I first learned about e-cloth in the fall of 2016. I did my first interview with Al Coviello later that year. I have since acquired and used many of the e-cloth products throughout my home. My wife and I are converts and we now use e-cloth almost exclusively for cleaning. We have begun giving e-cloth Baby Care products to young mothers as baby and shower gifts. It seems to me that once you understand how e-cloths exert their magic, and once you experience how well they work, it’s nearly impossible to not consider this as an ideal solution to cleaning your local (home) environment. I recommend that you listen to my previous interview with Al. In that interview we explore the e-cloth technology and the science that gives us confidence in the cleaning and anti-bacterial benefits.

There are three areas that I think you should consider when considering the benefits of Baby Care e-cloths.

  1. They clean better than anything else. They would be worth the cost if this was all they did.
  2. They remove over 99% of bacteria from hard surfaces. They is scientifically confirmed by one of the best food safety labs in the world. E-cloths do not recontaminate other surfaces.
  3. They reduce exposure to cleaning chemicals. This is a major concern for all of us who seek to avoid chemicals in our daily lives. This is much more of a concern for babies, infants and children. Babies especially are more affected than adults which makes this a more serious issue.

We will discuss all of these in this interview with Al Coviello. We covered the first two items in detail in my previous interview with Al. You should listen to that interview as well for a fuller understanding of the e-cloth technology. In this interview we are going to look into the issue of exposure to chemicals either through cleaning chemicals or chemicals in baby products such a baby wipes. Chemicals in baby wipes should be of preeminent concern.

The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
Just recently, Baby Care by e-cloth was recently awarded The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval. This distinguished recognition is not given lightly; it is given only to products that meet the highest of standards. 

Over and eight-week period, Baby Care by e-cloth products were put through rigorous, true-to-life testing with industry experts, some of the world’s most respected authorities in the field of child rearing and development and the toughest critics of all, real families. The testers are encouraged to play with, build, read about, and judge by the reactions of the children, each product’s quality.

“Give any parent the chance to spend less time cleaning and more time knowing that their child is not being exposed to harmful chemicals and they will beat a path to your door,” said David Katzner, President of The National Parenting Center. “Our product testing division, run by independent testers including parents, educators and panelists of The National Parenting Center, has determined that [Baby Care by e-cloth is] worthy of this special recognition.”

But what does this mean for you as the consumer? 
Being a parent is stressful. With the endless aisles and websites of baby products, deciding on what is best to use on and around your child is not always straightforward. Knowing what products are tried-and-true and recommended by the experts alleviates a lot of the worry that goes into the decision making process.

Products that have earned this Seal from such a trusted source have earned the respect and loyalty of real-life users. You can trust that Baby Care by e-cloth products live up to their lofty claims of high-performance and safety.

Example of chemical exposure in baby wipes:
“A preservative used in disposable baby wipes and other products is causing an increasing number of cases of allergic contact dermatitis. Methylisothiazolinone (MI) has been used in a range of cosmetic and personal products, including disposable wet wipes, shampoos, conditioners, body washes, moisturizers, sunscreens and deodorants, as well as in paints, cooling tower water and cutting oils since the early 2000s. 

Dr Jennifer Cahill, a dermatologist with the Skin and Cancer Foundation Inc, and her team, have included MI in their baseline patch test series for allergies since 2011, after European reports of increased numbers of cases of MI contact allergy.” Excerpt from Skin & Cancer Foundation, March 3, 2014.

Toxic Chemicals in Newborns
“Hundreds of toxins, including industrial chemicals, pesticides, and other pollutants may be contaminating some U.S. newborns, according to a small study. In a study of newborn blood released by the Environmental Working Group, an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants were found in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies. The babies were born in August and September of 2004 in U.S. hospitals. The newborns’ blood was collected after the umbilical cord was cut, according to the EWG, which may indicate that the infants were exposed to the compounds while still in the womb.” Excerpt from WebMD, July 14, 2005.

Bottom Line

  • e-cloth is scientifically better.
  • e-cloth cleans better.
  • e-cloth is better for your family.
  • e-cloth is better for the environment.

Just try them for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
