Our comfortable Green Mitt is designed for the specific purpose of being a textile cleaning tool. It's made up of fibers that are so small they are called microfibers. These microfibers are 1/200 the diameter of a human hair!
Let's address the elephant in the room. There are other microfiber mitts on the market designed for car washing and other generic cleaning purposes. While they look similar, they would not be effective for the purpose of cleaning soft surfaces.
When manufacturing microfiber, the shape, size, and type of synthetic fibers are selected for specific characteristics. This includes softness, toughness, absorption, water repellency, electrodynamics, and filtering capabilities. Each affects the the quality of the microfiber and its ability to clean.
For a microfiber to be most effective at cleaning the soils typically found on upholstered fabrics and soft surfaces, it must be a split microfiber. The Green Mitt features a woven split microfiber which is split during the manufacturing process to produce spaces in each fiber. If you were to look at the cross section of the Green Mitt microfibers under a microscope it would resemble an asterisk.
This split microfiber has a significantly increased surface area compared to traditional fibers, allowing it to pick up more dirt, oil, grease, and even microbes, including hard-to-kill spores. Furthermore, microfiber products are positively charged, attracting negatively charged dirt and grease particles. This means they can clean surfaces more effectively without the need for much water or cleaning product.
It's the split fiber, and the size of the individual filaments working in conjunction with the spaces between them acting like hooks that does the work. They pick up and hold the dust and dirt, and absorb the liquid. For these reasons, the Green Mitt is a superior soft surface cleaning tool. Paired with Clean Safe Products Super Concentrate, you get the world's easiest soft surface cleaning solution.
