My Secret to Washing Microfiber

Updated: May 5, 2020


Did your microfiber cloth lie in a heap for too long?

Did you wipe up something extra gross?

Maybe it even smells like old cheese and you’re wondering what in the world to do with it?!

Been there. Smelt that.


So, here it is, my secret to getting your cloths back to soft and scentless!


Hm, what's that? Is that the same thing as regular white vinegar?

"Cleaning vinegar" is reduced to an acidity of 6%, whereas regular white vinegar is 5%.

That 1% makes a huge difference... 20% stronger to be exact!


Pause washer mid-cycle when the cloths are all submerged and add 1 cup cleaning vinegar. You'll want to agitate the water and let soak for at least an hour, then resume the cycle. If you have a front load washing machine you can add the cleaning vinegar where it says the fabric softener goes.

Here's my gift to you!

P.S. Wondering what microfiber to get started with or what would make a good gift? I recommend ordering the Norwex"Basic Package" which includes an Envirocloth and a Windowcloth.

These two cloths will clean 90% of your home! And you can't go wrong with adding on a pack of the Laundry Detergent (liquid or powder).
