Is microfiber really better than a regular cloth?



You don't have to look far to find recommendations to clean with microfiber cloths.

From windows to bathtubs to floors, cleaning experts continue to recommend this specific cleaning tool. So, why is it better? And how does it work? We asked Green Cleaning Coach Leslie Reichert, a longtime fan of microfiber, to tell us all about it.

Why use microfiber?
It saves money and outlasts other cleaning cloths.
It's safe for the environment and cleans with water, not harmful chemicals.
It removes 99 percent of bacteria on surfaces.

All microfiber is not equal

“With microfiber, you get what you pay for,” Reichert said. “Bargain microfiber has fewer fibers, around 50,000 per square inch. Since it’s the fibers that do the work, bargain cloths do not clean as well as quality cloths, nor do they last as long — only about 50 washings. I use quality microfiber cloths like e-cloth. To me, it’s the gold standard in microfiber. It has 3.1 million fibers per square inch and lasts for 300 washings!”

How does microfiber work?

With millions of fibers, microfiber lifts and holds dirt, grease, grime, liquids and bacteria. These fibers include both positive-charged polyester fibers and negative-charged nylon fibers that actually attract and pull up whatever is on the surface you’re cleaning.
