When and How To Use A Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

Posted by James Oakley on

Ever wondered what the difference between a standard cleaning cloth and a microfiber one is?  Well, never fear, Ecomoist® is here! In this article, we will be looking at what a microfiber cleaning cloth is, when you should consider using one, and how purchasing one might be the best eco-friendly move to make when it comes to your regular cleaning routine


What Is A Microfiber Cleaning Cloth?

Well, as its name suggests, a microfiber cloth is essentially made up of microscopic fibers that have been split up to a consistency that is finer than silk. All of these tiny fibers are separate from each other, and each functions individually. This allows for a much more effective way to clean nearly all surfaces, and also means that it can hold a much larger amount of water or cleaning liquid.

When To Use A Microfiber Cleaning Cloth?

So, now that we’ve established exactly what a microfiber cleaning cloth is, the next step is to look at when the best time to use one. Whether you are looking for a car cleaning microfiber cloth, or one to make your windows squeaky clean, ensuring you have one present in your home is essential. 

For example, if you want to test one of our Microfiber Cloths against its standard counterpart, we highly recommend cleaning glass, or stainless steel surfaces. As our cloths hold more liquid or product than others, you can guarantee that no countertop or window will be left with streaks on it. Also, our microfiber cloths make for the perfect computer or laptop cleaner. Our screens really go through it all - particularly if you work from home or take your laptop to school with you. You can say goodbye to sticky, fingerprinted-filled screens with just a few swipes of our microfiber cloth. 

Here is our list of other recommended places to use your microfiber cloth:

  • Cleaning your bathroom
  • Disinfecting your kitchen counters
  • Using a microfiber cloth for your glasses or glassware
  • Car interiors or exteriors 
  • Dusting your living room, home office, or bedroom
  • Cleaning your phone or laptop screens

Is A Microfiber Cleaning Cloth More Eco-Friendly? 

Yes - purchasing a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth is much more eco-friendly than using your averaging cleaning products. 

Firstly, we recommend replacing all of your paper towels with Microfiber Cleaning Cloths. While it’s true that paper towels can break down, particularly if they are made from natural wood pulp, not many of them get recycled and for the most part, a large number of them end up in our rubbish bins. When throwing them away in our general kitchen waste, they go into rubbish bags, which of course, aren’t biodegradable. This means that many paper towels end up wrapped in plastic and in our local landfills. Not to mention, they are also extremely wasteful. Why not get a product that can not only do it all but also save the planet in the process?

Secondly, a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth is also more economical. It holds more product than your standard cloth or paper towel, meaning that you get more bang for your buck when it comes to using your everyday cleaning products. Also, you don’t have to throw them out as often. Here at Ecomoist®, we make cleaning products last. You won’t have to worry about replacing them anytime soon!
