What is a Microfiber Cloth?

The word "microfiber," as you can imagine, means small fiber.  How small you ask?  I could go on and on using words such as denier, decitex, and micrometers, but who really knows THOSE words?  So instead of making you go to the web (unless you're smarter than me), I'll put it in layman's terms:  Most microfibers are about 1/5 of the diameter of a human hair.  These synthetic microfibers are most commonly made from polyester and polyamide.

The average 'normal' cleaning rag pushes dust and dirt around, causing smearing or even worse scratching.

The Microfiber cloth grabs dust/grime particles and soaks away liquid (even oil) with its fantastic wicking action.
