Microfiber Dishtowels and Dishcloths by DII
Microfiber is densely constructed polyester and polyamide (nylon) fibers that are approximately 1/16th the thickness of a human hair. When woven together, these fibers create a net-like surface area, covered with millions of spaces to trap moisture, dirt and debris. The micro-fibers are able to get into tiny nooks and crevices whereas the traditional cotton cloth and mop fibers cannot. The nylon component of the fiber also produces a static charge that attracts dirt, pulling it in and trapping it until the cloth or pad is washed.
Why Should I Use Microfiber?
Microfiber is a lint-free, non-abrasive, and hypoallergenic product that allows you to clean without the use of harsh chemicals. Unlike traditional cotton and paper wiping products or cotton mops that tend to push or smear dirt and grime, microfiber actually gets underneath the dirt and germs, lifting them from the surface and trapping them until the cloth or mop is laundered. Microfiber is very absorbent and can hold up to seven times its weight in moisture. Microfiber dust cloths are safe on all surfaces. Microfiber can also be used with a diluted disinfectant. If you choose to use chemicals, you can use less by diluting the chemical with water.
How Do I Get the Most Out of My Microfiber?
Microfiber cleaning towels work best when used slightly damp. For optimum results, mist the microfiber towel with tap water and wipe; no chemicals are needed. If the towel leaves streaks while cleaning, it is too damp or too dirty and needs to be washed. Microfiber is safe on all surfaces. For polishing and dusting, microfiber towels are best when used dry.

However, when I purchase a cleaning cloth I expect it to work as such. These? I don't know what you could even call them because they neither wash dishes/kitchen appliances or countertops well, nor do they dry anything AT ALL (all they leave is a streaking wet mess!).
I should have returned them, but had hoped that after several washings they'd get better. No such luck. They literally are useless to me since they do nothing. Seriously, how hard should it be to buy a cleaning cloth? Well, I found out it really isn't easy at all since you have no way of knowing if the darn thing washes or dries anything until you get it home and use it. Gone are the days of purchasing simple dish cloths, I guess.
My advise is to pass on this. Not sure what the manufacturer was attempting to create but you can't even call this a "kitchen rag" because it doesn't even work for that.
I'm rarely this harsh on any review but I think others who rely on reviews for honest opinions by others who've purchased the item deserve to know how good or bad a product is
Softness: Me and my wife have dry hands in the winter. This causes cracking of our skin which makes it painful to wash our hands and dry them with a rough towel. Drying my hand with these towels is like drying my hand with a pillow from heaven.
Absorbency: I am not a fan of microfiber-like towels because I always found that they smeared the liquid more than they absorbed it. These blew-my-mind. I opened them, felt them, and seriously thought that they would suck. Expecting them to not dry my hands in the least bit, I washed them. When I grabbed hold of the towel, it immediately started absorbing the water -- no smearing, no excessive drying necessary. Honestly, I am kind of curious to see how much water these would actually hold when fully saturated.
Smell: Usually my towels start smelling after a couple of days without washing. These seem to be of a higher resistance to smells. This is my own opinion though.
Durability: I have washed them a couple of times and have not noticed any dip in durability. I fully expect these to be quality towels for a very long time. I literally threw-away all of my old towels, and bought a second set about two hours ago. I have never been this enamored by hand towels before, and I am a 29 year old male.
I strongly recommend these towels for a soft, durable, yet wildly absorbent towel experience.
I hate to throw two sets of these away so I now use these polyester microfiber towels as hand towels. Although they feel soft, they aren't good for people with dry hands (the fabric sticks to rough skin and cuticles, so they're not ideal for my family in the winter). These clothes are advertised in the title as cleaning cloths but I don't use to clean with these either: they just sort of push dust and dirt around instead of cleaning. I have other micro-fiber cloths that seem to dust and polish better.
My typical reviews are positive; in fact, this is my first negative one. I'd advise that if you're buying as a decorative towel to go for it, but otherwise to pass.
