How to Use and Care for Microfibre

Why use Microfibre:

  • Saves money and outlasts other cleaning cloths
  • Safe for the environment and cleans with water not harsh chemicals
  • Removes 99% of bacteria on surfaces
  • Microfibre lifts and holds dirt, grease, grime, liquids and bacteria.  These fibres include positive-charged polyester fibres and negative-charged nylon fibres that attract and pull-up whatever is on the surface you’re cleaning.

How to use:

  • Use only one section of cloth at a time.  Fold into half, then half again.  This will give you 8 surfaces for cleaning, 4 on each side.
  • For dusting, leave the cloth dry.  For other chores, dampen then wipe the surfaces clean.
  • When the cloth starts to leave behind dirt or lint, or if you’ve used it for a few minutes, re-fold to a fresh section.
  • Continue until the entire cloth has been used or the cleaning chore is complete.

Washing and Caring for Microfibre:

Washing them can preserve the quality of your microfibre cloth.  They work best when washed on their own, with water only.  You shouldn’t use them with any cleaning products, which could stop the microfibre from working as effectively.

The only No’s you need to remember are: NO heat, NO fabric softener, NO laundry detergent.

Drying: if you tumble dry, be sure to use a low setting.  It is better to let them air dry, as they will last longer and will prevent it from picking up loose particles that often get caught up in tumble dryers and high heat conditions.

NEVER iron them, the heat will make them less effective.
