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.

The Facts

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).

Microfiber Today

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!
