Raging Against the Status Quo

Published in the October 2018 issue of American Cleaning and Hygiene Magazine

Recently an article was published that stated, “Green Cleaning is Mainstream.” This might be true if you are only talking with a select group of followers who have changed their mindset, however, in the real world of cleaning, Green Cleaning is anything but mainstream.

If Green Cleaning was mainstream, then why does customer after customer still purchase single hole mop buckets and vacuums with no filters? Chemicals which have high pH factors, fragrances and color fly off the shelves daily of JanSan distributors. Look at any online catalog and try and find Green or Healthy products for the consumer to purchase.

Daily, customers purchase mop handles that are non-adjustable and use cotton mops by the case. If Green Cleaning were really mainstream, then these items would not be even manufactured as there would be no call for them.

There needs to be a reality check here about what Green Cleaning really is and what it is not. Green Cleaning is not about purchasing these items, but it is the mentality of those still mandating their use.

Microfibers are Measured in Deniers

Denier is the unit used for measuring the fineness of fabric. Microfiber is incredibly fine with a denier of approximately 0.01 to 0.02.

 

Compare this against the denier of a single strand of silk at 8, or a human hair at 20!

We would also caution you to

 

examine the denier of the microfiber your are using, as the market is flooded with product claiming to be microfiber and the denier is OVER 1.

  • <1 denier = microfiber
  • ( 1mt/gram = 9000yards )
  • Finer than 1/100 of human hair
  • Triangular section filaments
