4 reasons you should switch to microfibre cloths

In recent years, the use of microfibre cloths has become increasingly popular in households and commercial settings for cleaning surfaces. Microfibre cloths are made of synthetic materials and are designed to be more effective than traditional cotton cleaning cloths.

Microfiber cloths are better for the environment than regular cotton cleaning cloths because they offer a more eco-friendly cleaning solution. Additionally, microfiber cloths are more absorbent than traditional cloths, meaning they can absorb more liquid and dirt with less effort.

Our cloths are also reusable, meaning they can be washed and used again and again, reducing the amount of waste generated from single-use cloths. Microfibre cloths are durable and don't leave behind any lint or residue, they can be used on a variety of surfaces without damaging them.

Finally, microfibre cloths are much more cost-effective than traditional cloths, as they don’t require as much water or cleaning products to be used.

1.0 Water Conservation

We all want to do our bit for the conservation of the planet! Small eco conscious wins here and there go a long way in todays world. Microfibre cloths require less water to clean surfaces compared to cotton cloths.

This is because the tiny fibres in microfiber cloths are capable of holding up to seven times their weight in water. Therefore, less water is required to clean surfaces, which conserves water resources. Water is a precious resource, and conserving it is essential for the environment. A win not only for the environment but also for the user...no need to fuss around with chemicals.

2.0 Chemical-Free Cleaning

Volatile Organic Compounds and other chemicals released when using cleaning supplies contribute to chronic respiratory problems, allergic reactions and headaches. Research surrounding the adverse affects of chemical cleaning has called for non toxic cleaning cloths to lead the market.

Microfibre cloths can clean surfaces without the need for harsh chemicals. Unlike cotton cloths, microfiber cloths are capable of removing dirt, dust, and grime without leaving any residue or streaks. As a result, there is no need for chemical cleaners, which can be harmful to the environment.

Traditional cleaning products often contain harsh chemicals that are not only harmful to the environment but also to human health. By using microfibre cloths, we can reduce our dependence on chemical cleaners and create a healthier living environment.

3.0 Durability

Another significant advantage of using microfibre cloths is that they are durable and reusable. Microfibre cloths are made from synthetic materials that are designed to be more durable than cotton cloths. They are also designed to be washed and reused multiple times, reducing waste and the need for disposable cleaning products.

Our chemical-free cleaning cloths can be washed upwards of 400+ times before needing to be replaced. In contrast, cotton cloths are more likely to wear out quickly and need to be replaced frequently, leading to more waste.

There are two main types of microfibre: split microfibre and flat microfibre. Our cloth is made with Split microfibre, which is more durable and effective at trapping dirt and debris. Flat microfibre on the other hand, is smoother and less effective at trapping debris. 

The quality of the microfibre cloth also plays a role in its durability. Higher-quality cloths typically have a higher fibre density and tighter weave, making them more durable and long-lasting. Cheaper, lower-quality cloths may fall apart or lose their effectiveness more quickly.  

4.0 Reduces Waste

Finally, microfibre cloths can help reduce waste in the environment. By using reusable microfibre cloths instead of disposable cotton cloths we can significantly reduce the amount of global waste. Additionally, microfibre cloths are often packaged using eco-friendly materials, such as cardboard or paper, which can be recycled. Opting to use a cleaning cloth with multiple uses also reduces landfill.

In conclusion, microfibre cloths are a sustainable and eco-friendly cleaning solution that offers many advantages over traditional cotton cleaning cloths. By conserving water resources, eliminating the need for harsh chemicals and reducing waste we can help protect the environment.
