All cleaning companies have a few cleaning hacks, tricks, and nifty secrets that make your home look miraculously clean with incredible ease. This time, Maid to Shine will be sharing a few microfiber cleaning cloths to hope you make your cleaning experience easier. Microfibers are multi-purpose, and it makes it easier for one cloth to do multiple tasks. They can be used for polishing, cleaning, and dusting!
Microfiber Cloths for Dusting
Microfibers are practically designed to be natural dust catchers. They’re statically charged, which makes it easy for them to catch and hold onto dirt, pet hair, micro particles, and dust bunnies. This makes them the perfect accessory for dusting since they grab onto the errant dirt and don’t let go.
If you chose to dust with a microfiber, it’s a simple process. Fold the cloth in a neat, little square or rectangle. This insures that the cloth doesn’t fling around and toss the captured dust back onto clean items. Place your hand on top of the folded cloth and run the microfiber over the dusty surfaces. Be sure to get in the little nooks and grooves, pulling all the dust off. An extra tip is to pull the dust off onto the floor and vacuum the room after dusting. This makes for an incredibly efficient use of cleaning time.
Microfiber Cloths for Polishing
Microfibers “shine” their best when they’re used for polishing up things. Polishing up with a microfiber is a great last step. It shines up what you’ve just cleaned with a perfect brilliance. Granite counter tops, mirrors, shining surfaces, glass doors, glass walls in showers, etc. All of these items are perfect for polishing with the microfiber cloth. The soft fibers of the cloth pull out and buff any smears (or spots) that might have been accidentally left during the initial cleaning.
After taking care that you’ve cleaned the surface thoroughly and completely (so that the microfiber cloth doesn’t become grimy), take the microfiber, keeping it folded neatly, lay it flat on the surface and begin buffing and polishing the surface with firm pressure. Buffing in a circle is very helpful, and beginning from the back and working to the front (or from top to bottom) is an efficient way of cleaning too. It’s very little effort for an incredible amount of beautiful polish.
Use the microfiber to push your cleaning to its absolute best. Your home will take on a naturally and professionally clean look.
