The cleaning of kitchens, bathroom and other spaces often entails the use of chemical cleaning agents. In the past some of these cleaning agents were quite harsh. The advent of less harmful cleaners and microfiber cloths means there is much less need for harsh chemicals.
The technology behind microfibers dates back to the late 1950s. Fine fibres were produces and used for several purposes, including ultra-suede clothing. It wasn’t until the 1990s that microfiber cleaning cloths appeared the market.
The advantage of microfiber cleaning materials lies in the very thin fibres used, in the order of 1 denier, which is about 1/5 of a human hair. This super thin fibre has several advantages the two most prominent being the ability to hold a lot of water in the space between fibres, and the ability to clean at a very small scale.
The ability of microfiber to clean at a small scale allows us to often avoid the need for chemical solvents and antiseptics. The tiny fibres attract and attach themselves to the tiniest particles, including microscopic ones. This includes germs and bacteria. Wiping with a clean microfiber cloth is often enough to disinfect a hard surface. This makes for very convenient cleaning.
Microfiber cloths are also very effective for removing grease, often with less physical force than convention cloths and solvents.
An added bonus is that microfiber cloths are extremely soft, so they can be used to shine delicate glossy surfaces like the paintwork on a new car.
Microfiber cloths achieve with advanced physics what was once only possible with chemistry. They are the 21st century way to remove toxins, bacteria, germs and grease from most hard surface.
Keep a few microfiber cloths on hand for cleaning home and office surfaces.
