Color Coding Microfiber at Home

I should really buy stock in Morton’s because I take everything with a grain of salt. If I was Morton-Saltreading a blog that tried to convince me that I needed different colored microfiber cleaning cloths to clean my house, I’d assume the person writing it was just trying to convince me that I need more cloths. Of course I am… but cut me some slack, I’ve got a family to feed and I sell a product that’s inexpensive and lasts for a really, really long time. Too long if you ask our accountant.

Kidding aside, I’m about to suggest that you use different colored cloths for different areas and different tasks, but despite what I said above my motivation isn’t really to get you to buy something you don’t need. Our pricing is quantity based, but you can combine colors to get to a price break. So, it makes no difference to us if you buy 5 each of 5 different colors for 25 total cloths or 25 of one color. It’s the same price. So, now that we all understand there’s really no financial motivation for selling different colors hopefully we can put that salt back in the shaker and you’ll continue reading with an open mid.

Why Color Code?

Color coding is an easy way to prevent transferring bacteria from one area to another. This is known as cross contamination, and even professional cleaners take careful steps in order to prevent cross contamination. Cross contamination causes infections. Preventing cross contamination is a big part of commercial cleaning (in fact, I just wrote an article on the subject for Cleaning and Maintenance Management Magazine). It’s also an important part of cleaning in hospitals and it should be important in your home. Think about it, you probably wouldn’t use a cleaning cloth on a toilet and then go use it to wipe down your kitchen counters, at least not on purpose. But how can you be sure that you’re not doing that? Mistakes happen.

Color coding can prevent that. You should use at least three colors of microfiber cleaning cloths. Use one color in the kitchen, another color in the restroom, especially to wipe down your toilet, and a third color for general cleaning in the rest of the house.

We have lots of colors of our 16×16 All Purpose Microfiber Towels. Pick 3 or 4 and stick with them. While the color coding program you implement can be custom to you, here’s a common color designation:

  • Red: Restrooms
  • Green: Kitchen
  • Blue: General cleaning and dusting

Color Coded Microfiber Towels

Here’s another thing to think about; laundering your cleaning cloths. We all know that bleach shortens the life of textiles and microfiber is no different. However, bleach is a great disinfectant and if you’re concerned about sanitizing your microfiber cloths you might try using a small amount of bleach when laundering your restroom cloths. Just understand that using bleach will wear the cloths out faster than just using detergent. You can wash them separately or use a pre-wash cycle with a small amount of bleach before adding in the rest of your microfiber. Only using bleach on your restroom cloths will prevent the rest of the cloths from wearing out prematurely.

Cross Out Contamination…

Check out the April issue Cleaning and Maintenance Management Magazine for our article on using microfiber to prevent cross contamination in commercial cleaning applications. Here’s the link. Below is an infographic that we created on the subject:

Using Microfiber to Prevent Cross Contamination

As you can see, there is a lot that goes into preventing cross contamination. It’s important to teach cleaning professionals why preventing cross contamination is important, in addition to how to actually do it. The colors are not set in stone, you can customize them to suit your needs, but again, as a guideline, here are the colors we recommend:

  • Red: Sanitary Appliances
  • Yellow: Other Restroom Fixtures
  • Green: Kitchen and Food Prep Areas
  • Blue: Low Risk Areas like offices, classrooms and common areas.

Remember, it’s also important to keep your equipment clean and mind how you handle the dirty and the clean microfiber!

 

Prevent Glass Streaks Sample Kit

Prevent Glass streaking when Cleaning Windows and Mirrors

A streaky window is not a clean window. There’s nothing more frustrating than putting time and effort into cleaning windows just to find streaks everywhere. Microfiber Wholesale’s system of dual microfiber towels produce sparkling, spotless windows and mirrors in a fast, efficient manner. Say goodbye to streaks for good!

This process is complete in just a few easy steps.

First, wet the green cloths in the sink and wring them out. You want them damp, but not dripping. Then take the green cloth in one hand and wipe down the glass. Next, take the blue glass cloth in your other hand, dry the glass. Do it quick before the glass dries on its own!

That’s it. You’re done. Your streaks are gone and you just cleaned your glass in seconds without breathing in chemicals or wasting paper towels!

The reason this works so much better than the spray and wipe method is the first cloth cleans and the second cloth dries. When you’re spraying and wiping you’re trying to pick up soil and dry in one pass. It doesn’t work. The streaks you see is the soil that gets left behind and smeared on the glass. Our method really doesn’t take much more time but it does a much better job, guaranteed!
