Microfiber is normally used to make upholstery, cleaning cloths, apparel, or industrial filters, as it is ideal for water repellency, and other filtering needs.
WHAT IS MICROFIBER?
The textile microfiber is made from super fine synthetic yarns, which are polyester and nylon. The fibers are so ultra thin, up to 100 times finer than a human hair! This is why it’s great at repelling water. It has a slight positive charge, which means it also traps dusty bits (they’re negatively charged) instead of spreading them.
This is why microfiber can be used to make a face mask, which you can wash and reuse. (However, frontliners are discouraged to use microfiber face masks, and must continue using the required medical-grade PPEs.
Microfiber is extremely breathable, even while repelling water. This is the reason why it’s popular for linens and sports wear. It helps regulate temperature and keep you comfortable while wearing it, or sleeping on it!
HOW TO CLEAN
To clean your microfiber textile, simply hand-wash it with water, or soak in cool or warm (not hot!) water. Rinse and air- dry.
