Yellow: Is traditionally used in more high-risk area’s e.g., to clean up bodily fluids.


However, the way you colour code your microfibre cloths is completely personal. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. Just ensure that all microfibre is stored away from other cloths or fabrics when not in use. This will avoid any transfer of lint, hair or dust transfer from other cloths as the fibre’s act as a magnet to any particles.
 

Storage of Microfibre Cloths

To further avoid your microfibre attracting unwanted fabric shedding from other clothing or materials around your home, it is suggested for you to store your microfibre in a close tight container away from other household cloths. Not only does this ensure cross contamination is kept to a minimum but also allows you to keep the cloths dry and easy to see.
