INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING MICROFIBER CLOTHS

Applications For Microfiber Products
Dry Surface Cleaning

Use the cloth dry for dusting. The split microfibers in the cloth work like a magnet and by static electricity will attract and hold the dirt particles. Once finished dry dusting, rinse well and use the same cloth wet for heavily soiled areas.

Damp or Wet Surface Cleaning

The Glass cloth works best slightly dampened with water. Either sprinkle water on the entire cloth or wet half the cloth. In most cases there is no need to wipe the surface dry after the cloth has been used, as evaporation enables surfaces to air-dry to a lint and streak-free shine. You can also spray water directly on the surface to be cleaned and wipe with a dry cloth. (Note: if water marks appear, the cloth may have been too soiled or wet. Or the surface has a previous cleaning solution that needs to be removed.)

For heavier soiled areas, use the multi-purpose and waffle cloths wet, wring out well so there is room for dirt absorption. You don’t want it to be dripping as the cloth needs to have the capacity to absorb dirt and liquid from surfaces. (Remember, no cleaning solutions are required).

For car or outdoor windows, it is recommended to use the softer or waffle cloths first, then wipe to a shine with the glass cloth. To use the cloth effectively, fold the cloth twice so it has the shape of a square. You will then have several areas to use on each side of the cloth. Rinse the cloth in hot water when required.

Note: Since microfiber works so well to pick up dirt, if particles get trapped in fibers, they might cause scratches. Make sure your cloth is free of any debris before using on materials such as plastics, glass and other delicate surfaces. We recommend only using the flat glass cloth for sensitive surfaces.

HOW TO WASH AND CLEAN THE MICROFIBER

To improve the lifespan of the microfiber cloths it is necessary to care for them properly. Microfiber cleaning cloths are machine washable. Machine washes the cloths with hot water. Be sure to rinse well to remove the soap. Either air or tumble-dry. Do this when required or whenever the cloth looks soiled. Microfiber cloths can be machine washed hundreds of times and will last for several years when cared for properly. (Refer to the specs of each cloth for further details and the guarantee).

Important:

Be careful of what you wash microfiber with. Use regular washing detergent or enviro-safe detergent if possible. The microfiber cloths should not be washed with oily, self-softening soap-based detergents, conditioners, fabric softener or dryer softener sheets, as it would clog the fibers and reduce the cloth’s static electricity and make them less effective until the oils are washed out.

Avoid washing with cotton or terry cloth towels to prevent lint build up. Microfiber tends to grab and hold lint in the washer and dryer, (just like it grabs dirt and dust when you’re using it to clean). Ideally you should wash microfiber only with other polyester or nylon materials. We recommend that you wash all of our microfiber products in a washing net or bag for delicates to ensure continued cleaning performance and durability. Air drying microfiber will make it last the longest. Microfiber dries relatively quickly. The microfiber cloths should not be ironed.

The cloth should not be used with stainable materials such as paints and inks. DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH or abrasive solutions for cleaning or washing. This will shorten the life of the cloth.
