands. The material is kind of thin but they aren't flimsy cloths like you may imagine them to be, I haven't had any problems with them while cleaning etc around my home.

      I use them wet and dry, when wet I use them for wiping my work surfaces in my kitchen and use them to clean tiles, cooker, marble chopping board and any area in my kitchen I like to use a kitchen spray cleaner. I just wipe over the surfaces with the cloth and it cleans them well. The fabric is really soft and doesn't scratch or mark my surfaces. I can wring them out easily too and they don't rip when wringing water out of them like you may imagine they may rip or tear. They do tear and rip when used after a day or 2 and then I just throw them in my recycle bin. I have soaked them in a solution of washing up liquid and hot water at the end of the day and left them to soak overnight. The next morning they are ready to be used again and clean. I find they don't last more than a couple of days even when soaked etc.

      I like to use them dry when I want to mop up any spillages I have on my surfaces, I find they absorb liquid really well, the cloths just mop up the liquid really well and I am very happy with the way these work for spillages. I also sometimes use them for buffing my taps after I have cleaned them, they buff them really well and dry they don't scratch the taps or mark them at all.

      These are extremely cheap to buy and they cost just 36p, for this price you get 10 cloths in the packet. A really good amount for this cheap price and they are worth every penny spent. The quality of the cloths is a really good one and super value for money.

      My hubby also uses these for cleaning things in the garage when he has been either making a mess while tinkering in his cave or wants to wipe oil or even petrol from his hands when he has been using petrol to fill our petrol lawnmower.

      My grandchildren and I have also used these cloths for material for our craft days when we are wanting a cloth material to make things they want to make. My little granddaughter seems to like the feel of these cloths when she is sticking them onto cardboard, she tends to grab my hand and makes me cut some of the cloth for her to use. I think the cloths are really useful for craft days and are cheap enough to use on these kind of days for the little ones.

      I've used them to clean my garden furniture, for cleaning my grandchildren's outdoor toys such as the slide, sandpit, playhouse and swing and lots of other outdoor toys which can get dirty in the summer time because of the rain etc.

      I cannot fault these cloths from the Smartprice range from Asda, they are super cloths and I highly do recommend them for anyone wanting to buy cloths which can withstand the test of time being such cheap cloths.

      Can be used to clean all around the home and outdoors, I will continue to buy them in the future because I think they are really good ones and so affordable for any budget in my opinion.

      Also on Ciao under my username pinky50.

      I give them 5 stars.
      Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Thanks for Reading :)

      I can be a bit of a cleaning freak at times, and living in a house with a family of five means a house that needs that bit more looking after and cleaning. When it comes to cleaning, you don't need any fancy looking cleaning cloths or sponges, you just need some that are made from good standard quality materials that are basic and do the job therefore making the Asda smart price cloths ideal.

      Having a tight budget to begin with means that I have to cut back on certain unnecessary items on my shopping list, or opt for replacing expensive brands with cheaper inexpensive brands; which is why the Asda smart price cleaning cloths were and still are the ideal cleaning cloth used for my daily cleaning duties.


      ==PRICE==

      I purchased Asda smart price cleaning cloths from the cleaning supplies aisle at my local Asda. Priced at only 36p per pack means a great bargain in my book, it comes in a pack of ten which works out as 3.6p per cloth. This price is brilliant, making it a lot cheaper than the other more expensive branded cleaning cloths that basically do exactly the same thing.


      ==PACKAGING==


      The cloths come enclosed in plastic packaging, the package has a very simplistic design which is what I have come to expect from Asda's smart price brand. The front of the packaging has a white and green colour scheme similar to all other smart price products by Asda, and has an image of small bucket printed on the front as well as the name of the product in big bold text. The packaging is transparent, which is great as you can clearly see the colour and thickness of the cloths.


      ==VERDICT==


      The cloths themselves are in my opinion just as good as the more expensive branded cloths on the market. They have good thickness for cleaning and scrubbing away dust and dirt, and the fact that they are made from good absorbent material make them great for cleaning wet spillages. They are all purpose cloths so you can use them for almost any house hold cleaning task, cleaning kitchen surfaces, windowsills, scrubbing bath tubs and cleaning the sink are just some of the tasks I use them for. The thickness really makes these highly durable and I found them strong enough to clean away hard to remove thick dirt's and stains.


