Microfiber Cloths – Using and Washing

Our microfiber cloths are 100% polyester microfibers that are tightly woven together to create an ultra-soft, ultra-absorbent material. Our Microfiber products clean with less effort than traditional methods. It’s one-of-a-kind for cleaning as they trap dust and dirt like no other material can.

What makes them better?

There are approximately 200,000 fibers in one square inch of a microfiber towel, creating a lot of surface area in which to absorb liquid or hold dust and dirt. Our microfiber cloths are positively charged. Dirt and dust are negatively charged so they are literally attracted to microfiber like a magnet. The microfiber holds on to the dust and dirt until it’s released in the laundering process or when it’s rinsed out. The advantages to using microfiber to clean are almost endless. Given the facts that they can last hundreds of washings when cared for properly, can absorb 7 times their weight in liquid, are hypoallergenic, don’t need added chemical cleaners it’s no wonder their popularity has skyrocketed in the last decade.

Using the Colors?

This is very easy to explain. Let’s say you wash your toilet with a green cloth, your wife takes the same green cloth to clean a spill on the ground. Now would you use this green cloth to clean your face? No. Color coordination can be used to specify specific colors used all the time on same materials. Use the blue microfiber cloth to clean glass. Use the green microfiber cloth for dusting. Use the yellow microfiber cloth for cleaning. Use a red microfiber cloth with a product of your choice. It’s important to realize that microfibers hold on to dirt and grime until it’s washed therefore using your microfiber cloth that is full of dust to clean your windows might not be the best idea.

How to care for microfiber products?

They may be washed in your home washing machine or by hand, but to ensure the long life of your microfiber please follow these guidelines.

Machine Washing Microfiber: Wash in warm or hot water with mild detergent. Do not use fabric softener, it will clog the open spaces in the microfiber that do the cleaning rendering the towel or cloth useless.  Microfiber tends to grab a hold of lint in the wash just like it grabs dirt and dust when you’re using it to clean. With this in mind be careful of what you wash microfiber with. Avoid washing it with anything made of cotton especially terry cloth towels, socks etc. Ideally you should wash microfiber only with other microfiber, but if you need to mix loads wash it with other non-linting synthetic materials.

Hand Washing Microfiber: Wash in hot water with mild detergent, use a soft bristled brush if necessary. Rinse thoroughly.

Drying Microfiber: Air drying microfiber will make it last the longest. Microfiber dries relatively quickly. If you choose to dry your microfiber in a dryer do so on low heat or no heat and only dry with other microfiber products to prevent the mops or towels from picking up lint. Microfiber will grab a hold of any lint given off by other items in your dryer if they are dried with anything else that lints.
