One advantage of microfiber mops over cotton counterparts is how easy they are to clean — they simply get thrown in the washing machine.

Wash dust and wet microfiber mop heads with a gentle detergent in hot water. They should never be washed with bleach or fabric softener. Microfiber mop heads should also be rinsed before going into the dryer.

End users should treat microfiber similar to their delicate clothes at home and dry on low heat. Temperatures above 140 degrees and dryer sheets can damage the microfibers.
