Microfiber Product Care

Microfiber Product Care

Microfiber refers to synthetic fibers that measure less than one denier. This means a single microfiber is about 200 times smaller than a single strand of human hair. When high-quality microfiber is combined with the right knitting process, it creates a highly effective cleaning material. Microfiber products can absorb and retain surface contaminants, including dust, liquids, and bacteria. According to tests, using microfiber to clean surfaces can reduce the number of bacteria by 99%, whereas conventional cleaning materials only reduce them by 33%.

Washing Instructions

Step 1 - Separate microfiber products from other fabrics. Mixing will cause the microfibers to become contaminated with excess lint.
Step 2 - Wash on no more than warm water settings. Microfiber has a melting point of 140°. Use a gentle liquid detergent free of dyes, scents, or fabric softeners. For maximum disinfecting, we recommend a small amount of bleach be added to the solution (<10%) to kill any bacteria in the towels. It should be noted that bleach will shorten the life of the towels. However, a small amount of bleach will only mildly affect product life. Use the extra rinse cycle when available.

Drying Instructions

Air drying is preferred. If machine drying, tumble dry (max temp 140° F). Do not use dryer sheets.

Red Microfiber Products

Due to the high amount of dye required to color red microfiber products, prewashing all red microfiber products before use is always recommended. Prewashing will help prevent excess bleeding from microfiber products during use. In general, 5-10 wash cycles will remove the majority of the excess dye, though the use of harsh chemicals will always leave the potential for further bleeding.
