What makes Norwex microfiber Antibacterial?
Norwex has developed a unique technology (patent pending) that combines an antimicrobial agent with microfiber. The Antibacterial agent (commonly known as silver) is embedded inside the fine microfiber the size of 0.3 Denier or smaller. The Antibacterial cloths will make the surface you clean “disinfected” by removing microorganisms. The silver technology is based on the natural ability of silver to inhibit the growth of a wide range of harmful microbes. Silver interrupts a bacteria cell’s ability to form chemical bonds essential to its survival. When bacterial cells make contact with silver, they take in silver ions. The ions inhibit several functions within the cells and damage them. The damaged cells are unable to recover because the ions reportedly disable the enzymes that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies. Silver attacks primitive single-celled life thus silver is absolutely safe for huma
