According to Lisa, microfiber is “a synthetic fiber that consists of polyester (plastic) and polyamide (nylon).”
The rag material is soft and absorbent, which makes it super useful when cleaning, especially to gather dust off surfaces and not leave any streaks on glass surfaces.
WHY THEY ARE SUPERIOR
Lisa claimed that many homeowners don’t use microfiber rags because they think they’re unsanitary, don’t like the feeling of them on their hands, or don’t use enough of them to justify reusing them constantly.
“When I clean my house or a client’s house, I go through almost 100 of them,” Lisa claimed.
HOW TO USE
Her hack? She uses microfiber rags as if they were paper towels in order to avoid cross-contamination.
“I use them dry 90 percent of the time,” she said.
“I spray down my surface and if it needs to be scrubbed, I use a sponge and I scrub it. Then I use my dry microfiber rag to wipe off the surface.”
After wiping down an area, Lisa said you should toss that rag in the hamper and use a new one for the next surface to avoid cross-contamination.
By the end of her house cleaning, she claimed she uses enough rags to be able to wash a load immediately.
Cleaning hacks and tips
Here are some tips to help you when you clean your home next:
“There’s no sitting around, no getting moldy, no getting stinky,” she said.
When she first started cleaning, Lisa admitted hating the feeling of microfiber on her hands, especially if her hands were dry.
“Use gloves,” she advised if you’re one of those people.
Lisa also said that wetting the rags before using them can help with the uncomfortable, sticky texture as well.
Another cleaning expert revealed you are probably keeping your dishwashing sponge too long, you should replace it every week to ensure it’s clean.
