Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
How They Work and How to Choose One

Many of the household cleaners we use contain a variety of harmful toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, phenol, ammonia, ethanol, butane, propane to name a few. And, these chemicals have a large impact on our health and environment.

Individuals that suffer from allergies or multiple chemical sensitivities are even more susceptible to the ill effects of these toxic chemicals. Whether its for health reasons or whether you just want a chemical free way to clean, people have been turning again to the old tried and true cleaning solutions, such as baking soda, vinegar, etc. The only problem is that in our busy society, these cleaners aren't as convenient as off the shelf cleaning products.

However, there is a faster healthier way to clean - Microfiber Cleaning Cloths. Microfiber cleaning cloths enable you to clean almost everything with just the cloth and hot water. They eliminate the need to carry around different cleaners for different uses. These cloths are a great environmentally friendly healthy alternative to cleaning with chemicals.

Microfiber is a polyester/nylon blend. The polyester and nylon are alternatively forced through a nozzle that combines them through a heat weaving process. The fiber is then split a number of times to create the microfibers that are then intertwined to create an ultra absorbent microfiber material.

The splitting of the fiber creates millions of edges that enable you to clean closer to surfaces and trap all the dust and dirt that bonds to the microfiber material and is not released until the cloth is washed in hot water. Therefore the dirt is not transferred from surface to surface while cleaning. And, microfiber cloths work especially well on mirrors, windows, and glass because the surface will dry totally streak free.

There are many different types of microfiber cloths on the market to suit every price range and need. Here's what to look for in a microfiber cloth:

  • How many times is the fiber split to create the microfibers? A higher split means you will get a more effective cleaning cloth.
  • How many times can you wash the cloth? The more washes it can handle the more durable the cloth.
  • Does the cloth come with a guarantee? This shows that the company stands behind its products.

As with most things, you get what you pay for. A good quality microfiber cloth may be more expensive, but it will last longer. But, the important thing to remember is that you will get better results cleaning with any microfiber cloth than with just a regular cleaning rag.

Microfiber cleaning is better for your health, your environment and your wallet. You can use microfiber cloths to clean windows, glass, mirrors, kitchens, bathrooms, floors, cars and almost any surface you can think of.

Microfiber cleaning cloths provide a pure, clean, simple, safe and fast method of cleaning.
