4 Simple Microfiber Cloth Cleaning Tips – Eco Friendly, No Chemicals Needed!

Microfiber Cloth Cleaning Tips

If you have microfiber cloths here are 4 simple microfiber cloth cleaning tips you can start doing right away ! They’ll make your cleaning easy, efficient, and effective, and the best part is you don’t even need chemical cleaners or other cleaning products. If you are looking for how to wash or clean microfiber, check this post out instead (How to wash microfiber).

1. Clean Green and Eco-Friendly! Use Water

Did you know that microfiber has been proven to clean great with just water? That’s because microfiber is extremely small, 1/100th the diameter of a human hair to be exact, and some microfiber is even smaller than that! This means that microfiber can effectively pick up a variety of dust, dirt, debris, and even bacteria all by itself. The water helps to break down the substances. Not only will this save you money on chemical cleaners, but it is a much healthier and more eco-friendly way to clean too! To learn more about just how microfiber and water can clean so great together, check out this article.

2. Avoiding Disposable Options By Folding Your Towels

Always fold your towel once or twice to ensure you have multiple cleaning sides of the towel. This way you can make sure you are always using a clean side of the towel. You can even dampen one side with water to clean and dry with the other side! This tip is a great way to ensure you aren’t unecessarily using paper towels or disposable wipes.

3. Light To Heavy Duty Cleaning

Microfiber is great at picking things up, but it’s also very porous too! This means simply rinsing out the towel is a great way to rid it of the dirty water you absorbed while cleaning. Always clean your lightly soiled surfaces first, then rinse your towel and move onto the more heavy duty tasks. Doing this will avoid using extra microfiber towels. Now that’s cleaning smarter not harder!

4. Prevent Cross Contamination: Color-Coding

Color coding is a great way to ensure you aren’t cross contaminating. Doing so can result in less use of chemical cleaners and having to wash your microfiber towels less often. It’s best to always have a system in place, if you need some tips or ideas on how to do this check out our guide.

Conclusion: Microfiber Cloths Make Cleaning Easy

Microfiber is great for so many reasons, the above are just a few. If you are in need of some microfiber cloths, we specialize in microfiber cloths made for professional cleaners. That doesn’t mean if you don’t clean for a living, that you shouldn’t buy our products. It does mean that we guarantee our microfiber cloths are high quality. Here’s a link to our Microfiber Towels

How Long Does Microfiber Last?

It’s become common among microfiber distributors to say that their towels or mop pads last hundreds of machine washings. If you’ve used different microfiber products, or read reviews online, you know this statement may or may not be true. That’s because like anything else, not all microfiber products are the same quality.

Wash Tested Microfiber Products

We wanted to clear up any questions about the quality of our products. As a company that provides professional cleaners with microfiber, we know how important durability is in your everyday cleaning. To do this, we had some of our most popular microfiber towels and mop pads wash tested to see just how effective they were after hundreds of machine washings. We ran 3 tests with each product and based the results on the average of how well they absorbed after each wash interval. You can see the results below! Or here are the results for each product directly from Precision Testing Laboratories Inc.

4-Ply Microfiber for Face Masks

In the past week, we at Microfiber Wholesale have been overwhelmed with phone calls, emails, and web chats asking about 4-Ply microfiber for face masks. We’re  aware of several articles and blog posts referencing testing done by the US Army that indicates that 4-ply microfiber is the best readily available material to use for homemade face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We, like many of you, were wondering what 4-ply microfiber is. Microfiber is most commonly measured by its weight in GSM (grams per square meter). Microfiber is not measured in ply because it’s most often a woven material, not layers of material bonded together like a paper towel or plywood.

I searched for the answer to the 4-ply microfiber mystery via google and the big box stores and was unable to find it anywhere. I looked through the Army’s press releases hoping to find clarification or a contact information so I could get more information but could not find either. So, I did what any other reasonably intelligent person would do, I began to speculate.

The most reasonable guess as to what 4-ply microfiber means is four pieces of microfiber cloth layered together and fashioned into a homemade face mask. Microfiber comes in a variety of different weights and densities and we have no way of knowing what type of microfiber the Army used in its tests. Two layers of a 300 GSM towel have the same weight as three layers of a 200 GSM cloth. Because we’re unable to actually test the effectiveness of four layers of microfiber for preventing the spread of airborne pathogens, we simply checked to see which four layers of microfiber cloths we were able to breath through.

