How To Properly Care And Use Microfiber Cleaning Cloths

Posted by ClothyMcEcloth on 3/12/2017 to Green Cleaning
For our training, we’re going to talk specifically about E-Cloth.  Now be aware, that E-Cloth microfiber is considered a high-end microfiber cleaning product.  We’re not talking about the junkie bundle of microfiber cloths you can get at discount stores - those are fairly disposable.  We’re talking about a weave and denier that is valuable, takes skill to make, and produces a product that can last for hundreds of washes.  

The MAIN RULES For Caring For Microfiber (the BIG 4)

- Rinse thoroughly daily and between uses
- Machine wash weekly if getting heavy use.  Use normal detergent when laundering.  When in doubt, use your nose - if it smells, wash it.
- Avoid bleach and fabric softeners.
- Tumble dry or hang on the line - just make sure you do not use dryer sheets.

For Our Heavier Microfiber Cloths

These are our General Purpose Cloths, our Bath and Shower Cloths.  These get used on heavy duty jobs (dirt, grease, grime, etc)

- For heavy jobs, use the cloth fully wet, then rinse, wring out water, and wipe down again with the damp cloth.  Warm water works best for grease and dirty windows.

- Follow up with the Glass and Polishing Cloths

- Safe to use on furniture, walls, etc (will not remove paint).

For Our Lighter Cloths

This would include our polishing cloth or our electronic screen cloth.

- Wet the cloth, then use.  If dusting, can be used dry.

- No additional sprays or solutions are needed when using the cloth on electronics.  If there is gunk stuck on the surface of the device, dampen a corner of the cloth and use the damp corner on the affected area.  Then dry the device immediately using the dry portion of the cloth.

Stainless Steel Appliances and Microfiber Cleaning

For stainless steel appliances, we recommend the Stainless Pack

For polished stainless steel, spray surface with water and wipe with a dry, folded Stainless Steel Cloth. Use Glass & Polishing Cloth to dry and polish surface.

For brushed stainless steel, wet cloth thoroughly, wring out excess water, fold and clean with the toughened stripes side. Use Finishing Cloth to dry and polish surface.

In the event that streaking occurs on the surface, continue rinsing the cloth under hot water as you wipe down the surface.  Repeat until the white streaks are gone.  This streaking occurs when the stainless steel surface has been previously cleaned using a Stainless Steel Cleaner.  These cleaners contain high amounts of oil that fill the crevices of the brushed stainless steel.  The cloth quickly becomes saturated with this oil and the streaking occurs.  In extreme cases, the cloth may have to be washed in the washing machine on the Hot setting to remove the oil completely from the cloth.
