Microfiber is a synthetic fiber made from a blend of polyester and polyamide. These teardrop-shaped fibers are one-sixteenth the size of a human hair and act as "hooks" to scrape up and hold dust, dirt, and grime. Check out why products made from microfiber are superior to traditional cotton or synthetic materials:
Microfibers can absorb up to seven times their weight in water due to their high density and surface area! Cleaning up spills is a snap, and microfiber mops reduce the amount of water and chemicals needed to complete the job. And because they're so much lighter than regular cotton mops, microfiber mops are a real back saver!
Soak Up the Savings:
Because microfibers soak up more water and trap more dirt, many users find that they don't need to use nearly as much cleaning product and water to get the job done. Since microfiber products are so much more efficient, cleaning jobs take less time, reducing labor costs! From mopping floors to polishing metal, microfiber products cut back on chemicals, time, and grime.
Microfiber materials are positively charged through a chemical process that manufacturers use to split the fibers. This makes them a magnet for negatively-charged dirt and dust! Microfiber mop heads and pads are better at reaching corners, grout lines, and other hard-to-reach spaces.
Pathogens, bacteria, and viruses will "stick" to a microfiber cloth or mop head until they're laundered out - a plus for hospitals, daycare operations, retirement communities, and restaurant kitchens. Since microfiber products are made of inorganic materials, pathogens have nothing to feed on, unlike regular cotton products!
Long Life & Ease of Use:
Once a microfiber product is soiled, simply throw it in the wash! Most microfiber cloths, mops, and pads can withstand over 500 uses (use then launder), provided you follow this simple tip: Don't use microfiber with or wash it with bleach or fabric softener. Bleach degrades the material, breaking it down quicker. Fabric softener clings to and coats the microfiber, so it won't clean surfaces as well or rinse as thoroughly.
Because microfibers help you save on the amount of time and product needed to clean, you'll use less water and harsh chemicals! Using a wet microfiber cloth to clean mirrors and counters saves on paper towels. Plus, recycled plastic products are often used to produce microfiber products, which in turn can be recycled when sent to companies that repurpose them.
