Do you remember those days when you were a young boy/girl, helping out your dad clean your car on a crisp Sunday morning? Remember how you would hose down the car, lather it up with some old piece of sponge, and wash it while spraying water all over the house (and your dad)?
Unfortunately, your kids (and their kids) might never experience Sunday mornings like that again. Well, because now instead of wasting water and time with a hose and a sponge, you have much better cleaning products.
Such as a microfiber cleaning cloth.
When it comes to cleaning surfaces like cars and boats, or even regular surfaces in the house such as your kitchen counter-top, the coffee table, etc., nothing can beat the efficiency of a microfiber cleaning cloth.
As the name suggests, microfiber cleaning cloths are made up of extremely fine fibers, usually of synthetic fibers like nylon or polyester. Despite weighing as light as feathers, they are very durable and strong and have a tremendous water holding capacity. Not only can they absorb water, they can also hold a lot of oil, which makes them ideal for cleaning around the house.
One of my pet peeves is the lint or dust that conventional cleaning cloths leave behind. Imagine spending hours to clean your car before an evening out, only to find a fine trail of lint on the windshield after you’ve dressed up and are getting ready to go out. This is the reason why back in my childhood, my father used to make me clean the car windows with a newspaper as it didn’t leave any lint behind.
Microfiber cleaning cloth, however, functions the same way: it leaves behind no lint, no dust, or no broken fibers. Once you clean a surface with it, it remains clean.
Of course, not every microfiber cleaning cloth that you see on the market is built the same. The quality and fineness of the fibers that make up the cloth vary a lot. Typically, the finer the fibers, the better the cloth will be at cleaning, and will have a much higher water/oil holding capacity.
Microfiber cleaning cloths can be washed like any other cloth and can last for years. Sure, they might cost a bit more than your regular cleaning cloth, but once you start using one, you’ll never touch any other cleaning cloth ever again!
