Caring For Microfiber:

Caring for microfiber is pretty easy if you know the rules. Towels, dusters and mops made of microfiber can last hundreds of washings if you stay away from the 2 big no-nos for microfiber:

  • No Heat!
  • No Fabric Softeners!

Instructions for Washing at Home:

  1. Wash in warm or hot water with mild detergent
  2. No fabric softeners – they clog the open spaces in the microfiber, making the fabric useless
  3. Be careful what you wash with your microfiber. Avoid anything made with cotton because the microfiber will grab on to the lint
  4. Ideally wash microfiber with only microfiber but if you must mix loads, wash with other non-linting synthetics
  5. If you hand wash, wash in hot water with mild detergent and use a soft bristled brush if necessary – rinse thoroughly

Drying Microfiber at Home

  • To ensure the longest lasting microfiber, air dry is best
  • Microfiber dries relatively quickly
  • If you use a dryer, set it on low heat or no heat
  • Dry with other microfiber products only so that it doesn’t pick up extra lint

For maximum performance and longevity, follow these guidelines for commercial laundering:
