Here's why you're frustrated with your current cleaning methods :
When using old technologies - sponges, paper towels, regular cloths & microfbers - cleaning chemicals or soaps are always needed to cut grease, grime, stickiness & dirt from your surfaces.
Unfortunately, these cleaners will leave a film or residue behind... which means that now you have chemicals (bad for you & your loved ones) on your surface which causes streaks (bad for that crystal clean look)...
Unless you rinse it thoroughly with water, which means you'll have to use copious amounts of paper towels to avoid water spots! YIKES!
