Advances in green cleaning technology have created cleaning products and tools that are beneficial to the environment, help prevent illness, and are more efficient and economical to use. One such advance in beating bacteria is microfiber cloths.
Microfiber cloths are made from polyester. They maintain their shape well and hold up to eight times their weight in water. They also absorb oils exceptionally well and don’t scratch surfaces because they are extremely soft. Learn more. Also, although these products may cost more, they are actually more cost effective because they last longer and require less effort to use.
Ease of Use
Wash microfiber mops and rags in regular washing detergent. Dry on normal settings and the cloths and mops are ready to use. (Pro tip: don’t use fabric softeners. Th oils in these products clog the fibers and make microfiber less effective.)
Cost Effective and Green
Microfiber cloths typically remove 99% of bacteria from non-porous surfaces without the use of chemicals. An anti-microbial treatment helps prevent the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria. Also, studies have found that microfiber can provide bacteria-reducing benefits for up to 300 washes when it is cared for properly.
