Microfiber is a well-known item in the modern world and it has various uses especially for cleaning and dusting. These fibers are made out of polyamide or polyester and their diameter is about 1/100-the of that of an average human hair or even lesser.
When woven together to form a towel, these fibers can be used very effectively for cleaning, drying or dusting operations.
This happens because when properly weaved the microfiber forms a hook-like structure which captures dust or grime particles in them.
In addition, these fibers are also positively charged which attracts negatively charged dust particles resulting in better cleaning.
These towels are lightweight and long lasting and do not shrink or deform with usage. Compared to standard cotton towels, microfiber last longer and cleans much better.
The best part about this technology is that they can clean and polish a surface at the same time.
They are very cheap in price and being long lasting makes them even more economical. So while buying a microfiber towel you need to keep a few points in mind so that you could choose the best item.
Microfiber towel buyer’s guide
There are a variety of Microfiber towels available in the market suited or for various purposes. So before you pick one, it is best to go through a few guidelines about the same.
Nature of use
The Microfiber that you buy should be in line for your purpose of use as each type is specialized for specific uses. If you are trying to clean your car, you should choose a thicker towel that can absorb water. For home cleaning purposes you can use both thick ones and the thinner ones for polishing glass.
If you are planning to clean electronic goods, thinner and softer towels are the best option. You may also use one as a bath towel which is also a good use for microfiber.
Density and weight
These towels are rated in GSM and higher the GSM value, the thicker and softer the towel will be. A heavier towel is costlier but will also last longer.
If you have two towels of the same size, the heavier one will be of a higher quality. A general purpose towel can be put to a varied number of domestic uses and if you have no specific needs, you can choose such towel.
In a microfiber, the polyester does the cleaning while the polyamide absorbs liquids. So the right balance of both is needed for proper cleaning as needed.
So any towel with low polyamide content will be poor in absorbing liquids and this is a good reason for rejecting them.
A towel with a rough edge can scratch delicate surfaces or paints, leaving you disappointed. So while buying a microfiber towel, make sure that the edges are smooth or rolled or else covered by some other material. That way you can clean any surface without damaging it.
It should be remembered that good quality towels will not come at a cheaper price. The better weave and blend that you seek the more you will have to pay. Production of the right fibres that will work as needed is done through an expensive process so before you buy to make sure that they are of the right quality.