      I also found they last relatively long, I could reuse a single cloth a number of times before throwing replacing. Each cloth is easy to wash clean, all I had to do was rinse them is warm water with fairy liquid and the dirt would visibly wash away. However due to being so inexpensive it really is no trouble when one becomes too dirty to wash, as each pack comes with ten cloths there are more than enough to last me a good few months before I have to purchase another pack.


      ==CONCLUSION==


      Overall I would recommend these for all households as they are strong, durable, thick and generally good quality cleaning cloths that are surprisingly long lasting. For the price it is a great bargain and performs just as well if not better than most other well known branded cloths.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great price and ok quality

        At the minute I am going though a real cost cutting phase, trying to buy non branded products and substitute with cheaper supermarket alternatives. That is when I spotted these All Purpose cloths from the Asda Smart Price Range.

        The price is around £0.36 which when you work it out that's less than 4p a cloth. I have always found that my two local Asda's always have plenty of these in stock.

        In comes in a flat pack which the Asda Smart Price Logo on, each pack contains 10 cloths. The cloths are stated as multi purpose and have that standard look of blue and white lines.

        The cloths are really quite thin and I find that you have to either scrunch them up or fold a few times to give the cloth a nice, usable thickness. A couple of times, the clothes have ripped, especially when scrubbing hard so I have had to dispose of them however for just wiping around, they are fine. I tend to use them for cleaning the bathroom as I through them away after using.

        The cloths don't have a rough feel to them or leave any abrasive marks when using, I found they are ideal for cleaning the windows (although I have to be careful how much Windolene I use; because they are thin, if I apply too much, it gets all over my hands!).

        I always take a couple of packs of these every year down to our static caravan, and they really have proved to be Multi-Purpose; I have used them for cleaning bathrooms, the kitchen, the floor, the exterior of the caravan and the windows and apart from the odd tear, they have never let me down!

        I would only give them 4 out of 5 stars, they are really cheap and a good substitute.

        Thanks for reading.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Something I find useful but not for everyone

        This is a review of Asda Smartprice Multi Purpose Cloths which I always keep a pack of in the cleaning cupboard. They are the blue and white check ones that you see everywhere.

        Uses
        The main reason I have these are for use as disposable cleaning cloths and mainly use them for dirty jobs like cleaning toilets, bathrooms and anything gross like cat or baby sick from the carpet! I never reuse them once they have done the job they get chucked away.

        What are they like?
        Each cloth is folded down in the pack and when opened up they are approximately 30 cm square (I just got one and measured it to get those dimensions!!). The cloth is thin with a blue and white check pattern on it and will withstand getting wet without falling apart so the next step up from a quality kitchen roll in my opinion. You can scrub the carpet with them but after a while they start to fall apart and it is not uncommon for me to end up with a giant hole in one if I'm scrubbing a carpet. You can rinse out the cloth if cleaning non abrasive surfaces and it will survive the experience but I tend to throw away after use as they are not worth saving and certainly not worth attempting to wash.

        Price
        I think the packs are getting smaller with these cloths (as are the actual sizes of these cloths too)! The current price for a pack of ten is 36p which is a good price I think. I have seen them (or similar ones) in other shops on a roll but these are probably a little more expensive to buy.

        My thoughts
        For me, these are an essential item in my kitchen cupboard and one I turn to for dirty jobs (with rubber gloves too!). They are strong enough to cope with being wet and are good for scrubbing stains or cleaning sinks and can be disposed of afterwards. I have seen these in use in cafes for cleaning tables etc but I don't think I'd bother with this as you'd get through too many and I'd want something a bit more substantial.

        Final word
        They are cheap and not my husband's choice (he uses loads of Plenty kitchen roll when cleaning things) but I will continue to buy these for household cleaning. They go a bit soggy and horrible when wet and are really not worth using for cleaning pots and other things but make a good piece of cleaning kit and could be an ideal gift for a student leaving home as they can tackle a lot of different cleaning challenges!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An ok cheap cleaning cloth.

