Default Have you used the Glitter Clean Up Cloth?

Does this cloth really work? It says its supposed to pick up glitter and hold it in. I find I HATE using glitter because of the mess it creates. I would like an honest opinion from anyone who has used this cloth.

Does it really pickup the glitter and hold it in as well as they say it should or would a swiffer cloth do the same?

Thumbs up YES

A big thumbs up.
Get a cloth and cut it in half or quarters. It looks like cheesecloth but has a special coating.
Are you doing the burnished velvet glitter tech?

I was just going to get one so maybe it would encourage me to use my glitter. I don't even know what the burnished velvet glitter technique is. Can you explain or provide a link to how this is done?

Also, thanks a bunch for all the great replies. I will definitely add this to my order.

If you use glitter, these are definately a MUST have! Love it. My first thought on it was that it was silly and I would not pay for it. Scor-pal had a special running a while back that if you bought so much glitter (thye no longer carry the glitter) you got one free. So glad because now I order some very time I place an order from them. I really never want to run out!

I have done a handful of projects for the Art Institute Glitter gallery and for my glitter messes, I just use a cheap ol' lint remover roll. You know, the ones with the adhesive paper on them that you tear off? Just roll the wand all over my desk... picks up every last speck of glitter. Works great. Lasts forever. Super cheap.

Sounds like one of those "tac cloths" available in hardware stores for wiping sanding dust....is it a little sticky? Wonder if that could be a substitute.

I've never heard of these. I didn't think I lived in a bubble but maybe I do.
Where do they sell them. Can anyone provide a link so I can see what this is.
Thanks

KKene we must be in the same bubble..lol I had never heard of them either. Something I would definitly like to try though. I try not to use glitter because of the mess, but these clean up cloths might be the answer to my mess.

I got this and they are simply tack cloths you can purchase in your home depot (or similar store) cheaply. They are great though..pick up everything!

Wow, I like your idea! How easy, just roll it over the desk and toss when full. I usually buy these in a six pack at Costco and they last me for years. I am a huge fan of finding "unique uses" for tools normally used for other things ! Thanks for the tip!

Mine should be delivered any day now. I have my glitter and will let you know how it works - hopefully by the weekend.

Yes, I even removed a TON of glitter from my VersaMark pads after a recent workshop. Just rolled the lil' lint thingy right over the surface, peel and toss - yippee!

Swiffer cloths for me, because I already have them on hand and they work great.

I keep a little Dirt Devil Detailer cordless vacuum beside my work table. It works great for picking up glitter, embossing powder, small paper scraps and the like. My table has a lip/rim around the edges. I just went crazy trying to get glitter and especially the embossing powder up and off of it. The detailer has a little brush attachment that is also good for computer and keyboard dust. I absolutely love it. Here's a link to the product details: http://www.dirtdevil.com/Products/pr....aspx?ID=32947

I got mine on the bay for 5 bucks with $8 shipping a couple of years ago.
