One square yard (3ftx3ft) of a microfiber cleaning towel, if torn apart and the fibers laid end-to-end, would reach from Miami, FL to Minneapolis, MN
What is a Microfiber Towel?
Microfiber is a very thin (“micro”) fiber used in many kinds of textiles, from towels to clothing. It is made of synthetic fibers 100-times finer than a human hair. These fibers are composed of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide. The polyester represents the scrubbing and cleaning fibers. The polyamide represents the absorbing and quick drying fibers. At 220,000 fibers per square inch Model’s towel contains the maximum density commercially available with today’s technology. The density translates into greater cleaning power.
Types of Microfiber
- Split Microfiber – this split microfiber is used for cleaning products. Once the microfiber is split it is woven back together creating a hooked end, absorbent cleaning fiber
- Non-Split Microfiber-this microfiber is used to make shirts and furniture upholstery. When a microfiber stays in its whole form (not split) it actually wicks away moisture therefore keeping the wearer dryer.
Why is it so Effective?
Microfibers are naturally positively charged (remember high school chemistry?), therefore they naturally attract dust, dirt and grease particles which carry a negative charge. Every microfiber has a hooked end. Containing hundreds of thousands of these tightly woven hooked-end fibers per square inch creates millions of hooked end cleaning fibers per towel, which trap dust and dirt making the microfiber towel extremely effective and the preferred choice for cleaning professionals.
- Do not dry on high heat – the plastic synthetic fibers will lose their effectiveness and begin to melt the polyester and nylon fibers.
- Microfiber is highly flammable – It melts when heated and produces toxic fumes when burning
Model color-codes our microfiber towels to promote safer cleaning and reduce cross contamination. Blue microfiber towels are for glass and mirrors, red is general cleaning, and white for kitchen/food prep.
