The Science Behind PerfectCLEAN®
PerfectCLEAN® is a textile product and the only product patented with built-in antimicrobial protection and is capable of trapping and removing more than 99.99% of bacteria on hard surfaces.

PerfectCLEAN® high performance materials are knitted with the highest quality micro-denier filaments made to the company's specification. Produced by a complex manufacturing process, the resulting microscopic fibers achieve an individual fiber size of approximately four to six microns; bacteria range from one to eight microns by comparison. The microscopic size combined with the high percentage of fiber used dramatically increases the surface area of the finished material, resulting in a textile that penetrates invisible crevices in surfaces to trap and remove contaminants.

PerfectCLEAN® products are based on patented technology that combines antimicrobial chemistry with micro-denier fibers.
