The importance of microfiber screen cleaners
Microfiber screen cleaners are safer and more effective for both you and your precious screens.
We love our gadgets. There’s no doubt about it. We spend hours on our smartphones, tablets, and laptops. These devices are expensive, though, so it would be in our best interest to take good care of them, right?
One way to keep devices in tip-top shape is to adopt a mindful cleaning method. That means no more paper towels that scratch up your expensive touch screen. Instead, keep the screens of your electronics clean with microfiber screen cleaning cloths. They wipe away dirt, oil, and bacteria without scratching the interface of sensitive electronics so that your expensive electronics last as long as possible.
To understand why microfiber material works so well at cleaning devices, we first have to understand the science of these tiny fibers. Microfiber is exactly what it sounds like: microscopic (extremely small) fibers (threads). Each fiber is about 1/100th the diameter of a human hair, so we weren’t kidding when we said these threads were tiny.
These fibers are small but mighty. Thanks to their minuscule size, they have increased precision when picking up microscopic particles. As a result, they pick up more dirt and grime than materials that have large fibers. They are far more thorough at whisking away dirt than cotton is, for example.
The small fibers of these cloths are positively charged, enabling them to physically attract dust. Microfiber technology is therefore highly effective at picking up even the tiniest particles of dirt and linen.
Furthermore, microfiber cleaners don’t need water to be effective. Even when dry, they can draw away dust and wipe up oil smudges. There’s no soap or water required to keep your screen looking pristine.
However, it’s okay to use a tiny bit of water on these clothes for extra pickup power.
Make the cloth slightly damp if you need extra help removing bacteria. However, be sure not to douse the fabric in water, and don’t use any soap, either. Microfiber technology is powerful enough that you won’t need it anyway.
We spend hours on our screens every day, so we should treat them with optimal care. Besides, electronic gadgets are expensive. We have to keep them in good condition if we want them to perform well and last as long as possible.
One way to do this is proper care. Steer clear of applying chemicals and rough fabrics to your phone, tablet, and laptop screens. These may harm the touch sensitivities of interactive devices. Instead, opt for a microfiber screen cleaning cloth as a more screen-friendly alternative. Microfiber cloths can clean dirt, oil, and fingerprint smudges without causing scratching and streaking like other materials might.
Another benefit of using microfiber cleaning cloths as opposed to other methods is that these screen cleaners are eco-friendly. The synthetic fibers that make up the fabric aren’t treated with chemicals. Plus, opting for microfiber reduces the use of cleaning chemicals that are otherwise used for cleaning surfaces. Traditional detergents are harsh on electronic surfaces and even harsher on the environment. Using microfiber cloths helps to eliminate these unnecessary toxins.
Because microfiber cloths are an all-in-one cleaning method, they are incredibly convenient. There’s no need to gather additional materials like soap and water. The cloth alone does all of the work. This means that you can take it on the go. Whether you’re at home, work, or out and about, you can easily and quickly wipe off your device.
Versatile with Different Devices
Microfiber is safe and effective to use with a variety of electronic screens. It’s compatible for nearly any type of interface, including touch screens. Since it doesn’t require any water to be effective, microfiber cloths are the safest option for your digital devices. Plus, it’s just as effective at removing dust, oil, and bacteria from a phone screen as from a laptop screen, so you can use the same cloth for all of your electronics.
Durable Microfiber Material
Microfiber cleaning cloths are also highly durable, so you can use them over and over. If they gather dirt over time, simply throw them in the washing machine with basic detergent. They should last up to 500 washes without losing their effectiveness.
Your screens deserve better than the edge of your T-shirt. Next time your phone or laptop is looking grimey, opt for a cleaning method that ensures the longevity of your device. Microfiber screen cleaners are safer and more effective for both you and your precious screens.
