Microfiber's strength, compactness, and rapid drying capabilities set it apart from traditional fabrics. Composed of micro-thin threads, each measuring a mere 1/100th the diameter of a human hair, microfiber boasts exceptional durability due to its tightly woven structure. This high thread count not only enhances its longevity but also renders it exceptionally absorbent, making it an ideal material for upholstery, towels, sheets, and more. 

How to care for microfiber

Properly caring for microfiber is essential to maintain its quality and prolong its lifespan. Treating it like any other synthetic garment is key. Keep in mind that microfiber does not become softer with time and is sensitive to excessive heat. To ensure its longevity and performance, follow these steps when washing microfiber items:

  1. Water Temperature: Use cold or warm water for washing microfiber. Avoid using hot water, as it may damage the fabric.

  2. Detergent Selection: Opt for a detergent that does not contain fabric softeners. Products like Revivex Pro Cleaner are ideal choices for maintaining microfiber's integrity.

  3. Load Configuration: Wash microfiber items with other clothing, towels, or sheets. This ensures that they receive proper agitation during the washing process.

  4. Drying: After washing, either hang the microfiber items to air dry or tumble dry them on a low heat setting. Avoid using high heat, as it can harm the fabric's texture.
