Why Microfiber Cloths are Better
What makes microfiber so unique? Strands of this material are split or “cracked” 10 times which creates a positive electric charge. The dirt and dust particles have a negative charge which makes them a perfect match. The result is a super strong bond and faster, easier cleanup. Red Star Rags sells microfiber cloths that are washable up to 300 times, making it a great eco-friendly alternative to cotton.
Good for Environment: Using microfiber is a responsible move and good for your business, employees, and the Earth. Because fewer chemicals need to be used when cleaning, less contaminated water ends up down the drain where it can contribute to health risks. According to the EPA, this can result in up to a 95% reduction in cleaning chemicals in our water supply.
Healthier Cleaning Method: Also, according to the EPA, microfiber towels leave traditional rags in the dust when it comes to eradicating harmful bacteria. In studies where a bacteria culture is taken after cleaning with microfiber, there can be up to a 99% reduction from pre-cleaning versus just 33% when using standard cotton.
Fewer Chemicals Used: Microfiber solutions can greatly reduce the inhalation and/or absorption of toxic chemicals. Did you know that each year in the United States, commercial structure managers spend as much on hazardous cleaning chemicals as people spend on 1 million cars or 100,000 homes?* That’s a lot of chemicals. Microfiber allows the use of fewer harmful cleaning solutions.
Cost-Effective Solution: Microfiber can be laundered up to 300 times. Compare that to the 55-100 times of regular cotton. This cycle of reuse makes it easy to save money on your operating expenses.

Caring for Microfiber Towels
Caring for microfiber towels is very simple and will be key to a longer lasting towel. Wash with warm 100° F water and a mild detergent using a liquid detergent, not a powder. Do not use bleach, or use any fabric softeners and dryer sheets. Do not wash with other cottons. Separate colors and do not wash dark and light color together. Do not dry with high heat.
