8" x 8" soft microfiber cloth, perfect for cleaning guitars, effects, glasses, etc.
Microfiber products used for consumer cleaning are generally constructed from split conjugated fibers of polyester and polyamide. Fabrics
made with microfibers are exceptionally soft and hold their shape well.
When high-quality microfiber is combined with the right knitting
process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material. This
material can hold up to eight times its weight in water. Microfiber
products have exceptional ability to absorb oils, and are not hard enough to scratch even paintwork unless they have retained grit or hard particles from previous use.
Microfiber is widely used by car detailers
to handle tasks such as removing wax from paintwork, quick detailing,
cleaning interior, cleaning glass, and drying. Due to their fine fibers
which leave no lint or dust, microfiber towels are used by car detailers and enthusiasts in a similar manner to a chamois leather.Microfiber is used in many professional cleaning applications, for example in mops
and cleaning cloths. Although microfiber mops cost more than
non-microfiber mops, they may be more economical because they last
longer and require less effort to use.
Microfiber textiles designed for cleaning clean on a microscopic
scale. According to tests using microfiber materials to clean a surface
leads to reducing the number of bacteria by 99%, whereas a conventional
cleaning material reduces this number only by 33%. Microfiber cleaning tools also absorb fat and grease and their electrostatic properties give them a high dust-attracting power.
Microfiber cloths are used to clean photographic lenses as they
absorb oily matter without being abrasive or leaving a residue, and are
sold by major manufacturers such as Sinar, Nikon and Canon. Small microfiber cleaning cloths are commonly sold for cleaning computer screens and eyeglasses.
Microfiber is unsuitable for some cleaning applications as it
accumulates dust, debris, and particles. Sensitive surfaces (such as all
high-tech coated surfaces e.g. CRT, LCD and plasma
screens) can easily be damaged by a microfiber cloth if it has picked
up grit or other abrasive particles during use. The cloth itself is
generally safer to use on these surfaces than other cloths, particularly
as it requires no cleaning fluid. One way to minimize the risk of
damage to flat surfaces is to use a flat, non-rugged microfiber cloth,
as these tend to be less prone to retaining grit.
Cleaning textiles made of microfiber must only be washed in regular
washing detergent, not oily, self-softening, soap-based detergents. Fabric softener
must not be used. The oils in the softener and self-softening
detergents will clog up the fibers and make them less effective until
the oils are washed out.
