Microfiber Cloths: Modern Betty's New Best Friend!

Microfiber cloths are make cleaning less toxic because they have the ability to clean, dust and polish without the use of any cleaning chemicals.

The cloths are made of tiny wedge shaped fibers, up to 100 times finer than a human hair. The tiny fibers grab and hold dirt.

They are long lasting and re-usable.

In the Kitchen:

Microfiber for cleaning counters and stovetops. The tiny fibers pick up more dirt and food residue than most cloths.

Is easy with microfiber. The little fibers trap dust so that it stays in one place instead of flying around. When the job is finished, shake the cloth outside, or rinse in lukewarm water and hang to dry.

Blinds are super simple to clean with microfiber, no more left over dust at the end of the blinds!


Wash any floor with a microfiber mop. The most common have flat-surfaced, easy to remove microfiber heads. Because it’s so easy, mop heads can be rinsed more frequently using very little water. Microfiber makes for a revolution in mop technology.

Microfiber is superb for cleaning eyeglasses or other lenses.

A microfiber cloth in the car is perfect for cleaning the windshield. It will remove condensation, kids’ hand prints, dog nose prints, ice cream smears and other dirt. Make sure it’s dry before storing in the glove compartment to avoid mould.

Microfiber cloths should be damp for cleaning, dry for dusting. They work best for cleaning if soaked for a few minutes in warm water, but they work even if that step is omitted.

Microfiber clothes should be cleaned after use by washing in warm water with a little dish detergent. They can be washed in the washing machine but MUST BE KEPT AWAY FROM FABRIC SOFTERNER. Fabric softener clogs the fibers and will ruin the cloth.

For tough cleaning jobs where a little extra oomph is needed, use microfiber cloths with a small amount of less toxic cleaner, I recommend Modern Betty’s “One & Only!”

Microfiber cloths are tolerated well by people with chemical sensitivity.

Microfiber cloths save money by reducing the need for chemical cleaners. They reduce exposure to chemicals in the home and reduce pollution from cleaning chemicals. These durable, reusable cloths are made from synthetic fibers, usually polyester and nylon, and are not treated with chemicals.

Available in grocery stores, health food stores, hardware stores, dollar shops and from a number of home sales companies, prices range from cheap ($1.00) to mid-range ($3.00- $5.00) to pricey ($20.00). There are differences in quality and durability. Higher priced cloths usually have smaller fibers and pick up more dirt and dust, but even the cheap ones get good results.