        When cleaning my bathroom i like to use cloths that i can use then throw away, rather than my recycled clothes ones that i can use then wash (yes i am that tight!), so when shopping i found a pack of cloths that looked strong enough to hold upto my scrubbing, but wouldn't break the bank if i used them once only!

        As i shop regularly in Asda, i do use a great many products from there "smartprice" range of goods, with varying degrees of success!

        Within this pack there are 10 cloths, which when opened are decent sized, but i did wonder how well they would last when i noticed how thin the material seemed to be.

        As i said i purchased these specifically for my bathroom, and found they cleaned really well on the smooth surfaces (ie the bathtub and the sink), but if used on any area that is lumpy (ie my tiles behing my bath) i found that the cloths started to shred, and left strings of blue material hanging from any rough areas (which there are plenty of in my house!).

        The cloths did however clean well, holding onto any dirt removed from the surfaces, and did rinse through so i could carry on cleaning with them, so even though i treated them as disposable cloths, i did manage to only use one for the entire bathroom.

        These were good enough for the purpose i purchased them, but as cloths that you would want to re-use, these would be useless, after a few rinse throughs they almost disintergrated down to nothing, though for the price was not too surprisng!

        For a pack these cost around 40p, which is a good £1.00 cheaper than others available!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Cheap cloths

          Cleaning cloths come in a variety of different forms and prices, that lead me to try out Value ranges, including these multi purpose cloths.

          --- Price and packaging ---
          The cloths are from Asda's Smartprice range, so you can imagine the packaging. It is a transparent plastic bag contains 10 cloths, a green and white box contains the normal product name and information. The transparency of the packaging means you can see the 10 blue and white cloths inside.

          The cloths are only available at Asda, but other stores do have their own value brands. The pack of 10 cloths currently cost 36p, so a little under 4p for each cloth.

          --- The cloths ---
          The cloths are white with a blue diamond crisscross pattern on them, they are roughly 30cm x 50cm in size. The thickness of these cloths is pretty rubbish, but with such a cheap cloth, what do you expect?

          After the cloths are popped under a running tap and the water Is squeezed out, the cloth is tiny in size and I find I have to fold it up a couple of times so it feels like it has a nice thickness. Without folding the cloth up it just feels like you are wiping each surface with your bare hands.

          That being said, once you have folding it up, it does handle cleaning jobs well, I like to use these for cleaning jobs I don't do very often, like cleaning cupboards out, cupboard doors and skirting boards. The cloths can handle a good scrub without showing signs of ripping or tearing when it has been folded no matter how much pressure is used when scrubbing, I haven't had any tear on me yet. I don't use them without them being folded up as I don't like feeling like I'm scrubbing with bare hands, but the thinness doesn't look as if it would withstand as much pressure.

          The price of each cloth being so cheap, I don't think it would matter if they tore anyway, as they are only chucked in the bin after use. I wouldn't say this kind of cloth is one to keep and try and wash to use it again as it is very thin, and not worth it in my opinion.

          I would recommend these cleaning cloths, when they are folded up they can withstand a good scrub without tearing and are very cheap. The thickness is very thin but I overcome that by folding them up.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Overall excellent value for money

          These cloths are excellent value for money and we have started to buy them now instead of the Sainsbury's equivalent, though really they are very much the same in quality. For just 36p you can get ten multi-purpose blue and white woven cloths which are intended for all jobs around the house and home.

          The cloths are not intended to be washed and then re-used as I don't think they would withstand this, however, after we have used them for general cleaning tasks around the home, we tend to soak them overnight in a bowl of diluted bleach and they can be used again the following day for similar tasks - eg, cleaning the kitchen worktops for example.

          The cloths are a good decent size in my opinion, and ten are packed together in a clear cellophane wrapping, which is is simple and easy to remove. Each cloth measures approximately 51cm x31cm (rough guess, I have not taken a tape measure to them). They are very strong, very durable and very versatile.

          They will not disintegrate or drop to bits easily and we use them for cleaning tasks in the kitchen, inlcuding worktops, and the bathroom, including bath, sink and toilet. They do not tear or come apart and the material seems strong (not stretchy). They are not particularly absorbent so therefore no good for mopping up spills, but as a first class cleaning tool they are excellent.

