How It Works & How To Wash Your Jude's
Jude’s Miracle Cloth
Wet it, wring it, wipe it, and walk away!
High-quality microfiber combined with the right manufacturing process creates an extremely effective, durable, and high performing cleaning material. Designed in this same way, the premium microfibre of Jude’s Miracle Cloth strategically lifts and traps dirt and moisture like no other.
Unlike a cotton fiber cloth that simply pushes dirt and moisture around, Jude’s Miracle Cloth leaves surfaces clean, dry, and polished – every time. Simply wet it, wring it, wipe it, and walk away!
But How Does It Work?
Microfiber is a thread with less than one denier, which is the measurement used to describe the size of a fiber. In fact, microfiber is so fine that 9,000 meters of microfiber weighs only 1 gram!
Jude’s Miracle Cloth works because the patented manufacturing method creates rugged pie-wedged cross sections of fiber, built for lifting dirt and oil. Splitting each fiber into multiple separate strands, Jude’s increases surface mass for efficient and chemical-free moisture and dirt retrieval. No chemicals or solvents are used to manufacture the cloth – just water.
Did you know that microfiber materials can absorb up to 400% of their own weight in water?
The molecular composition of polyester and nylon make microfiber highly lipophilic, which means that lipids or fats stick extremely well to them. For this same reason, microfiber products also have the exceptional ability to absorb oils. Microfiber textiles designed for cleaning are not just cloths, but are a scientifically engineered precision tool that allows for cleaning on a microscopic scale!
Field tests conducted by the University of California-Davis Hospital determined that using microfiber materials to clean a surface could reduce the number of bacteria by 99%, whereas conventional cleaning materials typically reduce bacteria by only 33%.
Microfiber: A Brief History
- Dating back to the late 1950’s, curious minds began experimenting with splitting fibers.
- Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto of Japan is credited with conducting one of the most promising microfiber experiments in the 1960’s.
- Dr. Toyohiko Hikota, in collaboration with Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto, went on to design various successful industrial applications of the fiber (first in Europe, and then all over the world).
Today, microfiber fabrics are most commonly used in athletic wear, as the material wicks moisture away from the body, keeping its wearers dry and comfortable. Microfiber is also commonly used in bathrobes, swimwear, and of course, Jude’s Miracle Cloth!
How To Wash and Care for Your Jude's
If your Jude’s is really dirty or has picked up oils or grease, it’s best to wash it before your next cleaning. Otherwise, a thorough rinse in water and hang to dry is sufficient for the next use.
You can hand wash your Jude’s in the sink with any dish soap or detergent, or you can throw it in the washing machine in up to 200*F / 95* C hot water. Please note that we recommended washing your Jude’s with lint-free items, as lint and fluff can transfer onto the cloth from towels etc. and may cause streaking and pilling.
Soaking in or adding an oxy-type whitener to your wash is recommended to remove stains. We do not recommend using bleach, as bleach will deteriorate and shorten the life of your cloth.
DO NOT use fabric softeners!
Fabric softeners coat the fibres and may cause streaking and limit the absorbency. If this happens, wash your Jude’s again to remove the fabric softener.
HANG TO AIR DRY!
Don’t worry! Jude’s Miracle Cloths dry very quickly. Putting them in the dryer shortens the life of the cloth, may cause pilling, and will attract lint or fluff, which may cause streaking.
