microfiber cloth - kitchen cleaning

The first product on our top kitchen cleaning products list is to invest in microfiber cloth instead of your standard cloth. Why? You may ask. It is because microfiber is a synthetic material that is 200 times thinner than a human hair which makes them very absorbent. Microfiber is also positively charged which makes them attract negatively charged dirt and grease with more ease. Even without chemicals, microfiber cloths are able to clean dirt and grease with relative ease. And top of that microfiber cloth dries faster and hampers for bacteria to grow. Due to the micro and high absorber properties, the microfiber cloth can absorb emissions coming out from the cleaning chemical from going into the air hence it is more environmentally friendly.