          They are a little stiff upon the first use but they soon become quite soft and pliable once they have been put in water. They rinse well and dry easily - we just drape ours over the taps and within about an hour or so it will have dried out as the cloth is quite lightweight.

          Hope this helps and definitely recommended.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great cleaning cloths

          I used to always get my cleaning cloths from the company I previously worked for and more often than not managed to get them for free so when I left and had to start buying them I didn't want to have to pay lots for them. One afternoon my dad called round with a very large roll of multi purpose cloth which lasted well over a year. When it ran out I was really disappointed that he couldn't get any more so I went to the supermarket to buy something similar as I much preferred using these cloths to the normal dishcloths I normally used.

          The Asda Smartprice Cloths looked exactly like I was looking for so I picked up a packet and popped it into my trolley. I don't really buy smartprice products as a rule but I thought that a cloth is a cloth so didn't see the point in paying a lot of money for them. The cloths come in a pack of ten and are priced at just 41 pence! The packaging is very plain and follows the smartprice theme which is just plain white and green and very basic indeed. The Asda logo is at the top of the packet with 10 cloths written underneath along with a picture of a bucket. Around the edges of the packet it is transparent so you can see the cloths.

          The cloths are blue and white in colour in a kind of diamond effect pattern all over. I did think as they were smartprice that the cloths would be a little thinner than what I was used to using but upon opening the packet I was quite surprised at the thickness of them and they were very similar to what I had been using. In fact I would say that they seem very similar in thickness to the branded cloths which are much more expensive. The cloths are multi purpose and therefore can be used for pretty much anything at all. I tend to use the cloths for cleaning the kitchen worktops, cooker and microwave mostly and sometimes in the bathroom but they can be used anywhere and for anything. The cloths are quite tough and can withstand some real scrubbing as I found when I was cleaning the car and getting the alloys clean! Not once did they rip which really did surprise me. When using the cloths I don't really use them more than once as I don't like having used cloths lying around and these really are cheap enough to use once and simply throw away. However, if you don't want to waste them as quickly they can be cleaned and stored to be used again if you wanted to.

          All in all I am very impressed with the smartprice cloths, they are a really good quality and are cheap as chips! Each cloth works out at just 4.1 pence so comparing that to branded cloths it is a real bargain! I really couldn't ask for any more from a multi purpose cloth and really highly recommend them.

          Thank you for reading my review.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Why pay more?

            This may not be the most thrilling of reviews I have written, however cloths are an everyday essential for every household to ensure a safe and clean environment to be lived in. Since becoming a student, I have had to grasp the independence of living and coping without the aid of parents, and cleaning is a new and exciting experience for me. Being on a fairly tight budget and not particularly wanting to spend money I have on brilliant cloths, I was happy to purchase Asda Smart Price ones as I felt they would still do the job, and they did not appear to be that different from any others I had seen in the past.

            A lot of people tend to look down on own branded products, especially when it is the very basic, value range one, but I have found that Asda's Smart Price range do often offer excellent value for money, and everything I have purchased has been of an adequate standard, so I was happy in purchasing these cloths. I picked them up from my local Asda, or you can have them delivered online through a delivered grocery shop. I purchased these clothes for a mere 41p which is hardly anything, and these works out at 4.1p a cloth as there are ten cloths in each packet. I think this is an excellent price, and much cheaper than other places you can purchase cloths similar to these.

            The packaging itself is a bit dull, and it is fairly obviously they are from a cheaper brand, however who is really all that bothered about what cloths you are using? This did not bother me at all, and due to the transparent plastic packaging, you are able to see the wipes inside. They looked fine to me, and they felt a decent thickness so I was happy to purchase them.

            When using them, I noticed that they were just like any other which you could sometimes pay up to double the price for. They looked the same, felt the same, and surprisingly performed as well as other competitors also. These are multi purpose cloths so they can be used for whatever you fancy, however I find them most useful when wiping down kitchen surfaces and tables, cleaning out the bathroom and general cleaning tasks throughout the house. They help to remove stubborn marks, and they are tough enough so they do not rip even when a lot of pressure is put on to them.

            Dependent on how frequently you use these will depend on how long the packet will last you. I personally only use them once at a time and then throw them out, and this is simply because they are inexpensive and I will just go out and buy another packet of these. However, these are strong cloths, therefore if you were to wash or disinfect these, they would still be fine to use for at least a few more times after this, meaning that they could last you a long time, however I choose not to do this.

