For cleaning just about any surface around the home, microfiber cloth is the ideal tool for the task. Although it will not work well unless it is used properly. A cloth that is saturated will do little more than spread surface dirt around.
Start with a dry microfiber cloth for dusting or cleaning up wet messes. When dusting use just enough pressure to keep the cloth in contact with the surface to be cleaned. Go over the surface once for the bulk of the dust particles then flip the cloth over to gather any remaining fine particles. A single 12 inch x 12 inch cloth should be adequate to dust around 48 square feet of surface area.
Smooth Hard Surfaces
We recommend using a barely damp microfiber cloth when cleaning grime from hard surfaces like mirrors, windows, counters, and appliances. If you are new to cleaning with microfiber the best place to start cleaning is a bathroom or full length mirror. When using a damp cloth for general cleaning you should expect to not see any wet film on the surface after wiping.
For really dirty jobs you will want to clean the surface with a mild soapy solution to wash all the muck off first. Once the surface is clean, polish using the same technique with the barely damp cloth.
Cleaning the Cleaning Cloth
A tough cloth should stand up to your laundry cycles. Clean your microfiber cloths with hot water, mild detergent, and no fabric softeners. Microfiber cloths can be tumble dried on low or no heat, typically the fluff or delicate cycle. It is okay if they cling to other clothing, this is normal due to the the way the cloths function.
