Microfibers are densely constructed polyester and polyamide (nylon) fibers that are approximately 1/16th the thickness of a human hair. When woven together, these fibers create a net-like surface area covered with millions of spaces to trap moisture, dirt and debris. The micro fibers are able to get into tiny nooks and crevices whereas the traditional cotton cloth and mop fibers are not.
The nylon component of the fiber also produces a static charge that attracts dirt, pulling it in and trapping it until the cloth or pad is washed.

      What Is Microfiber?
      Microfiber is a material made from synthetic fibers. A microfiber is no more than one denier (a standard unit of weight) thick—about one-fifth of a human hair.

      Most microfiber is made of polyester but may also be mixed with nylon to add strength and repel water. A few are made from rayon and resemble the qualities of natural silk. Depending upon the shape, size, and combination of materials, the benefits of microfiber include its ability to take on different qualities, like strength, softness, water absorbency, or repellency. As a cleaning cloth, it’s also lint-free and effective at removing dirt from both delicate and strong surfaces.

      The production of these ultra-fine fibers began in the 1950s and Ultrasuede, also made of microfibers, was developed in the 1970s for easy-care fabrics for apparel and home fashion applications.

      Microfiber Uses
      Cleaning Rags and Mops
      Cloths, towels, and mops made from microfiber can be found everywhere and are excellent fabrics for cleaning. They are woven to be strong and long-lasting, and because of their extremely fine man-made fibers, they leave no lint or dirt. Due to the type of microfiber used, these cloths are electrostatic and will also absorb grease and oil. The fine thread and weave of the material mean these cloths can even be anti-bacterial since they will pick up small bacteria that elude cotton cloths. Cleaning cloths made of microfiber should be washed after every use in laundry detergent.
