How to use microfiber face cloths

Updated February 21, 2017

Microfiber face cloths are quite popular and are used to clean dirt and grime from the face. The cloth absorbs dirt, grime and oil without the use of chemicals. Microfiber cloths can also be used to remove make-up and to exfoliate the skin, leaving it smooth, soft and glowing. When microfiber face cloths are used correctly, they can provide maximum benefits. To start enjoying the benefits of your microfiber face cloth, apply these basic steps.

Wet the microfiber face cloth with warm tap water. Squeeze the excess water from the cloth.

Exfoliate your face by gently scrubbing the skin in a circular motion. Start scrubbing from the middle of the face to the outer area for at least 90 seconds.

Rinse your face with cool water and pat dry it with a soft towel. Exfoliating the face should be done at least one to two times weekly to prevent removal of excess skin layers.

Remove make-up by wetting the microfiber face cloth and gently wiping it away from the face. Wash the microfiber cloth with mild soap and warm water. Warm water helps the cloth to swell so it can expel the dirt that was absorbed.


Don't use bleach on microfiber cloths, as this will destroy the fibres.
