Microfiber is made from small synthetic fibers that can trap tiny particles and clean more effectively than regular cloths. Microfiber cloths and towels also brighten hard-to-clean surfaces. Follow our tips to wash your microfiber.
- Vigorously shake cloth to remove debris. If wet, rinse and wring out the cloth with hot water, making sure no soap remains. Air dry.
- Wash microfiber in the washing machine on the hottest setting. This will remove bacteria and abrasive cleaners after wet, gritty or bacterial cleaning.
- Be sure to avoid bleach and fabric softener, these items could clog the fibers and deteriorate the cloth.
- Refrain from washing microfiber with towels, as lint gets embedded in the fabric and reduces effectiveness.
- Dry with high heat. Do not use a dryer sheet.
Tip: If washed with towels or fabric softener, place the microfiber items into boiling water for 15 minutes to expand the fibers and release the residue.
