One of the keys to a streak free shine is getting a surface completely dry before water spots form. So, how do you do this? With a little trick your grandparents probably used, a chamois!

Wet your chamois and wring it out well before each use. This sheepskin cloth is super absorbent and can be used all over the house inside and out.

You can use a chamois to clean shower doors and walls. The abosrbent cloth will soak up all the excess water and leave behind nothing but a shine.

You can wring it out whenever it gets saturated and start over. Try it on your mirrors too!

The chamois is great in the kitchen for cleaning fingerprints and water rings from any counter surface. The cloth isn't treated so it's safe for all types of counters.

It's also perfect for spots and prints on appliances.

Outside you can use your chamois to dry off your car to prevent spotting.

You can also stick it in your beach bag, it's the perfect tiny towel. Dry your skin wring it out and stick it back in the bag. No bulk, no mess.

So grab a chamois and dry your way to a gorgeous home! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
