Washdolly Science


Washdolly is a microfiber cloth made of two synthetic polymers:  75% polyester and 25% polyamide.  Polyester likes to bind to fat, that is why the cloth works well to wipe away grease and dirt without the need of chemicals.  The clever production technique increases the surface area of the long tiny fibers. Polyester and polyamide are arranged as alternating wedges (see microscopic photo) that are split up by high pressure jets which create many extremely fine fibers.  When water is applied to the cloth it is stored between the pores of the fiber rather than binding directly to them.  The result is a much faster drying fabric. Microfibers are able to attach themselves to the tiniest microscopic dirt particles because of a microscopic adhesive force between microfibers and dirt  known as van derr Waals forces.  The Dutchman van derr Waals was a chemist (1827-1923), he won the Nobel Prize for discovering this force which explains why geckos can be seen on walls and ceilings by using zillion of hairs on the bottom of their toes.

Result: We have this sticky force attracting dirt and grease by millions of microfibers in this highly porous material with a large surface area that fits in the palm of your hand and removes your makeup with ease and cleans your face.



Washdolly Sweat is made of 40% Bamboo Charcoal fibers, 50% polyester & 10% polyamide.
Some benefits for having some Bamboo Charcoal fibre in your workout towel are as follows:
  • Bamboo charcoal fibers have the property of far-infrared radiation which has great health benefits. These rays emitted by the bamboo charcoal are able to penetrate through your skin, dislodge toxins and stimulate the water molecules in their path thus promoting a better blood circulation, increase cellular energy, and promote and improve body metabolism. Another reason to drink lots of water after a workout or relaxation practice.
  • Amazing absorption and deodorizing abilities – Bamboo charcoal fabric is highly porous which enables it to absorb high amounts of moisture, but can also absorb chemicals and toxins from your skin and the air. The elimination of odors is a plus as well.
  • Antimicrobial and Antibacterial Fabric– Bamboo Charcoal fiber effectively decomposes the micro-organisms attached to its surface and in the air around it.  Bamboo has natural antibacterial qualities. This charcoal knit fabric has resistance to the development of mold and mildew. In addition to being antibacterial bamboo charcoal is also antimicrobial. Antimicrobial fabrics kill microorganisms that could be present on your skin.
