The microfiber cloth is one of the most important accessories for automotive aesthetics. But not all microfiber cloths are the same.
A specific fabric for a specific use.
But what kind of microfiber towel should you use to do the job you have to do?
What for? Simply because of its efficiency and versatility in wet and dry conditions. If properly maintained, microfibers can also be used continuously.
However, there is some confusion about how to use microfiber towels, wash them and dry them.
Generally, microfiber cloths can be used for a long time, but only if they need to be properly cleaned and maintained. When washing most microfiber products, there are 3 main rules to follow. Improper cleaning of these towels will prevent them from fulfilling their role.
Cold water only
When placed in hot water, the material that makes up the microfiber cloth shrinks. To avoid damaging the fabric, use only cold water and a mild detergent for cleaning.
Do not use softener or bleach.
Positive and negative charges are some of the reasons why a microfiber cloth can easily attract dirt. Dirt contains negative charges, and ultrafine fibers generate positive charges, so the opposite sexes attract. Bleaching agents reduce the positive charge in the tissue. In addition, fabric softeners not only have the same effect, but also reduce the ability of towels to absorb water and dirt.
Heat and microfiber are like oil and water, they do not mix. A high-temperature dried microfiber cloth will destroy the polyester. This also makes the fabric more prone to scratches. Air drying is usually the best way to dry them, but if you're using a dryer, use a low-temperature program.
