What is a Microfiber?

Microfiber is a polyester and nylon (polyamide) fiber that is used to make fabric. The fiber is split many times smaller than a human hair. Its diamater is 0.4um only,about one tenth that of silk fiber.This makes it a superior material for cleaning and germ removal because it is able to penetrate cracks and crevasses that cotton cloths or paper towels could not reach. 

The increased surface area of the fibers and their star shape also allow them to absorb up to 7 to 8 times their weight in liquid. The fibers generate a static electric charge when moved across a surface that attracts dust and contains it, rather than spreading it around or releasing it into the air when dry dusting.
