How to pick a microfiber cloth?

The invention of microfiber cloth

Microfiber cloth was invented by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto in 1970. It is called an artificial substitute for suede.

And the fabric is multifunctional: it can be used for fashion, interior decoration, automobile and other vehicle decoration, and industrial applications, such as protective fabrics for electronic devices.

About the characteristics of super fiber

Due to the small diameter of the superfine fiber, its bending stiffness is very small, the fiber feels particularly soft, and it has a strong cleaning function and waterproof and breathable effect.

Microfibers have many fine pores between the microfibers to form a capillary structure. If processed into towel-like fabrics, they will have high water absorption.

After washing the car, a large amount of residual water can be quickly wiped dry with a microfiber towel.

Weight

The higher the weight of the fabric, the better the quality and the more expensive the price; on the contrary, the lower the weight of the fabric, the lower the price, and the lower the quality.

The unit of gram weight is “grams per square meter” (g/m2), abbreviated as FAW. The gram weight of the fabric is generally the gram of the fabric weight in square meters, and the gram weight is an important technical indicator of the super fiber fabric.

Texture type

In the automotive beauty industry, microfiber cloth is mainly divided into three types: long hair, short hair, and waffle.

Long hairs are mainly used for large-area water collection steps; short hairs are used for detailed processing and crystal plating wiping steps, and waffle is mainly used for glass cleaning and wiping.

Softness

Thanks to the microfiber fabric due to its small diameter, it is easy to get a very soft feel, but the softness of towels produced by different manufacturers is not the same, and the softer towels are less likely to leave scratches when wiping. It is recommended to use a softer towel.

Hemming process

There are satin stitching, laser seamless stitching, and other processes. Generally speaking, the stitching process that can hide the stitches can reduce the possibility of scratching the paint surface.

Durability

The better quality microfiber cloth is less likely to shed hair, and it is not easy to become stiff after several washings. This kind of microfiber cloth has longer durability.

Microfiber cloth is usually a special-shaped fiber, and the fineness of its filament is usually only one twentieth of that of ordinary polyester yarn.

In contrast, the microfiber cloth has greater contact with the surface to the area. And having a larger contact area gives the superfine fiber a better dust removal effect!

China blackouts: What will it cause to Chinese factories?

The blackouts spread in China since September 2021, and it seems will last for a longer time. The media in the world like BBC, New York Times, CNN all reported about this news. Some are telling the truth and have good analysis, some are somehow distorting the fact.

As a Chinese live in the east of China, I’d like to share my experience and also give some advice to our customers.

 

How’s China’s electricity power capacity?

It is true that China has the biggest population in the world, and that decides China needs the most electric power to ensure people’s daily life, industry function, and normal operation of the city.

When I was a child, at the age around 7, in the 1990s, it’s common that we will have several days of blackout in the summer. Usually, the electricity cuts in the daytime and opens again in the evening.

Considering the big shortage of electric power, the Chinese government put forward an idea of the “West to East” Electricity Transmission Project to solve the Energy Poverty in 1986.

It is an extremely difficult and enormous task, the project almost goes across all over the China map. It takes over 2 decades, the total investment is over 520 billion. By 2009, the project comes to end.

Actually in my memory, since 2003 we had never experienced blackouts again in life. While for factories, when in electric peak time in the summer, they will have several days blackout to ensure the life electricity needs, but this is not always seen.

 

How serious the blackout is going on now in China?

Since mid-September, more than 20 provinces in China have started orderly use of electricity, include Jiangsu, Guangdong, Yunnan, Guangxi, Zhejiang, Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang Provinces.

Industrial enterprises in many places have been asked to switch peak power consumption. In northeast China, the restricted power supply has affected the normal operation of cities and residents’ daily power consumption, even beyond industrial and commercial power consumption.

Some factories are asked to open 5 days, rest 2 days, some open 4 days, rest 3 days, some may be more serious.

But the daily life and city operation is basically normal going, except some places in the northeast.

 

What caused China’s widespread blackouts?

Firstly, as the world is affected by the Corona Virus, the manufacturing distribution changes. Factories in some countries in Asia like India, Vietnam, Thailand were closed, the production get influenced. To ensure the global supplies, importers and distributors change their supply chain and choose to place orders in Chinese factories. The surging orders directly lead to more power demand.

Secondly, influenced by several factors, the price of coal has been pushed up more than 2 times. While more than half of Chinese power plants still rely on coal-fired. Under the strict electricity price controlling from the government, the power plants can not increase the price but are also unwilling to operate at a loss. So they choose to reduce the output instead.

