What is a Microfiber Cloth?

Microfiber cloths are made up of super fine synthetic yarns split into millions of microscopic strands, 100 times smaller than human hair. They are highly absorbent and can hold seven times the weigh of the cloth in water.

What are the different type of Microfiber cloths?

All Purpose Cleaning Microfiber: This type is usually a terry type weave with lots of surface for dusting and picking up spills and general cleaning.

Glass: A knit microfiber to remove streaks  and smudges from mirrors,  glass and electronics. Mainly used a drying cloth after an all purpose cloth.

Textured cloth: Used for drying and scrubbing.

Polishing Cloth: longer and higher nap than the the all purpose cloth. Ultra plush and high pile used for polishing silver and brass.

Microfiber cloths are more absorbent than cotton and eliminates 99% of bacteria.

How to choose a good quality microfiber cloth?

Look for 80/20 or 70/20 polyester and polyamide ratio. Avoid 100% polyester. A good microfiber cloth is grippy, thicker and can withstand many washings. Do not use fabric softener when washing the microfiber cloths.
