How do microfibre cloths work?
Microfibre is arguably the most effective tool for dislodging dirt and dust.
Microfibre is an ultra-fine synthetic fibre made from a blend of polyester and polyamide. These small fibres are finer than a human hair, making them able to penetrate small nooks and crannies in surfaces to remove dust and dirt.
Its composition and texture allow for efficient removal of residues and moisture necessary for the survival of microorganisms. When several microfibres are woven together into a fabric, they create a net-shaped surface that can absorb and capture moisture, dirt and other particles.
Furthermore, the nylon or polyamide in the microfibre has a static charge that attracts and traps dirt particles. Manufacturers of microfibre cloth use a chemical process to split the microfibres and create a positive electric charge.
