What are Microfiber Cloth?

Microfiber cloths are really good for cleaning and are better to use than using paper towels or old rags.

Microfiber Cloth is safe for the environment, removes ninety-nine percent of bacteria from surfaces, leaves no lint or dust, and is a great absorber of water.

Microfiber is used in many cleaning tools and can be used for mops, dusters, and cleaning cloths.

What is Microfiber made from?

Microfiber cloths are made from very small fibers. They make the fibers in cotton cleaning cloths seem downright bulky and cloddish. Microfiber is a synthetic fiber that consists of polyester and polyamide.

Polyester is basically a kind of plastic, and polyamide is a fancy name for nylon. The fibers have been split into very fine strands that are porous and dry quickly. The polyester provides the structure of a towel, while the polyamide adds density and absorption. Microfiber is a material that is durable, soft, and absorbent, making it perfect for a variety of uses such as cleaning.

Though using plastic is essentially not a good thing, I personally feel the value of using a microfibre is in its long-term and multipurpose use.

Did you know that there are many different types of Microfiber cloth?

Microfiber cloths are defined by their thickness, therefore when choosing a cloth make sure it is not a think cloth if you need to use it in the kitchen to clean up spills, etc.

Each level of thickness serves a different purpose as microfiber can be used fo cleaning eyeglasses, doing dishes, and polishing cars and furniture.

How much Can a Microfiber Cloth absorb?

Microfiber cloths are highly absorbent and can absorb roughly seven times their weight in liquid. Of course, this makes it much easier for us to wash the dishes and do things that involve a lot of water to be more efficient as we don't need to use a lot of paper towels or rags.

How do Microfiber Cloths work?

Paper towels are great to have around the home, let's admit but we can do better by using them less and using microfibre cloths to tackle more around our homes.

The fibers in a microfiber rag lift and hold dirt, grease, liquids, grime, and bacteria. There are millions of fibers in microfiber rags which has both positive and negative charged ions which attract and pull whatever is on the surface to your cloth.
