Microfiber – A Healthy Alternative To Hazardous Household Chemical Cleaners

Household Chemical Cleaners Are Hazardous To Your Health

According to an article published by the Independent, scientists claim microfiber and water is a great way to clean your home without the use of harmful chemicals. But what many aren’t aware of are the effects everyday household chemical cleaners can have on your health.

Are My Household Chemical Cleaners Really That Bad?

Yes, unless you think smoking 20 cigarettes a day is good for your lungs. According to a study published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, that’s just how bad chemical sprayers can be for your lungs, and that is just one type of cleaner! What’s even worse is that there are many unknown effects of how chemical cleaners can react with each other. Scary stuff right? Here’s what we do know.

  1. The average household contains about 62 toxic chemicals
  2. Chemical cleaners can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, nose, throat and lungs
  3. Chemical cleaners have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders, hormone disruption and neurotoxicity.

We are finding out there are more and more harmful effects related to long-term exposure to our household chemical cleaners. So why are we letting our homes become polluted with toxins? Is there an effective way to clean without hazardous chemical cleaners? The answer is yes, and in many cases all you need to use is microfiber and water!

Using Microfiber For Healthier Cleaning Solutions!

Here are 2 techniques for healthier cleaning alternatives, by utilizing the cleaning power of microfiber.

1. Microfiber And Water

Did you know that water is great at lifting many types of surface debris? It is called the universal solvent after all. Most people don’t realize that water is a great tool for cleaning, and when paired with a microfiber product, can take care of most of your household cleaning duties. And we all know that water is not detrimental to your health.

2. Microfiber And Chemical Cleaners

In some cases you may want to use more than just water.  Simply spray a bit of your chemical cleaner on a microfiber product and start wiping away! This still serves as a healthier way to clean because you’ll be putting the pollutants in the microfiber towel, rather than in the air or directly on your surfaces. It’s also a great way to ensure you are not overusing your chemical cleaning product.

What Makes Microfiber Such A Powerful Cleaner?

Microfiber Cotton Comparison

Our microfiber has a split end making it extremely effective at picking up dust and liquids.

Microfiber is Extremely Small

Microfiber is extremely small, about 1/100th the diameter of a human hair, giving it more fibers working together as a team to pick up dust, dirt, and debris. Just imagine approximately 200,000 fibers in a square inch cleaning your surface! It is  even small enough to remove bacteria and other germs from your floors and surfaces.

Microfiber Attracts Dust & Holds Contaminants Effectively

Microfiber acts as a dust magnet. Since its fibers are positively charged and dust is negatively charged, microfiber products are great at holding what they pick up. Our microfibers are split, meaning they have extra spaces on the head of each fiber. This creates extra grooves on each head to pick up surface contaminants.

Microfiber Is Absorbent & Porous

Because microfiber is lightweight it is extremely absorbent and porous. This gives it the ability to hold up to 7 times its own weight in liquid, while being able to dry fast. Thus it is the ideal tool for cleaning up multiple spills.

Microfiber Is Durable

Our microfiber products last through hundreds of washings, and come with complete care instructions to ensure their quality.

Don’t spend anymore money on products that are harmful to your health. Check out some of the best microfiber towels, mops, and dusters today!

 

 

3 Reasons Why Microfiber Makes The Best House Cleaning Products

Microfiber Towels Best House Cleaning Products For Homeowners And Professional Cleaners

Use Microfiber Towels to make your kitchen counters and appliances free of dirt and grime!

Your counters a sparkling, your floors are spotless, the clutter is gone, and you can finally breathe in that crisp fresh air. That’s the feeling of a freshly cleaned home, and there’s nothing like it! That’s why choosing the best house cleaning products is so important.

The dilemma? Getting there is another story. Cleaning is hard work. It’s tedious, and puts stress on your body from all the repetitive motions, crouching, kneeling, tip-toeing, etc. For all the great and rewarding benefits of cleaning, it sure seems like a chore that nobody would ever want to do.

Professional Cleaners Will Tell You- Microfiber Products Are The Best House Cleaning Products

Microfiber is loved by professional cleaners both residential and commercial. You probably already know it cleans great, but what if I told you it is more than just a great cleaner? There are many benefits of using microfiber products, but we’ll give you just 3 of the reasons why professional cleaners love them.

Microfiber Cleans Without The Use Of Chemicals

“Hazardous”, “Use With Caution”, “Warning”, read the labels on many of our daily chemical cleaners and you’ll notice these words in bold! Constant exposure to chemical cleaners can be bad for your health. So why pay for something that can hurt you, both physically and financially?

Microfiber Glass Cleaning Towels For Windows And Mirrors

Our easy-to-use Microfiber Glass Cleaning Pack, gives you a clear and streak free surface in just two simple steps. Get one as low as $9.98.