Our Buff Pro Multi-Surface Microfiber Towel is the heaviest (320 GSM) cloth we tried. When four layers were placed firmly over the nose and mouth, it was not easy or comfortable to breathe through. However, one layer was as comfortable as breathing through a surgical mask. The next was our Economy All Purpose Microfiber Towel. Four layers of the economy 250 GSM towel was much easier to breathe through than the thicker Buff Pro towel. Our favorite four-layer face mask towel was hands down the 200 GSM MWipe. The 100 GSM non-woven Disposable Microfiber Towel was nearly impossible to breathe through.

In a nutshell, we’re not sure what 4-ply microfiber is and haven’t been able to find any more information on it than any other person. We’re following the CDC recommendations and using masks when social distancing is too difficult. We hope you all are healthy and safe.

We’re Open

We are open! We’re shipping our orders with our normal lead time which means many orders ship the same day and nearly all shipping by the next business day.

Microfiber Wholesale is a distributor of microfiber cleaning & disinfecting supplies operating in CA. Our specific type of business falls within the exemptions as described within Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-33-20, including maintaining continuity of the operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors, government services, healthcare, childcare and construction industries.

Here’s what we’re doing:

All office staff is working from home – We’ve had no change in our responsiveness to our customers, except that we’ll be talking on the phone with you in our pajamas. Everyone is excited to save on gasoline and not fighting Southern California traffic, but bummed that we won’t be able to see each other every day.

Our order picking and shipping department are be open, but we’ve modified how we operate. Instead of everybody working at the same time, we’ve split them into shifts so we can minimize how much they’re interacting with each other.

We’re temporarily suspending our custom towel printing production. I decided that this was a part of the business that should be paused since it’s so labor intensive. The employees that worked in this department are staying home, with full pay.

We have good inventory on most of our popular items. We were well stocked before the outbreak in China, and our manufacturing partners have all been back up and running since mid to late February. We have good stock here, and much more microfiber on the way!

Will called orders are suspended. To decrease the amount of people we’re interacting with all orders will be shipped.

We’re working on some great content. We plan on continuing to send our useful info centered on disinfecting so stay tuned. We’re so grateful to our customers who are subject matter experts and are willing to share their knowledge with us and our customers (I’m looking at you Melissa Homer from MaidPro and you Joanna Martin from Winston Salem Cleaning Service). Here are links to some of the information we’ve put out over the last several weeks.

Protecting Yourself From COVID-19 with Melissa Homer from MaidPro

We at Microfiber Wholesale have been fielding many questions on how to properly clean and disinfect and what methods and products will get rid of COVID-19. Melissa Homer, Chief Cleaning Officer at MaidPro, is a wealth of expert information on all things cleaning and disinfecting. She’s been gracious enough to allow us to share her training video that would normally only be available to MaidPro employees. It is full of vital information for cleaning professionals and is also a great resource for those of us that are concerned with making our homes and offices as germ free as possible. We are very excited to be able to share this video with you. So, if you’re a professional cleaner, or just someone who wants to know everything there is to know about disinfecting a home, this video is for you.

How to Disinfect with Bleach & Other Products

How To Kill A Virus With Disinfectants

Much like all of you, we at Microfiber Wholesale are watching and waiting as the COVID-19 situation continues to develop in our communities. We wanted to take this opportunity to share some information that we’ve culled from sources like the WHO, CDC and EPA as well as trusted brands like Clorox and Lysol on how to kill a virus and disinfect your homes and workplaces with products you most likely already have. This will help slow the spread of the virus by preventing unnecessary trips to the store for supplies and contact with others.

As noted by the CDC, cleaning and disinfecting are two different things. Cleaning is the removal of dirt, debris and bacteria from surfaces. Microfiber does this well with just water as the dirt clings to the fabric but using a cotton cloth with water and a bit of detergent is acceptable as well. Disinfecting uses a chemical agent to kill germs or bacteria. Both the WHO and CDC recommend using chlorine bleach as a disinfecting agent. It is recommended that surfaces be cleaned prior to disinfecting. 

Allow Proper Dwell Time

One of the keys to disinfecting, and one that is so often overlooked, is dwell or contact time. According to Becker Hospital Review, the best way to ensure that your disinfectant is effective is to make sure that the surface remains visibly wet for the full recommended contact time. EPA approved disinfecting agents will have the recommended contact time listed on their labels. Clorox recommends a 5 minute contact time for their regular bleach. This means that once the surface has been cleaned, in order to disinfect, the bleach solution (half a cup of bleach for every gallon of water) would need to remain wet for five minutes before being wiped away and air dried. Lysol’s products have similar recommendations. It is not effective to simply take a wipe and run it across your door knobs and light switches.

