The only detergent properly formulated for maintaining and restoring microfibers.
Yes, microfibers are machine washable. Completely. But the truth of the matter, is that with all of the polishes, waxes, oils and chemicals that we apply and remove with our microfiber towels, a regular old household detergent doesn’t cut it when it comes to cleaning or restoring them! Microfibers (when new) work so efficiently because each of the millions of individual fibers are microscopically split to allow for superior absorption. The downside to the design is that extracting all of the product that they have absorbed is nearly impossible with a regular detergent. Eventually, the build-up will compromise the cleaning, buffing or polishing efficiency of the microfibers, or worse, cause deterioration or stiffness to set in, thus, reducing the longevity of the microfiber.
I have an ever-growing collection of microfibers--from around the world, different weaves, varying plush-nesses, colors, thread counts (OK, I’m on the verge of obsession). I guess it makes me somewhat of a microfiber junkie—and, believe me, with all my experimentation, the difference that Micro-Restore makes, in comparison to your average laundry detergent, is phenomenal. All the oil, wax and gunk that they soak up—Micro-Restore eradicates, leaving the microfibers in a like-new state--supple and velvety soft. After all, if they’re going to touch the surface of my car, anything less would be a sin!
Micro-Restore is superior for treating, cleaning and preparing microfibers because it is a powerful degreaser—a strong detergent—with the absence of bleach or fabric softeners, both of which mean a certain slow death to microfibers. Micro-Restore works to remove every last bit of product that is naturally absorbed by microfibers—cleaning them thoroughly, opening their “pores” which allows them to do their job to the best of their capabilities—and extending their life.
Micro-Restore’s concentrated aqueous formula is a special blend of surfactants, emulsifiers, chelating agents and water softeners. The combination of ingredients in Micro-Restore has the power to break down all chemicals and heavy residues and remove them. The water softeners in the formula nuetralizes calcium and magnesium in hard water that cause towels to stiffen over time. Micro-Restore is the ultimate cleaner for microfibers because it rids them of all product without ruining their structure. Oh, and did I mention that it is biodegradable?
A variety of uses: Micro-Restore effectively cleans car care products (and other chemicals) safely out of cotton, chamois, even the buffing pads for your orbital or dual action buffer. It emulsifies dirty motor oil, greasy soils, car wax, and protein stains and suspends them for complete removal in the rinse cycle. Restores like new performance through several hundreds of cleanings.
The bottle that Micro-Restore comes in has a handy measuring cup built right in. Two ounces for a full load, one ounce for a small load—Micro-Restore revitalizes any type of cloth, towel or applicator that is loaded with heavy residues and chemicals. Be warned--because it is so strong, if you submerge your hands in the detergent—even when diluted with water—your hands will come out unbelievably dry. Don’t worry, it isn’t toxic, but this characteristic is why it outperforms any detergent and why it works so well! Micro-Restore is safe to use in high efficiency washers.
