Microfiber cloths have become increasingly popular with consumers in recent years. Cloths are commonly manufactured with synthetic threads that have a diameter smaller than a strand of silk. Fibers are then used to produce a woven or non woven product. The most popular form of microfiber cloths are produced from woven fibers that have been split in the manufacturing process. The combinations, shape, and size of the fibers allow manufacturers to produce cloth with different characteristics.
What makes a great microfiber cleaning cloth?
The most common microfiber cloths are composed of a blend of woven polyamide and polyester threads that have been split. Cloths that are made with this blend of materials and the right knitting process are incredibly effective, soft, and durable. These cloths can absorb oils and many times their weight in water and are not hard enough to scratch unless they have retained particles from previous use. A high quality microfiber cloth will grip on a microscopic scale and should feel like it is sticking to the fine details of your hands.
Used at home and in professional cleaning applications.
The characteristics and durability of our microfiber cloths have made them popular with professionals and every day cleaning at home.
Automobile enthusiasts and detail teams use microfiber cloths for their versatility. They can be used to remove wax from paint, clean glass, remove interior dust, and for drying.
Professional photographers frequently use microfiber cloths on lenses and equipment to absorb and clean debris without leaving residue behind or being abrasive.
Janitorial services and home owners use microfiber cloths because the durability makes them last longer than a cloth made from organic fibers and they are more economical than paper towels.
Proper care for our microfiber cloths.
It is important to wash microfiber cloth in hot water with regular washing detergent. Self-softening detergents contain oils that will make the fibers of the cloth less effective until it is properly washed. Alternatively you can hand wash with mild dish soap and rinse with cool water.
Cloths are made from synthetic materials and the fibers will melt together in the high heat of tumble dryers. You may tumble dry the cloth without dryer sheets and only on the low heat setting.
