Microfiber: What It Is and How to Wash It

There is a lot to love about microfiber; for starters, it’s strong, compact and dries incredibly fast. Microfiber is made of micro-thin threads (1/100th the diameter of a human hair) of fabric woven tightly together, making it more durable than most fabrics. The tight weave requires a high number of threads, making it super absorbent and excellent for active people. These properties make microfiber an excellent fabric for upholstery, towels, sheets and more.

How to wash microfiber

Think of it as any other synthetic garment: it won’t get softer, and it’s sensitive to extreme heat. Wash microfiber in cold or warm water with a detergent free of fabric softeners, like Revivex Pro Cleaner. Wash it with any other clothing, towels or sheets then hang or tumble dry on low heat.

Our microfiber is a polyester material that’s soft like suede. We also carry a micro-terry towel that is more abrasive and has the traditional towel feel. Whatever it is that you’ve got planned, chances are we’ve got a microfiber towel for you:
