HOW TO WASH MICROFIBER

HOW TO WASH MICROFIBER

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 in the dryer!
  • 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. Like anything you wash, be sure to separate your white or light colored microfiber from your dark colored microfiber.
  5. If you hand wash, wash in hot water with mild detergent and use a soft bristled brush if necessary – rinse thoroughly
