Microfiber cloths are critical to anyone who wants get the most out of their green cleaning products. Since they were introduced to the cleaning industry in 2007, Micro Fiber Cloths have increased in popularity … and reduced in price. A high quality microfiber cloth is the most important thing to use with your green cleaning products at home and as part of your green janitorial supplies at the workplace.
By nature, microfiber attracts dust, debris, and other particles. Each fiber in the microfiber cloth has a system of hook like claws that captures dirt and dust, as well as pollen and other allergy producing particles. (This is why they feel rough on our hands.) Microfiber cloths work because they act like a scraper while they lift and trap the dirt and moisture in the nooks and crannies of the individual fibers.
Cotton fibers in traditional cotton rags just push the dirt from one point to another. Microfiber cloths store the dirt within the cloth until it is washed.
It is best to use the microfiber cloth dry.
Microfiber cloths have many other benefits and features, including:
- Lint free
- Super absorbent yet quick drying
- Easily color coded to minimize cross contamination
- Long lasting (can withstand hundreds of washings!)
- Soft and holds its shape well due of the thinness of the strands
Maintaining your micro fiber cloths is easy as it only requires washing in a standard machine with a laundry detergent that is free of any chemical softening agents. Hot water is the best way to release the trapped dirt. Air drying is sufficient … and quick.
In summary, micro fiber cloths are more than four times more effective than ordinary cleaning cloths. The best microfiber cloths are those that have the yarn split during the manufacturing process and are a blend of 80 percent Polyester and 20 percent Polyamide. Microfiber cloths used with green cleaning products and janitorial chemicals will give you a safe green clean in your home and business.
