There is no doubt; microfiber is an incredible cleaning tool however it does have limitations. Most of those limitations are a result of microfiber working too well. I recently had a conversation with a customer about this very subject. My customer is an industrial laundry, they’re main business is providing uniform service but they also provide wet mops and dust mop (among other things) to their customers. The products they provide are picked up and laundered every week. They made the decision to switch all of their wet mops and dust mops from cotton/synthetic to microfiber. At first this sounded like a great idea, microfiber cleans better and lasts longer than their cotton and synthetic counter parts. Longevity is key for laundries. However after we gave it some thought we realized that there were certain instances where microfiber wouldn’t be best.