With Microfiber products, you get clear and streak free windows and mirrors by just using water. How? Because of the large quantity of fibers, and their natural squeegee like ability to scrape up dirt and liquids. Take our Microfiber Glass Cleaning Pack for example. They are much more effective than a typical spray-and-wipe method for 2 reasons.

  1. You don’t have to carry around large squeegees
  2. Squeegees don’t pick up dirt. They just lift it off the surface, that’s why many times there are left over lingering streaks. Microfiber lifts and stores the streak causing dirt within its fibers.

Microfiber Is Easy On Your Joints

What if I told you cleaning didn’t have to be that hard? Does your hand hurt after scrubbing, or your joints start to ache from kneeling or crouching? The worst part about cleaning is how tedious some of the tasks can be. Because of microfiber’s great ability to lift dirt and pick up dust, you’ll spend less time performing scrubbing and cleaning motions with your wrists and hands. Microfiber is also lightweight. This can make a huge difference for tasks, such as mopping, since the fibers glide rather than drag.

Compare our Microfiber Mop System to a conventional cotton wet mop, and it’s obvious to see why professional cleaners choose microfiber flat mops! How do microfiber flat mops, such as our Microfiber Mop System, make mopping smooth and easy?

Microfiber Mop System

Our best selling Microfiber Mop System. Starting at $29.98!

  1. Microfiber glides rather than drags, that’s because there are so many fibers working as a team to pick up dirt and dust.
  2. You no longer need to carry a mop bucket around when mopping. Just dampen the wet mop pad, and you’re good to go.
  3. Our Microfiber Mop System comes with a swivel, making it extremely maneuverable around your house!
  4. Our Microfiber Mop System is ergonomic, so you’ll always clean comfortably and easily.

What’s The Secret To Microfiber? Microfiber Products Just Clean Better!

Buf Pro Multi Surface Cleaning Cloth

Our 12″ x 12″ Buff™ Pro Multi Surface Cleaning Cloths, work great on any surface and any cleaning task! Starting as low $0.60 each.

The success of microfiber lies in its nature. Microfiber by nature acts as a dust magnet, since it is positively charged, and dust is negatively charged. The fibers are also extremely small, 1/100th the diameter of a human hair, and microfiber is even small enough to pick up many germs and bacteria! With that in mind, can you imagine how many fibers are working together when you clean your counters with a microfiber towel? And because microfiber is lightweight, it is able to quickly absorb liquids and take care of spills immediately. Check out some of the best microfiber cloths for household cleaning, like our Buff™ Pro Multi-Surface Cleaning Towels.  They’ll clean and dry anything from you car, to your kitchens, mirrors, glass, and bathrooms.

Don’t make the mistake of cleaning with cotton towels. What advantage could you possibly have? Use the best house cleaning products, and choose microfiber for whatever you need to clean. If you don’t, can you really call it cleaning?

How Microfiber Can Help In The Cold & Flu Season

Microfiber A Healthy Alternative To Fight Household Pathogens

Microfiber For Cold and Flu Season

Are you living in a clean and healthy home? Obviously, you can’t see the millions of microorganisms that lurk on your countertops or inside dust, dirt, and debris. Household chemical cleaners are toxic, and according to a study by the American Journal of Infection Control, disinfectant wipes can end up spreading bacteria!

What you probably didn’t know is that microfiber is capable of removing unseen microbes, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and germs from your counter tops! Thus, microfiber a great way to cleanse your home this cold and flu season. It is also an environmentally friendly way of cleaning, doing all this with the use of just water.

Does Microfiber Really Work?

Microfiber Cotton Comparison

How can a cloth remove tiny organisms from my kitchen counter-tops?
Well, if you didn’t already know, microfiber is extremely small, so it actually picks up many microscopic materials, unlike many cotton towels. To give you some perspective on the size of microfiber, it’s approximately 1/100th the diameter of a human hair and 1/20th the diameter of a strand of silk. Those fibers are chemically split during manufacturing to change their shape giving them more surface area and allowing them to act like little shovels scooping up surface contaminants. Microfiber is also positively charged acting like a magnet to attract negatively charged dust, so it doesn’t just pick up materials, it is able to effectively store them.

Are You Really Cleaning? What you use to clean your home’s surfaces matters! If it doesn’t properly store and absorb materials, then you are just spreading the problem around your house. A good example of this is our home’s floors! Our floors collect a variety of dirt and debris, and are a high traffic area where small spills and food droppings go unnoticed, hence a breading ground for bacteria! Not to mention, we spread bacteria just by walking around our own homes. So having an important way of collecting and disposing of them is crucial to your home’s health, and that’s why microfiber products, such as our Microfiber Mop System, have become increasingly popular.

