Too much nylon will result in a cloth that will scratch fine or delicate surfaces, like coated optics or fine wood or paint finishes.

Each filament of this sub miniature fiber, which is much thinner than a human hair, is split into many wedge-shaped strands, multiplying the surface area of and the osmosis/wicking power of each filament. With the proper combination of materials and the splitting of the already super fine fibers, these unique microfiber cleaning materials are created.
These fibers can be made into several types of cloths for different uses depending on how these fibers are knitted or woven together.

Microfiber works great when dry but even better if dampened with water or paired up with your favorite cleaning solution.  And because you can wash these cloths they will save you and our Earth a lot of "green"!
