Your first time swapping a regular rag with a microfiber cloth will be like experiencing magic for the first time. These pieces of fabric are more environmentally sustainable than paper towels. They’re washable and reusable, and can clean effectively with just water. They’re also safe for delicate surfaces like laptop screens or glasses, and versatile enough for household cleaning or polishing your car. They’re composed of tiny (micro, even) fibers that attach to dirt particles, making them ideal for dry dusting, too. The smaller the particles on the cloth, the more dirt or dust it will attract. Grab a set for your every cleaning need.
