You may have heard a lot of hype about microfiber cloths and how they are used in home
cleaning. Well, it’s not just a lot of hype. You may have even used a soft cloth thinking it is niceto hold and may have noticed it absorbs more than a terry cloth towel. But do you know why?
The Secret’s In The Fibers
In a traditional terrycloth fabric, there are a bunch of fibers on the end. You can feel the softness.
But, that doesn’t compare at all to the fibers on the microfiber cloth. In fact, even under a
microscope, it is impossible to see these little guys. And, that's where all the magic lies!
You see, for every little fiber sticking out, a little piece of dirt can be harvested. You may think
that if the fiber is so little, how can it possibly pick up a significant amount of dirt? Because it
gathers up the billions of little pieces that most traditional cloths sweep past and leave behind.
For, there is a kind attraction between the fibers and the dirt. They are literally drawn to each
other. On a side note, the Dutch chemist, Johannes Diderik van der Waals explains why a gecko
is able to stick to a ceiling - all the little hairs it has on its hands and feet. Well, the same
principle is used here.
Use Less Detergent – If Any
You probably wouldn't even think of using a regular cloth all by itself to dust or clean. But you
can with the microfiber cloths. They just sweep it up, and all the dirt and stays with the cloth. So
for those who live in air-tight apartments or houses, using microfibers in place of regular
cleaning cloths and a whole lot of soap or other detergents sure makes a lot more sense. Your air
is fresher without all the toxins.
