What is a microfiber cloth made up from? The name says everything. Microfiber cloths are pile-up of fibres, which you cannot see with a naked eye. You will want to use a microscope. So microfiber means in simple words just micro or a tiny fibre.
Why microfiber cloths are so functional? Let’s elaborate more…….
Easily Catch Dirt
Microfiber cloths are crafted of very thin fabrics woven together. They can quickly catch even the tiniest grains of sand or dirt. To make it more functional, the cloth manufacturers split fibres into very fine strands, creating asterisk-like fibres.
Great At Absorbing Oil
Before you read on, imagine some of your polyester or nylon clothes. Will they easily ‘catch’ oil stains on their own self? I bet you said yes. Is it easy to rid of those stains? This time, your probable answer was no. With microfiber cloths, it is the same. Because they are crafted from a combination of polyamide and polyester, they'll absorb oil with the same easiness as a cloth fashioned out of comparable fabrics. Only in this situation, the oil absorption is something you are probably happier about.
Great At Absorbing Water
Microfiber cloths are the winners when it comes to water absorption. It is majorly owed to polyamide’s chemical properties, letting it generate hydrogen bonds with water. The cloths crafted out of microfibers can absorb as much as 98% of moisture.
Where new microfiber cloths are typically gentle on the surfaces, they can collect grit (loose particles of stone or sand) with regular use. So, you must be wary of using old microfiber cloths on your high-tech devices, like LCD screens.