Also, the rules imposed by the Chinese government that attempt to make the carbon neutral by 2060, could be one of the reasons too. And China is devoting to the industrial structure adjustment all these years, reduce pollutions, have a healthier and cleaner industry structure.

 

What is China doing to resolve the problem?

First, strengthen the unified dispatching of the whole network, arrange the operation mode reasonably, serve the power generation enterprises well, and do both should and do;

Second, coordinate and allocate resources, give full play to the advantages of large power grid platform, and tap the power transmission potential of trans-regional and trans-provincial channels;

Third, we will strengthen monitoring of electricity consumption, do the best to ensure electricity consumption for residents, provide good services to users and respond to their concerns.

Fourth, strictly implement the government’s demand response and orderly power consumption plan, timely do a good job in communication and coordination, and spare no effort to maintain the order and stability of power supply and consumption;

Fifth, strictly implement the responsibility of power supply guarantee, improve various emergency plans, strengthen the emergency duty of power grid operation, and ensure safe and reliable power consumption.

 

What advice do you have for importers?

It is a hard time both for our customers and our factory. The blackouts directly lead to delivery time delays. Because the factory can not open every day, the production capacity is dramatically shrunk.

So if you have seasonal orders that must be shipped at a special time, or hot selling items always need to be fulfilled in stock, please place the orders earlier to guarantee the shipment time.

What can pressure washers be used for?

The Different Pressure Washer Applications

Having a nice big backyard is great. You can wash or work on your car any time you choose, fire up the barbeque and gather some friends to have a good time. You can improve it by building a deck, a gazebo, you name it. 

The only downside is cleaning up after those activities, it takes a long time and some of those stains are just too tough to remove, no matter how hard your scrub and how much detergent you use. That’s why you should seriously consider buying a pressure washer.

It will not only provide you with enough power to get rid of all those stubborn stains, but it will do that job in only a fraction of the time it would take you to do it manually. 

Pressure washer applications are so numerous it would probably require a small book just to write them all down. Let’s go through some of them.

Pressure Washing Your Grill

I love to use my grill, but I despise cleaning it afterwards just as much. Getting rid of all that grease and fat that is burned deep into the metal is an absolute nightmare. Once I bought a pressure washer, all of that changed. 

Cleaning my grill has never been easier. However, there are some things you need to do first before blasting it with a water jet from a pressure washer. Depending on the type of grill you have, disconnect it from either electricity, propane tank, or a natural gas line.

Start with a 45-degree nozzle tip to get rid of any loose grease, grime and fat. I also recommend that you use a strong degreaser. Let the degreaser do its thing for about five minutes, before blasting the grill with a 15-degree spray tip to remove the most difficult stains. Once you have gotten rid of all that grime, rinse down the grill using a 45-degree nozzle tip.


 

Pressure Washing Your Car

I’ve already written a separate article on how you should wash your car using a pressure washer, so I’ll just do a quick rundown here.

When washing your car with a pressure washer, make sure to wash it down with water only first, so that you get rid of loose dirt, salt, ormud. 

After that you can apply detergent either manually, or using the soap tip. After that, use a low-pressure tip to wash down the detergent. Also, always remember to wash the underside of your car, too.

 

Pressure Washing Wooden Surfaces

You can also use a pressure washer to wash wooden surfaces, such as decks, house siding, gazebos, stairs, wooden fences, and even wooden outdoor furniture. 

Just keep in mind to use low-pressure nozzle tips, because a high-pressure water jet is powerful enough to strip finish from wood. Also, water particles can embed themselves deep inside the wood, causing it to bend and rot. 

This is also the reason why you should never use a high-pressure jet in combination with detergent when washing wooden surfaces.

 

Pressure Washing Metal

You can take full advantage of your pressure washer when washing metallic surfaces. I’ve already mentioned using a pressure washer to clean your grill, but you can also use it to clean metal fencing, gutters, drains, alloy wheels, metal roofs… 

Well, pretty much anything metallic, using a high-pressure nozzle tip. Just remember not to get too close to the surface, as the water jet can scratch it.

 

Pressure Washing Concrete and Brick

Your garage floor, brick walkways and concrete driveways are usually the most difficult to clean. Getting those oil and grease stains out of these surfaces using a high-pressure nozzle, with the help of a detergent, is now finally possible. 

I always get annoyed when I spot weed growing between bricks in my yards. Needless, weeds are no match for my pressure washer.