            Overall, I am extremely pleased with these multi purpose cloths from Asda Smartprice, and they definitely turned out to be of much better quality than what I was expecting. They deliver everything you need in a cloth, so there is really not much point in paying more when you can get it all for just 4.1p a cloth. Fabulous product - 5 stars. Thanks for reading.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            a cheap buy to use when cleaning

            When I needed to buy some cleaning products a few months ago I came by this clean clothes, which seemed to be far more cheaper than the leading brand, and I did think surely they must do the same job! Turns out they do!

            They are only ASDA smartprice so the don't exude quality, but to be honest if you are just cleaning the floor, the sides, the sink, the bath or shower or anything really, its all you need. There are 10 cloths to a pack, which comes in a plastic wrap. They are blue with white lines on them, and can be easily ripped to create 2 from one (which is usually something I do).

            They are good to use wet or dry, with a number of products like most disinfectant sprays, which is what I use them for usually. They are quite thin, but thats to be expected because after using them I chuck them out anyway, because I don't reuse them. However, they could be reused as they don't get ruined easily, and can be easily washed clean.

            The cost --> These are a great purchase to add to your cleaning cupboard in my opinion, as they are only 36p a pack.

            Recommend!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            The smart choice!

            Cleaning cloths are not a particularly interesting subject, granted, but they are an essential product for me and I have been using these ASDA Smart Price All Purpose cloths daily for a number of years now.

            Personally, I think when it comes to things like cleaning cloths, there is little difference between brands, therefore I always choose the cheapest option where possible. On very rare occasions I have had to buy more expensive cloths when I haven't been able to get to the supermarket or my usual ones are out of stock. Other than the fact that the more expensive brands tend to be a bit thicker, I find the difference between them is extremely small.

            Being from ASDA's budget range the packaging of these is very plain. They simply come in a clear packet with a green outline of a bucket on the front. They do have a resealable tab on the back of the packet and I find this usually retains its stickiness until the last cloth is used. The packets actually used to be quite large, but when the recession hit I noticed that the packets got smaller, although whether the cloths inside did too I'm not sure. I actually like the small, square packet as it sits neatly in my cleaning cupboard and doesn't take up too much room.

            You get ten cloths in a packet and they have a blue and white criss-cross design to them. The measurements on the pack state that these are 51x30cm and I've always found them an adequate size for most day to day cleaning jobs around the house. It doesn't say on the pack what these are actually made of, but it's a soft, strongly woven material.

            The best thing about these (aside from the price) is their versatility. I use them in pretty much all rooms of my house for one thing or another and you can use them either wet or dry. The room I use them in most is the kitchen, as I find them ideal for wiping down work surfaces, the cooker top and cupboard doors and appliances. I use them in the bathroom to wash down the sink, bath and even around the toilet. In other rooms they are used to clean glass and I like that they don't leave fibres on the glass.

            I always make sure I use separate cloths for separate jobs to stop the spread of germs. Obviously all cloths in the pack look the same, so I tend to tie the cloth around the corresponding bottle - for example the kitchen cloth would get tied around the kitchen spray, the bathroom cloth around the bathroom spray etc..

            In the past I used to just use these cloths once and then throw them out, which was not good for my pocket or the environment! Now I disinfect them after use in water and a couple of drops of Zoflora. I find they dry out quickly and can be re-used many times before they start looking raggy. The exception is the window cleaning cloth - I'm not sure if it's something in my glass cleaner causing it, but the fibres seem to weaken after only a few uses. Also I don't re-use a cloth after I've used it on the toilet - those ones go straight in the bin!

            Ten cloths cost 36p from ASDA, which works out at the bargain price of 3.6p per cloth. The next brand up is ASDA's own (non-smart price) cloths which cost £1.38 for 12, making them 11.5p each, quite a difference in price. We might not be talking big money savings, but considering I get through a couple of packs per month, it works out at a couple of quid - and I'd rather that couple of quid was in my pocket rather than ASDA's!

            Overall I am very pleased with these cloths and will continue to buy them. They are strong, versatile and a bargain too. Highly recommended!