Natural or Chemical Products?

Aside from bleach, the CDC also mentions an alcohol solution of at least 70% alcohol. Household disinfectants are also effective, as long as the label instructions are followed. While vinegar is a natural alternative that can be used as a disinfectant, it is not as effective as common chemical disinfectants such as bleach, alcohol or household disinfectants from trusted brands.

To Kill Viruses On Surfaces

For hard flat surfaces, like floors, countertops and tables, soak your mop or cloth in the disinfectant solution and wring it out slightly, just so it’s not dripping. Apply the solution and leave it on for five minutes and then rinse with clean water and let it air dry. For more challenging surfaces, like door knobs, cabinet, appliance or drawer handles, spray on the solution or simply wrap your treated towel around the surface to let the chemical do its job. Use a clean cloth for each surface area and do not put a soiled cloth back in your solution.

Recommended Microfiber For Disinfecting

Microfiber alone will not disinfect a surface. As noted above disinfecting involves the killing of the pathogens. That doesn’t mean microfiber can’t assist in the disinfecting process. In fact in an article by Infection Control Today ”  microfiber was both laboratory and clinically tested and proven to remove up to 98 percent of bacteria and 93 percent of viruses from a surface using only water (no chemicals). ” So when paired with a disinfectant product, microfiber can be a great weapon against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.

If you are looking for microfiber to help in the disinfecting process, we rec commend using MWipes™. That’s because they are more absorbent than other disposable options, while still be cost-effective enough to throw away after one-time use. They are machine washable as well, so depending on what you used them for this can be a great option. Learn more about MWipes™.

It is important during this pandemic that we remain calm and take what precautions to stay well that we can. Making sure that your home and office environments stay cleaned and sanitized is something effective that we can all participate in. We’re all in this together.

Buff™ Pro Microfiber Towels – What You Need To Know!

It was our goal to provide Professional Cleaners and household cleaning enthusiasts with a better microfiber towel, without costing them a fortune. We can confidently say that with over 1.7 K reviews on Amazon, and our most popular selling product on our website, that we’ve reached that goal! So what makes Buff™ Pro Microfiber Towels different?

Tested For Durability

How long do microfiber towels last? While we can’t speak for competing brands, we wanted to make sure our towels kept their effectiveness through hundreds of machine launderings. To do this we had Precision Testing Laboratories Inc. machine wash our microfiber towels up to 250 times! We are proud to say after 250 machine washings our towels remained 87% as effective as they were when received. So if you are washing your towels once a week, these towels should stay effective for about 5 years! You can see the results directly from the lab here, or review our chart below.

Tested For Quality

Yes we’ve tested for quality too! A high-quality microfiber cloth should be soft, absorbent, and have great cleaning power (able to attract dust and dirt like a magnet). In fact, many of our customers love using these towels to clean with just plain water! While things like softness and how much dust is picked up aren’t easy to put a numeric value on, we did run some tests comparing them to other top brands on Amazon. Check out our short clip below

The Secret? Intra Weave

What is Intra Weave? Intra Weave is what gives Buff™ Pro the added microfiber to make a softer, more absorbent, and better cleaning towel, as seen in the video above. How does it work? Well Most microfiber towels have their microfiber woven into a 100% polyester ground fabric. Buff™ Pro Microfiber Towels have their microfiber woven into a 50% Polyester 50% Microfiber blend ground fabric, thus giving the towel more microfiber! To learn more about how Intra Weave works, check out our chart below.

Responsibly Sourced Microfiber

We believe in sourcing our products responsibly and that starts by choosing the best manufacturers. Quality is as important to us as it is with our manufacturers, and we want our customers to know that. Learn more about our manufacturers and how they do business (Go To Article)

What Can I Use Them For?

Our Buff™ Pro Microfiber Towels  can be used on pretty much anything! Use them to remove gunk off your counters, dust shelves, remove streaks on glass, polish your stainless steel, dry your car, etc. Our customers use these towels so many different ways that we believe telling you how to use them limits your creativity. If you need some ideas though, check out this video. We offer these towels in a variety of colors and sizes, and we even have an antimicrobial option.

