Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth Review
With this cloth, it’s all about giving your windows, mirrors and other glass surfaces a streak-free shine. Its functionality is attributed to the microfibres and the material that they are made of. Microfibre is magnitudes of times thinner than human hair- for instance, at 0.12 denier, this is 100 times thinner. To give you perspective, if your laid 10km of such microfibres, they would be less than 1 gram in weight. The material itself is a blend of polyester and polyamide, and the fibres are additionally split to form an asterisk -like structure. This construction gives it a large surface area, providing lots of room for dirt and liquids to be held. When wiping the surface with the Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth, the forces of attraction that are generated literally yank up the particles that are on the windows and mirrors. What’s more, the pull is so strong that the dirt is not redistributed to the rest of the surface as you proceed with the wiping. It is firmly held until when the cloth will be laundered. Speaking of which, the cloths have a high durability, and can be taken through up to 400 machine wash cycles, with temperatures as high as 90°C. The standard detergent will suffice for laundering the cloths. However, you should note that fabric softeners and bleach should not be used to wash the Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth.
As its name depicts, the Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth comes extra-large. With a 60x80cm size, each single cloth will enable you to work on more surface area within a shorter time. This, coupled with the high absorbency that is attributed to the microfibres of the material, means that lots more dirt and grime gets to be locked within the cloth before it needs to be changed or laundered. Thus, you won’t keep dashing to and from the sink, bucket or other points where the cleaning liquid and water are being held. It speeds up your operations, without compromising on the quality of the results. When using the Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth, folding it will increase your efficiency. For instance, you can first fold it in half, then fold it in half again. This will mean that you have 8 clean sides to work with. That way, only the clean side of the cloth gets used at all time, while also ensuring that you get to maximise on the entire surface area of the cloth.
The Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloths will blend in with the colour coded scheme that you have set up for your cleaning operations. These systems use colours to identify the equipment and products that can be used to work in a particular area. They have proven to be highly effective in reducing the spread of germs, and increasing hygienic standards. Four main colours are used: red, yellow, green and blue. You are at liberty to choose your own colour coding system. The conventional approach in the cleaning industry is that red is used for high-risk areas like cleaning bathroom surfaces, blue is designated for the general low-risk areas, from offices, entertainment areas, receptions and lounges, to classrooms in educational facilities to the living rooms at home. Yellow is employed for the clinical areas, though it is also occasionally used for the bathroom surfaces where the risk is reduced- like for working on the sinks and taps. Green goes for the areas where foods and beverages are being handled. The Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloths come in the 4 hygiene colours, allowing your colour coded scheme to proceed seamlessly. That way, you won’t have cloths that are being used on washroom surfaces being the same as those that are for working on the kitchen areas. These systems are used across the board, by homeowners looking to optimise their cleaning processes, business owners keen on increasing the health standards of the premises, to cleaning contractors who need to maintain a professional image for their service delivery. With colour coded schemes, managing inventory also becomes a much easier process. You will be in a position to quickly determine what is needed, and to notice equipment that is out of its intended zone of application. Training the cleaning staff to use the program is also a breeze, given that it is a visual system and colours are easy to distinguish from each other.
