In this article, we will talk about the difference between traditional Microfiber and Bamboo microfiber cloths and the effects they have on our environment.
Let’s talk about each one of them.
Bamboo Microfiber Cloth
The most common type of Microfiber used in cleaning cloths is made from a polyester and polyamide (nylon). In simple terms, the Microfiber is essentially made of plastic.
You may already be aware that plastics are not great for the environment. They create air pollution, land pollution, and can badly affect marine life.
The materials used in microfiber cloths are not biodegradable. Evidence shows that materials released from the microfiber cloths are damaging our water supply and end up in our oceans and lakes. With the right care, a polyester microfiber cloth can be used many times and cleans very well but it is not the only option available.
We must factor in the health of our environment, as our personal health and wellbeing is also directly affected by it. If the environment is free from pollution, there will be fewer breathing problems such as Asthma.
Bamboo Cleaning Cloths
Bamboo microfiber cloths are made purely from bamboo fibres and 100% biodegradable. They do not shed any micro-plastics during washing or cleaning. The bamboo cleaning cloth is an eco-friendly sustainable option for everyday cleaning. It easily wipes away dirt, stains and grease.
Microfiber Bamboo cloth has all 3 important characteristics. They are biodegradable, renewable, and reusable.
We created a video doing one of our cleaning jobs where we used both plastic Microfiber and Bamboo microfiber cleaning cloths to show you that Bamboo cloths are also very effective in our day to day cleaning. They are our pick for the future of sustainable cleaning.
