HOW DOES MICROFIBER WORK?
The Microfiber Difference - Cotton Vs. Microfiber
Microfiber products by Eurow are woven from conjugated fibers composed of polyester and polyamide. They are superior to single-material microfibers due to their unique split-fiber construction. During the manufacturing process, the microfiber is split, producing a multi-stranded fiber with a finer diameter than a human hair. These microfilaments effectively lift debris and trap it in the spaces between them, locking up to 99% of dirt, dust, viruses and bacteria deep within the cloth’s fibers - all with, or without, cleaning chemicals (figure 1). Microfiber is the technology of today, leaving behind a lint-free, scratch-free, and streak-free finish while reducing surface and airborne allergens.
Cotton Pushes, Microfiber Lifts
Traditional cleaning tools, usually made from cotton or nonwoven materials, do not have the cleaning capabilities of microfiber. While cotton fibers simply push around microparticles and scatter them into small piles (figure 2), microfiber effectively lifts and locks debris deep within its split fibers. Eurow microfiber’s split-fiber design provides superior absorption of liquids and oils and more resilient retention of dirt and dust.
