Friday Favourite: fast2clean Mini Microfiber Cleaners

*Giveaway is now closed*


The Missing U is one of my favourite quilts from Sunday Morning Quilts. It came together with Amanda Jean's contribution and really was the start of our collaboration on the book. Right now it is living on our bed, keeping me warm when I fall asleep and soaking up the almost spring sun's warmth during the day.

Because it is a favourite I was thrilled when C&T contacted me about using images of the quilt in a new product. The fast2clean Microfiber Cleaners are pretty cool. At first I thought it was kind of cheesy and pointless. But they arrived right around the time I started using a certain fruit based music device. Between my fingertips and the greasy fingers of my kidlets on the face of it, the thing was a mess. 


Then I pulled out my handy little microfiber cleaner. Through the wonders of static it sticks to the back of the device. Then I can pull it off and clean the face every time the grubby fingerprints get to be too much. It really works well for that. I've even used it for my computer monitor in a pinch!

And once I discovered that I can access Instagram through this device the whole thing gets used a lot more than for hard-core dance fests with the girls. The camera on this thing is only marginally better than my cell phone and I'm still trying to figure out even some of the potential, but feel free to follow me there for some snippets of daily life, and sneak peeks at projects that end up here.

The other quilt featured is by Kim Shaefer.


C&T very generously sent me extras of this product. So, if you can't find them in your LQS or don't want to order them on Amazon, try your hand at this little give-away!

These are fun!

That is so fun that they used your quilt for the image. I too have fruit related devices that could use this.
Also, I like the variety of comment props, so I'll just answer them all! I happen to love purple and I love this photography blog: artandmath.tumblr.com (he has a proper website too, but this loads so much faster)
I think you have it, but just incase: carlyfriesen1(at)gmail(.)com

Patti said...

I can see why you were hesitant at first, but they do seem like a really functional item. And "fruit related device" just cracked me up!

These are cool, and really handy for these little fruity devices that accidentially get into my kids' hands.
My favourite colour is green, both for crafting and for living.
Thanks for the chance!

Thanks for telling us about these. I haven't even given them a second look, now I will.
I don't have a favourite color to quilt with. Although I did come home yesterday with the same fabric that I purchased last month (not intended lol)

Fruit based music device indeed....I will have to borrow that to use in my gr 11 chem class next week. As always an entertaining read.

Flaun of I Plead Quilty! said...

So cute! I'm forever wiping my fruit based music device on my pants; this would be a welcome subtsitute.

My colors have been evolving lately it seems- I always liked blues, but lately I've been drawn to reds!

One of my favorites in the book :) right now I'm loving yellow!

Deairdre said...

What a cool little thing! Thanks so much for the give away. Love the quilt design concept.

Live a Colorful Life said...

Well, I love orange. But I'm really starting to enjoy living with aqua. And why did it take me to long to decipher "fruit based music device"?

Leanne said...

I guess I love all colours and lately I am drawn to orange and pink and red all together. How cool to have your quilts on those dots, I would love one, thanks for the chance to win.

NotionNanny said...

What a fabulous idea. I love the part where they stick to the back of your fruit based music device. I definitely am going to look out for this product. Thanks for the review. I am going to send it to all my friends via my newsletter www.notionnanny.com/Newsletter.html. I bet they will all come to your site to read the review!

hiyacinth said...

I'd love to try these! Great graphics, too! My favorite color to work with would be blue.

Grandmasewnsew said...

These are a great idea and so pretty with your quilt on them! I love to work with aqua.

Jess said...

Those are pretty neat! My favorite color to live with is yellow because it's so bright and cheery. I just wish I wasn't so pale and could wear it more... Thanks!

Linda Burke said...

What an excellent idea! I always try to keep a few microfiber cloths around, but they always get misplaced.

My favorite color these days is gray. Any shade of gray us cool, but I'm especially fond of light, nearly ice blue shades that are so neutral they can seriously go with everything. Sheer happiness. :-)

Kate said...

My favorite color is blue. Always has been, probably always will be, though I flirt with others now and then.

Fran said...

My favourite colour is green, all shades of green are lovely. Thanks for the chance to win this clever cleaning device.

Deanna said...

Thanks for sharing. My favorite colour is constantly changing to what I have picked for my current quilt!!!!

Sarah said...

Red to live and work with. Nifty idea for a screen cleaner! Would love to use it on my iPad!

elisepearson said...

I'm just now trying to figure out how to deal with so many greasy fingerprints on my kindle - these sound perfect.

In the midst of a move, I'm looking around and realizing how much lime green stuff we have and how much those things make me smile. I never would have thought that would be a color I was drawn to, but there you go. Haven't really worked with it in quilting yet, but come to think of it, one of my favorite quilts is a grandmother's garden EPP that's got a lovely retro green solid...

Christi said...

I love those things! I keep a large pink microfiber cloth in my car to clean my iPad and Navigation screen. These would be great for the phone and the bonus of them being in quilt patterns is so much fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

Very cool they used your quilt image! My favorite colors to use in quilting right now are bright, saturated yellow, lime, hot pink, turquoise, ... you get the idea. Pair these with Kona snow and I am a happy quilter.

wendysquilting said...

I'm really curious about these? I'd like to try them..might have to buy some. well that is if I don't win some?

Anonymous said...

I think thats awesome they used your quilt image. I love the color orange. Its found everywhere in the things I bought/buy for the girls. But I like all colors bold bright and vibrant. I think its remnants of growing up in the desert where everything seemed felt so monotone...white and beige!
