Construction: Helen's 14”x17” Microfiber Bar Towels is a more effective longer lasting alternative to traditional cotton bar towels. These lint free terry type microfiber towels are made up of hundreds of thousands of split fibers which allow the cloths to absorb a tremendous amount of liquid without leaving streaks behind. Also known as microfiber bar mops, these towels are constructed from woven polyester / polyamide blend microfiber. The open spaces in the fibers created by the splitting process are what give the towels its ability to hold dust and dirt as well as its ability to absorb liquid. The edges of the towels are sewn with over lock stitching which greatly increases the life of the towel. The towels also feature the traditional gold stripe of a bar mop which helps identify where to use them. When cared for properly our 14”x17” Microfiber Bar Towels can last hundreds of washings, compare that with traditional cotton bar towels which may be unusable after 20-30 washings.
Uses: The primary application for our Microfiber Bar Towels is for use in bars and restaurants. Since the towels absorb so well we find that our customers use these to replace their cotton towels everywhere in the restaurant except for the kitchen. They’re great for wiping down tables, chair, and bars as well as for drying and polishing glasses behind the bar. Since microfiber is a synthetic material make sure you NEVER use it around heat such as on grills or as a pot holder. They also make a great low cost all purpose microfiber cleaning towel, they feature the same great characteristics that make the rest of our microfiber towels so effective as a duster and scrubber.
