Microfibre cloths may have been around for awhile now but have recently become a trending topic
Unlike other regular pieces of cloth, cleaning products made out of microfibre tend to be great for wiping surfaces because of their absorbency.
Good split microfibre cloth can help trap and absorb dirt easily without spreading the dust around or leaving scratched marks.
Generally made out of polyester and polyamide (nylon), these cloths are also a good alternative to paper towels.
Do note, though, that not all microfibre cloths are meant for cleaning. Look out for labels that mention 'split microfibre' if you want to use it to clean glass surfaces.
Non-split microfibre is usually just a very soft cloth used to make clothes and such; they do not have the same properties as split microfibre and may leave scratches.
