What is a microfiber towel?
Microfiber is the name used to describe ultra-fine manufactured fibers and the name given to the technology of developing these fibers. Fibers made using microfiber technology, produce fibers which weigh less than 0.1 denier. The fabrics made from these extra-fine fibers provide a superior hand, a gentle drape and incredible softness. Microfibers are two times finer than silk, three times finer than cotton, eight times finer than wool, and one hundred times finer than a human hair. Microfiber cloths have many uses for detailing enthusiasts, they are ideal for: Removing Wax, Polishing, Cleaning Glass and removing dust from most surfaces. They do a great job without the worry of scratching your surfaces.
This is different from traditional "rags" and cloths because of the split fibers because they are able to work better on a micro level. These fibers connect better to the paint, resulting in more surface tension and a better finish.
It is important to take special care of your microfiber towels. They're a great investment, and can last years with the proper care.
NO FABRIC SOFTENER
Only wash microfibers with other microfibers.
Most of the time, hot water is enough to wash your microfiber towels. But with heavily soiled towels or you have a lot of towels to wash this may not be the best option. These are gentle cleaners, with no fabric softeners or heavy detergents.
To dry, hanging them is the preferred method, however you can also dry them in the dryer on the no heat setting.
