What is Microfiber Exactly?

Microfiber Super Powers  

Microfiber is a man-made synthetic fiber that swept the industry, literally. When it comes to attracting dirt, it's one of the best options for cleaning because the fibers have an electric charge. Aside from these super powers, a microfiber cloth is very durable and soft, making it a great wiping product that gives you a smarter, more effective way to clean.

How is a microfiber made? 

Microfiber is made from polyester and polyamide fibers that are split into incredibly fine strands. Each strand of fiber is then sliced multiple times and tightly spun together with another sliced thread. These microfibers then become stronger and more durable than their natural counterpart fibers.

How does microfiber work?

Amazingly during the process of splitting the fibers, each strand picks up a positive electric charge. This positive charge makes them a good match for negatively charged dirt particles and the grooves then act to trap dirt, debris and bacteria.

Why is microfiber a safer option to a cotton wiping cloth?

It comes down to the amount of bacteria each wiper can collect. Studies show there can be as high as a 99% reduction in bacteria from pre-cleaning with microfiber while only 33% reduction with a cotton cloth.
