Cleaning Tips for Microfiber Cloths:

April 13, 2010 | By Mandy Peterson

One of the advantages of microfiber cloths is that they can be washed and reused over and over literally hundreds of times. So here are a few tips for cleaning them:

For non-critical cleaning, you can wash cloths with normal wash machine load just avoid washing with anything that might be linty. Also, do not use bleach or fabric softeners in the washer or dryer. Air drying is a safe bet, but they can be safely dried at low heat in clothes dryer.

For more critical cleaning, wash the cloths separately either by hand or in a wash machine in warm water, adding a small amount of detergent. Do not use any bleach or fabric softener and rinse at least one extra time. Air dry or use a clothes dryer on low heat using no fabric softener.

To sanitize: A microfiber cloth may be boiled for 5-10 minutes to eliminate any bacteria that may form in the fibers. Microfiber cloths do an excellent job of picking up dust and removing smudges. They will even remove oily finger prints from a surface without spreading it around, without any additional cleaners.