3 Ways Microfiber Cleanses Your Home

Buff™ Pro Antimicrobial Microfiber Towel with Fresche®

Disinfection is when you use a product that has been tested to kill the microscopic organisms on the label, including viruses and fungi.

In case you didn’t know there is a difference between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting (see details below), and microfiber can assist in all 3! Microfiber is a superior cleaner, able to remove extremely small dust, dirt, and debris, as well as microorganisms and allergens. It may not classify as a sanitizer, since sanitizers by definition must remove 99.99% of bacteria, but a study done at the UC Davis Medical Center are showing that Microfiber can remove up to 99% of bacteria! Safe to say, it’s still a great way to remove bacteria. Microfiber can also serve as an alternative way of disinfecting, which kills surrounding microorganisms, including viruses. Viruses are too small for microfiber to pick up. But viruses are usually attached to other substances, such as debris and other microorganisms, which microfiber can effectively pick up, remove, and dispose of, killing the virus in the wash. Regardless of whether you are looking for a cleaner, sanitizer, or disinfectant, microfiber is a great choice to rid the surfaces in your home of harmful microorganisms.

  1. Cleaning: Removes debris, dirt, or dust. Cleaning removes allergens and microorganisms.
  2. Sanitizing: Reduce bacteria on a surface by 99.9%. Sanitizers do not kill viruses or fungi.
  3. Disinfecting: Disinfection is when you use a product that has been tested to kill the microscopic organisms on the label, including viruses and fungi.

A Safer, Greener, and Healthier Choice: Chemical Free Cleaner

Microfiber A Chemical Free Cleaner

With microfiber products, you can effectively fight bacteria and other pathogens without any chemical cleaners. As mentioned above, disinfectants kill pathogens. But they come with a cost, many ,being chemical cleaners, are hazardous to humans. When you continually clean with chemical cleaners, you are continually being exposed to hazardous and synthetic chemicals. Thus, there are a variety of chemical cleaner related health problems. Ever gotten light-headed after bleaching your bathroom? Or gotten a headache from being exposed to too much chemical sprayers and aerosols? It’s also worth mentioning that these hazards are increased dramatically when you mix them together by using them in the same space.

Microfiber doesn’t kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other microbes the way chemical cleaners do. Instead it physically removes them from your surfaces and stores them with its incredible amount of surface area, with the use of only water! To destroy the microbes, all you need to do is effectively wash or rinse them out of your microfiber.

Microfiber also offers a more environmentally friendly cleaning and sanitizing solution! It is machine washable, meaning it doesn’t end up polluting our oceans and landfills like disposable wipe alternatives. There is also no chemical run-off, and harmful chemicals do not get into the air, since it only uses water to clean.

One Good Thing

  • Take your shoes off.
  • Get rid of dirt and grime with a vacuum or dust mop before you attempt to wash a wood floor.
  • For occasional deep cleaning (dirt, oil, and grime will build up over time), the best solution for cleaning wood floors is one cup vinegar mixed with one gallon of water.

Better Decorating Bible

  • For a natural hardwood flooring cleaner, mix 1 part water, 1 part vinegar, 1 part rubbing alcohol, 1 tablespoon of dishwashing detergent and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Then using a mop, wipe up your floors for gleaming, super clean, and lovely smelling flooring.
  • Do not keep your floors wet for long, make sure to wipe them up and dry them as good as you can to avoid water damage. Do not wash them often – vacuuming or dusting is enough to keep them looking great.
  • Avoid installing hardwood floors just because they may be trendy in the bathroom or on the kitchen. Lots of traffic and water prone areas are a disaster for hardwood floors. Stick to wood-like tiles or laminate flooring.

In My Own Style

  • Make sure to have door mats by every door that enters the house. This way anyone entering can wipe their shoes off which will lessen dirt, leaves and other outdoor debris from entering the house.
  • Use mop on a regular basis. These make cleaning the floor super easy and they add just the right amount of cleaner/water to the floor.  Other mops allow too much water to get on the floor which is not a good thing for the wood. Bonus:  Kids have fun using these mops so they won’t think it a chore if you ask them to help you clean the floor.
  • Place felt furniture glides on all furniture legs, especially kitchen and dining chairs that you use on a daily basis. Adding these will prevent wear marks from happening on the floor from repetitive use. They are inexpensive and easy to simply stick or nail on to each leg.  I like the felt-style glider pads the best, as I find the plastic-style tend to leave marks on the floor.

My Thirty Spot

  • Never use a lot of liquid or water to clean your hardwood floors, it can absorb the water and they can warp over time. If you are going to mop your floors, wring out your mop until it is just damp and you should be good to go.
  • A perfect cloth to clean your wood floors is a cloth diaper. It can be used dry or damp for the perfect fabric to clean and absorb dirt.
  • If it is possible, try not to wear shoes on your wood floors. Dirt can scratch your floors and grime can make them so dirty.
