Does microfiber furniture off gas more or less than fabric

    Microfiber is plastic, so it outgasses.

    Natural cotton, for example doesn’t. (Although the finishes, dyes, etc. that are put on cotton fabric may.) The URL below explains. The comments are also worth reading.

    What this source doesn’t mention is that very recently a new problem with microfiber was discovered, which is that when cleaned, 1,000s of tiny particles break off, and go straight into the air, where you can breath them, or into your food, or your pets’ water dishes, etc. This is a very recent discovery from a study, so the consequences are unclear. But the researchers are guessing this is a severe problem, and that there is currently no way to address it.

    Can you say “Ouch”?
