What is microfiber cloth?

 Microfiber technology was originally developed in the late 1950s. It has come a long way since those early days. The basic premise is that synthetic fibers (polyester or a polyester/polymide mix) are stretched into an incredibly thin thread, typically less than 1 Denier*. This is 1/100 the diameter of an average human hair or 1/20th the diameter of a strand of silk!! What’s more, when this fiber is woven together, it will create a surface area 40x greater than a normal fiber would.

* A denier is a measure of the thinness of a fiber & is the weight in grams of a continuous thread of 9000 meters).

Microfibers are often split to create what looks like an asterisk or star shape, when looking at a cross section of a thread. This increases their surface area massively & means that they can absorb greater amounts of liquid, dirt, dust. Microfiber can absorb up to 7x it’s own weight in fluids

Due to the greater number of fibers & the greater surface area of these fibers, microfiber is a very effective cleaning tool. Also it’s fibers are positively charged, whereas dirt and dust are negatively charged so they are attracted to microfiber like a magnet.

Dirt is quickly and completely removed with microfiber, leaving a sparkling clean, streak-free surface. Microfiber is safe to use on all delicate surfaces. It will clean without scratching or harming the surface in any way. Microfiber holds on to the dust and dirt until it is released in the laundering process or when it is rinsed out.

Microfiber also cleans on a microscopic level & is very effective at removing bacteria. According to tests, using microfiber materials to clean a surface leads to reducing the number of bacteria by 99%, whereas a conventional cleaning material reduces this number only by 33%.
