How To Care For Microfiber Cloths & Mops
Microfiber is hardy but also delicate at the same time. On one hand, Microfiber is constructed of refined plastics that will never degrade over time. However, to preserve the life (and usefulness) of your microfiber it is better to wash and dry after use. Otherwise, you run the risk of contaminants setting in the cloth. This will hamper future cleaning efforts by clogging the fine cleaning channels and increases the risk of cross-contamination. Follow the microfiber care guide below and protect your wholesale microfiber investment.
- Wash the most soiled microfiber in separate loads. This is most easily done when using a color coordinated system as some tasks are dirtier than others.
- Do not use fabric softener – it will neutralize the natural dirt magnetizing positive charge of microfiber.
- Wash microfiber only with other microfibers as cotton releases lint that is trapped within the microfibers. Do not use bleach to remove stains or for any other reason. Bleach will decrease the effectiveness and durability of the microfiber product.
- Keep wash/dry load capacities at 85-90% capacity.
- Microfiber mops can also be hand washed using warm soapy water.
- Program commercial laundry washing machines with the cycle below for optimum results. Use more solvent for heavily soiled cloths, never use extreme alkaline, bleach, or fabric softener.
