This post was contributed by Clean Mama, a blog that shares simple cleaning techniques and where everyday life is simplified. 

Imagine this: A magical, all-purpose cleaning tool that costs less than a cocktail.

This cleaner isn’t a myth – it can live in your home, too! While not exactly magic, microfiber does have some seemingly supernatural cleaning powers.

Interested in giving it a try? Consider Becky from Clean Mama your personal microfiber guru. Here’s the run-down on microfiber:

What is Microfiber?

Microfiber is usually a blend of 80 percent polyester and 20 percent nylon. This material can come in various textures and weaves and is used to clean many different things.

Why Use Microfiber?

  • There’s no streaking or lint left behind.
  • Microfiber washes easily and dries quickly.
  • It’s a cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative to paper towels.
  • Each microfiber cloth can be used 300+ uses. So if you clean once a week, you’ve got at least six years of use from any given cloth!

What’s the Best Way to Clean Microfiber?

Microfiber can be rinsed and wrung out as you’re using it. To clean, toss in the washing machine and launder with detergent – never use fabric softener. To dry, place in the dryer on a normal setting.

Where Can You Use Microfiber? 

Everywhere!  Microfiber is my floor-to-ceiling cleaning tool.  I definitely take advantage of certain microfiber cloths that are designated for cleaning specific things.

To see Clean Mama’s top picks for microfiber tools, read: How To Use Microfiber. It’s worth noting that these “winners” were all put to the test, so these tools really work. They’re worth the small investment!
