I found this in my Dollar Stretcher newsletter I get, this is cool, and I'm going to try it.

The Polar Solution

By accident, I discovered that polar fleece with warm water
and vinegar will clean anything, especially the shower! I
purchased a metre from the fabric store (buy the best quality
that you can afford) and cut it up into approximately 20cm
squares. We use it for everything from washing our faces to
cleaning and dusting the house (different colors for different
uses of course). They don't scratch, and they wash well and
dry quickly.

I bought polar fleece to use as liners in my son's dipes, but I don't need as much as I have. Polar fleece is great because you don't have to sew the edges. I'll try it and let you all know if it works!

Interesting! I happen to have just a few fleece scraps laying around and would love to hear about your success.

there was one of those swiffer type mops left here when we moved in-I use a piece of fleece on it to do the floors and it works great.

Update: Oh, so cool! I've been using fleece with vinegar for a few weeks now, and I really like it! I warm the vinegar up, and when I get in the shower, I wipe it down with the vinegar using fleece. It really takes the orange gunk off the shower. I also use it with lemon juice/baking soda in the kitchen. And I took a big fleece scrap and attached to an old swiffer thingy, and mopped the kitchen floor (using Mrs. Meyers all purpose). I REALLY liked that. I thought it would get too wet, and too hard to wring out, but it really didn't. The floor was a LITTLE wetter than if I hand mopped it, but not enough to be a pain.