How to Clean Wood Furniture Safely! Remove Dust, Grime, Mold, & Mildew

How To Clean Wood Furniture

Looking for a quick, effective, and safe solution on how to clean wood furniture? Consider using microfiber cloths to remove dust, dirt, grime, even mold! The smooth, small fibers of microfiber will ensure no damage comes to your wood furniture, while also effectively absorbing any dirt and water on the surface. Here are the most effective ways of cleaning wood furniture:

Use A Microfiber Cloth To Dust

Dusting your wood furniture with a microfiber cloth is the easiest thing in the world. The split fibers of microfiber help to instantly trap dust as you wipe down your furniture. You won’t need any extra cleaning products or even water for a dust-free home! When dusting make sure you are using an all-purpose type microfiber towel (Fluffy) type. The longer “fluffier” fibers of these towels has extra space to hold dust.

In case you were wondering why microfiber is so good at trapping dust, most dust particles range in size from 1 to 100 micrometers in diameter. A microfiber is smaller than 10 micrometers, and high quality microfiber used in cleaning usually ranges between 1 and 5 micrometers. This means that microfiber is able to effectively pick up most dust particles. Microfiber is also positively charged, so it clings to negatively charged dust particles!

Removing Sticky Grime

On the other hand, you’ll want to dampen your microfiber towel with a bit of water before wiping grime from your wood furniture. The water will help loosen-up and dissolve the grime and the microfiber will suck up the dirt. Be sure to finish the job by wiping a dry microfiber over the area you cleaned, as you don’t want any remnants of water damaging your wood. This is the simplest and safest way for how to clean grime off wood furniture.

Clean and Dust Wood Furniture Naturally With Green Microfiber Towel

Deep Cleaning

To thoroughly clean tougher filth and grime from your wooden furniture, try adding a touch of soap to your microfiber towel. Ideally you’ll want to use a soap meant for cleaning wood. If you are using dish soap, test it out first. Add it to a damp cloth and wipe over a small hidden section of the furniture, to make sure the soap doesn’t harm the finish on your wood. Then, you can combine a small amount of your soap with water and use the mixture to clean your wood with the microfiber cloth. Again, keep an eye on the amount of water on your wood, and quickly wipe away wet areas with a dry microfiber towel.

If you want to know how to clean wood furniture naturally with vinegar, you can combine ¼ cup of vinegar, two teaspoons of olive oil, and a cup of water in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle and spray the mixture onto your cloth before wiping down your wood furniture.

Mold Or Mildew?

If your wood furniture has light mold or mildew, the above steps will work just fine. The most important thing to remember is to thoroughly dry. This helps ensure the mold does not grow back. You also might want to use a disposable microfiber cloth when cleaning, to ensure you won’t be cross contaminating.  For heavier or stronger mold and mildew, you’ll need to use much stronger products that need to be used with extreme caution, so you will not damage the wood. If you are looking to clean heavy mold check out this guide here or seek a mold removal professional.

For Old or Antique Wood Furniture

If you want to know how to clean old or antique wood furniture, there are a few things you really need to pay extra attention to. First, always, use the most mild soaps as possible. For example, dish soaps used for hand washing are more mild than ones used in dishwashers. It’s very important to properly dilute your soap, you might even want to dilute it a little extra. Make sure you do not use aggressive scrubbing motions when cleaning, rather use gentle wiping motions. Always wipe with the grain of the wood.

Polish Wax Wood Furniture Cabinets

Applying Finish – Polishing or Waxing?

When you want to upkeep the finish of your wood furniture, avoid spraying the wood with polish. Polish can cause discoloration in your wood and, eventually, will cause your wood to lose its luster. Instead, you’ll want to use furniture wax in conjunction with a microfiber towel. Not only will wax help improve the appearance of your wood, but it will give your furniture a protective coating to prevent scratches and smudges.

Before waxing, make sure you have taken the above steps. The last thing you want to do is trap the dirt in the wax. Consider using paste wax as it can protect your wood for as long as two years. Apply the wax to your furniture as directed, usually with a brush or with a microfiber cloth. Make sure you are applying a thin even coat. Let the wax dry and then buff the wood surface with your microfiber cloth. When buffing, the softer the microfiber cloth the better. We recommend using our Buff™ Pro Microfiber Towels. This should give your wood a shiny, like-new finish without causing any damage.

Conclusion

What’s the number one tip on how to clean wood furniture? Choose the right cleaning products! Using chemical cleaners can impact the look and feel of your wood over time, stripping it of its finish. The best ways for safely cleaning your wood furniture involve the least amount of products, such as using just water and a microfiber towel. Using minimal amounts of the right products will keep your wood lustrous for years to come!
