Cleaning with Microfiber

Cleaning with Microfiber

Microfiber is a very fine synthetic fiber made from a blend of polyester and polyamide. When this high-quality microfiber is combined with the right knitting process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material that actually removes dirt and bacteria from surfaces rather than simply pushing it around like traditional cotton cloths. It is also extremely absorbent, holding up to seven times its weight in water, so surfaces dry much quicker. And because the microfibers can be used with water alone, they reduce the need for chemical cleaners by up to 90%!

Microfibers are available most everywhere. So why choose Norwex? The answer in is the cloth. Our microfiber is 1/100th the size of a human hair, much finer than the average microfiber available on the market today. A smaller fiber means a tighter weave, and a tighter weave will lock the dirt and bacteria in much more effectively. What’s more, Norwex microfibers are antibacterial. They contain a silver-based agent that actually removes 99.9% of bacteria and destroys it right in the cloth. This antibacterial agent demonstrates its effectiveness against strains of pathogenic bacteria, yeast and viruses, for example:

Microfibers may used wet to remove dirt and debris from all washable surfaces, or dry to remove dirt and dust particles. Even the smallest of particles will be drawn into the cloth and locked in to the fibers until the cloth is laundered.

2. Fold it again. You now have a total of 8 clean sides to work with. For the Window and Car Cloth, fold it again and you have 16 clean sides to work with.

3. Place your whole hand on the cloth and wipe with even strokes. The cloth should be flat against the cleaning surface. The Enviro Cloth is used dry for dusting.

On less dirty surfaces, spray water on the surface and polish with the dry window cloth. For extra dirty surfaces, clean the surface with a wet Enviro Cloth first, then use the Window Cloth to dry and polish. This last step is recommended the first time you clean your windows in order to remove any residue that may have been left behind by other cleaners.

Be sure to move the mop in a good-size figure-8 pattern from left to right in front of you, bringing the mop towards you as you back up so that you will be moving the dirt or debris in one direction.

4. Proceed to mop and clean your entire floor in a figure-8 pattern, rinsing when the front edge becomes dirty.

For spot cleaning – you can also use the spray bottle to dampen the floor, and then wipe with the mop.

Note: Always use the dry mop prior to using the wet mop. Yellow mops are “Dry” for cleaning. Blue mops are “Wet” for washing.

To save the environment and reduce the use of detergents, we suggest that slightly dirty cloths and mops be washed with a little dish detergent under warm running water and used again before laundering.
