Never ever use normal cotton clothes to wash your car/ bike again! It pushes dirt and debris rather than picking it up, and it is made of organic materials that can harbor odor or bacteria. Also, it may create tiny scratches in your vehicle paint surface. If you’ve tried the latest microfiber cleaning cloths, you’ll know that technology really can make life easier. Not only are these clothes more hygienic, but they also avoid the need for expensive (and often harmful) detergents and they get things looking far cleaner in a lot less time. It’s not magic—it’s science. Microfiber cloths are a synthetic material made up of tiny strands. Each strand is about 1% the diameter of a human hair and can be tightly woven to create an ultra-absorbent material. The strands are made of fibers such as nylon, Kevlar, and polyester, and are extremely strong and durable, making them ideal for automotive uses. They capture and pull away dirt and dust into their fibers unlike many other natural and synthetic fabrics, which smear dust and dirt around the surface.
