While several studies have shown the adoption of microfiber textiles has improved cleaning and disinfection outcomes, questions remain regarding the quality and durability of different microfiber products, particularly after laundering. In this session, attendees will learn about a study conducted among different microfiber mops and wipes that indicates typical commercial laundry processes can cause irreversible damage to polyester microfibers and inadequate removal of viable microbes and other debris. The report will address microscopic structure before and after laundering, quantify the bioburden recovered from disposable versus laundered mops, and evaluate a microfiber textile’s ability to clean and disinfect surfaces.
1. Describe impact of repeated laundering on the structure and performance of microfiber-based cleaning textiles.
2. Evaluate cleaning efficacy and disinfectant compatibility of re-laundered versus disposable microfiber cleaning textiles.
3. Reduce the risk of cross-contamination resulting from inadequate cleaning and disinfection of high-touch environmental surfaces.
4. Understand the role of disinfectants in microfiber textile use.
