  Q.Why do microfiber cleaning cloths clean so well?
A : The microfiber cleaning cloths are made of a revolutionary yarn that combines wedge shaped polyester filaments and a core of nylon. The wedge shaped filaments follow the surface,trapping the particles inside the fiber and avoiding the need for cleaners and detergents. The combination of this special fiber and the splitting process enables the mass of finished fibers to produce a capillary force when the cloth is damp and, thereby, act like a magnet when cleaning.
The capillary effect between the filaments and nylon core creates a very high absorbency, which in turn enables the cloth to clean and polish at the same time.
  Q.What is the composition of DMC's microfiber cleaning cloths?
A : Made out of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide fiber of 2.08denier, which is later split into 16 different microfilaments of 0.13 denier (1g of this material equals 45,000 meters of threads).This fiber is a breakthrough in cleaning technology.
  Q.How do I clean with microfiber cleaning cloths?
A : With or without water. when cleaning items such as eyeglasses, CD's or camera lenses, water is usually not needed. Simply buff with the dry cloth. However, for general cleaning, it works great with just water. there is no need for chemicals or cleaners of any kind.
  Q.How can I wash the microfiber cleaning choths?
A : Microfiber is extensively washable. Knitted cloths may be laundered up to 500 times at temperatures of 90 C using a standard detergent without the need of a softener or rinse aid.The use of bleach is not recommended. Non-woven cloths can be washed up to 30 times. Washing the cloths with hot water is recommended, the hotter the better, hot water makes the microfibers swell to release trapped dirt.
  Q.Why are dark colors not good for microfiber?
A : The lower wet fastness of dispersed dyes on microfibers can be attributed to the greater amount of dye present within the fibers and to the greater specific surface from which dye desorption can occur. The fastness of dyes to sublimation for microfibers is lower than conventional fibers, this phenomenon being due to the greater amount of dye on the microfibers which can result in a dye sublimation fastness 1-2 points lower for microfibers than for conventional fibers.
  Q.What are the differences between DMC's microfiber cleaning cloths and others?
A : We are always using the best quality microfiber yarns to give our customers the best cleaning performance. And the best quality yarns can also make the life of the cloths longer.
In addition, we are always doing our best to develop new kinds of microfiber cleaning cloths so DMC can satisfy the needs of, and create, new markets.
  Q.Does microfiber have anti-bacterial properties?
A : The DMC Magic Cleaner itself can remove internal bacteria up to 94.3%. Even if damp, the anti-bacterial ability of micorfiber cloths is unbelievably good.(see test result.)
