How microfiber products work
You can clean just about anything with microfiber cleaners.
This may sound like hype, but it’s true, according to studies performed by hospitals. Microfibers are tiny strands (usually less than one-tenth the thickness of a human hair) that are sliced into even smaller strands and then woven into fabric. Those tiny strands reach into crevices and provide millions of little pockets within the fabric to hold dirt particles. The strands also have sharp scouring edges, so microfiber cloths often clean effectively without chemicals or even water (you can use cleansers or water if you choose).When used dry, the cloths generate static electricity, which attracts and holds dust. To clean out all that dirt, just toss the items in the washing machine. You can use microfiber products to dust furniture, clean glass, mop floors or even wash your car—or anything else. Find these dust cloths, mops and other cleaning gear at most discount stores or online.
