What to know about cleaning ‪#‎microfiber‬ at #aeastern.com How to clean microfiber
Microfiber mops and cloths are designed for repeated use and most brands should withstand anywhere from 300 to 500 laundry cycles. According to industry manufacturers, if the product is properly used and cared for, the product itself often will fall apart long before the microfiber becomes ineffective.

The first step in ensuring microfiber is being laundered properly is to make certain the machines used for washing soiled product meets manufacturer’s recommendations. The type of washing machine used to launder microfiber products should be highly considered, since some standard residential or commercial machines will not provide the desired result.

Manufacturers say it is important to remember that microfiber should be washed in temperatures that do not exceed 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Often, commercial cleaners and even hospital-based laundering facilities clean at temperatures around 140 degrees Fahrenheit, and don’t wash long enough to kill microorganisms that are being picked up with microfiber products.

Recognizing the need for machines that thwart microbial contamination, some newer commercial washing machines have built-in settings for washing microfiber. But washing machine manufacturers have taken it even further by engineering machines that specifically meet washing requirements for reusable microfiber cloths and mops.

In these machines, the cleaning process starts with a special spin cycle, which dewaters mops and rids them of 50 percent of dirt and soil before it even begins the main cleaning cycle. The machines use water temperatures ranging from 140 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. They can even disinfect through a 180-degree cleaning cycle with a hold time of 15 minutes — a feature that residential or commercial washers can’t achieve.
