Microfiber is created by combining polyester and polyamide fibres. The polyester provides the fabric strength and durability, while the polyamide gives it a softer, silkier feel and makes it extremely absorbent and rapid drying.
Microfiber, sometimes known as microfiber, is a synthetic fibre with a diameter of 1/100th that of a human hair and 1/20th that of a strand of silk. The polyester and polyamide mix ratio determines the microfiber’s quality.
A decent microfiber towel is required for both DIY and professional automobile refurbs like Smart Refurbs , such as car detailing and water-less cleaning. Quick detailing (QD) also requires a nice microfiber towel.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
Using microfiber towels for cleaning can make cleaning your automobile easier and more effective due to the microfibers’ composition.
Cleaning may be a big pain using cloths that aren’t made of microfibre because they tend to drag dirt and muck about on surfaces.The beauty of microfiber towels is that their split strands offer additional surfaces for dirt, dust, and even germs to adhere to. Although many viruses are too tiny to be picked up by microfibers, a fabric with fibres so fine that they can grab germs is amazing, right? As a result, microfibre cloths may be used to clean a variety of surfaces with nothing more than water.
TOWELS MADE OF MICROFIBER
Towels are classified according to their intended use.
- TOWELS FOR CLEANING (ALL PURPOSE)
Microfiber towels with a weight of 200-300 gsm and an 80-20 combination of polyester and polyamide come into this category. Cleaning towels are used to clean the outside or inside of a building, and we have a large selection.
- TOWELS FOR BUFFING
These are fluffy towels with a weight ranging from 250 to 400 gsm with a polyester and polyamide combination of 75-25 or 70-30. These towels are ideal for fast detailing, wax removal, polishing, and other similar tasks. Our buffing cloths may be found here.
- TOWEL DRYING
Because drying towels have a high water absorbency and are usually in a waffle weave pattern, they are used to dry the automobile after it has been washed. They won’t be as soft as regular microfiber towels, which are usually made of an 80-20 mix.
- GLASS TOWELS
The waffle weave pattern is also seen on glass towels, but the structure has been modified to clean rather than dry, resulting in a streak-free clean.
- SUEDE TOWELS
Suede towels are lint-free, extremely soft cloths with ultrasonic cut edges that are perfect for removing coating residue.
PROTECTING YOUR MICROFIBER TOWEL
- Before you use the towels for the first time, make sure they’re clean.
- They may be washed in the machine or by hand.
- Fabric softener will clog the micro-pours in the microfiber fabric that absorb water and dust, therefore do not wash microfiber goods with it.
- Bleach can destroy the integrity of the split microfiber strands, causing your towels to lose their absorbency and dust holding capacity, as well as becoming harsh and useless.
- Microfiber is similar to plastic, therefore don’t dry it too hot. If you heat it too much, it will melt and lose its cleaning power; a machine wash at 60 degrees is usually plenty.
