Are Spectacle Cloths Lint Free ?
What do you use to clean your glasses?
Hopefully you are all using a lint free microfibre cloth right?
what does this mean?
When it comes to cotton, a tighter weave means less lint. Think kitchen dish towel (less lint) versus terry towel (way more lint). However a tighter weave also means less softness. With cotton, the softer the item the more lint you get. There does come a point with used cotton items where it’s kinda soft and doesn’t have a lot of lint. The sweetspot. We love the sweetspot! But then it passes and the cloth becomes a lint factory. It might be soft but with that softness comes more lint as age causes the little fibers to separate.
THE UNIQUE FORMULATION OF THE BARROCCU & CO MICROFIBRE CLOTH FAR EXCEEDS ANY CONVENTIONAL CLOTH AND ENABLES GREASE, DIRT AND MOISTURE TO BE REMOVED FROM THE MOST SOPHISTICATED OF COATINGS.

WE WORK CLOSELY WITH A SPECIALIST MIRCOFIBRE FACTORY AND THE FIRST PROCESS INVOLVES WEAVING A BASE FABRIC WITH POLYESTER/NYLON (COMPOSITE) YARN.
THE CLOTH IS THEN CHEMICALLY TREATED TO OPEN AND SPLIT THE FIBRES, MAKING THEM FINER. THIS RESULTS IN EXTRA FIBRE CONCENTRATION WITH AIR POCKETS TO LIFT AND HOLD DIRT AND GREASE AWAY FROM THE SURFACE.
EACH MICROFIBRE IS 0.1 DECITEX (1 DECITEX IS EQUAL TO 9/10TH DENIER) LEAVING IT EXCEPTIONALLY SOFT AND FLEXIBLE. THE SPECIAL SHRINKING PROCESS THAT IS THEN USED CREATES A FINISH WHICH MAKES THE FABRIC STRUCTURE UP TO 40 PERCENT DENSER THAN THE ORIGINAL SIZE. THE LARGE SURFACE AREA THIS PRODUCES RESULTS IN OUTSTANDING PARTICLE REMOVAL.
