My microfiber cloths are starting to get a bit dirty now and rather than just buy more I thought I could wash my old ones ... but what's the best way to wash microfiber cloths??

Hand wash or machine wash?
Hot water or cold water?
Soap or no soap?
Fabric softener or no fabric softener?

..... so many options :blink:

Any help much appreciated :)

Machine wash with a liquid detergent, no softener.

Or use a specific microfibre wash, I use the chemical guys one, there is a sonus one too

I just bung them on a long 2.5hr wash cycle with couple of persil's finest @ 60degrees. No fabric softener.

I can justify 2.5hrs as I do tend to be washing 50 - 60 at a time lol

I stuck a load in with a normal wash load - along with some 'car use' hand towels (just as good for polishing imho).

The misses went Fcuking bananas. Came out clean but everything had a wierd smell to it. :nutter:
Next time I'll double up on detergent.

60 deg wash,
non-bio liquid/gel, no conditioner.

To revive them a bit when they aren't that great thro in some white wine vinegar in the wash.
good as new :thumb:

chuck em in the dryer with a couple of towels and a couple of those "home dry cleaning" sheets you can buy.

they maintain their qaulity better then, only works if you havnt let them get mingin filthy tho.

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates

you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.
