Microfiber towels and cloths are becoming more popular in business cleaning. 

Microfiber is used in everything, including car washes and janitorial service. It provides a quick and effective clean. 

To get the best performance, you must take care of your microfiber towels.

It is easy to wash your microfiber products, but you need to be careful. Use of the wrong detergents or settings in your washer can cause microfiber to become very damaged, especially if you use bleach. 

Why is Bleach so Bad for Microfiber Towels & Cloths

It may seem obvious to wash your microfiber towels with bleach, but it is not the best option. You use them to clean up dirt, grime and spillages. 

Car washing companies remove mud from cars, and janitors tend hygiene in hospitals and clinics so that towels and other cloths don't come into contact with dirt. They can't be cleaned as effectively by bleach, surely? 

Bleach is actually known to cause microfiber to become brittle. It can also erode the fibers and eventually destroy their high-performance adhesive properties. They won't give you the strong clean you need and will eventually wear out much faster. This means that you will have to replace them sooner than you would otherwise. 

What should you use instead of bleach? 

It is easy to clean your towels and microfiber cloths. First, don't use fabric softener. This can damage microfiber over time. 

Vinegar is also best avoided. While some people may prefer vinegar for laundering, its acidity can cause fibers to lose their shape. 

To remove stains from microfiber towels or cloths, you can use a small amount of dish detergent or laundry detergent. Use your fingers to rub it on both sides of the fabric. After that, let it work its magic for about five minutes before you wash them. 

Towels and microfiber cloths should only be washed in cold water. Hot water can cause damage to the fibers. Microfiber products should only be washed together with a non-bleaching detergent. They will clog if they are mixed with other fabrics, particularly those that produce lint. 

If time permits, you should air dry your towels and microfiber cloths. For a faster drying, hang them out of the sun or close to a window. If you have to dry them quickly, tumble dry them in low heat. 

Ironing microfiber cleaning materials can cause damage. Avoid using microfiber towels and cloths to remove oils, grease, or polish. This will reduce the chance of stubborn stains. They cannot be removed.
