Your microfiber towels tend to be the last step for most, if not all detailing process. And for that reason, you have to care for them as if they weren't 'just a towel', you have to be kind to them. And that doesn't mean telling them how nice and soft they are (although, you still could do that if you'd like, it will just be a little strange), but an actual proven way to make microfiber last longer.
Let's dive in!
One of great things about microfiber towels is that they can last for hundreds of washes! But first, there are three key factors to remember: no fabric softener, no bleach and no heat when in the dryer.
Wash your microfiber towels in warm or hot water with just some mild detergent, we recommend Wolfgang Microfiber Cleaner & Rejuvenator . Wolfgang Microfiber Cleaner & Rejuvenator is formulated for high efficiency (HE) washing machines, designed to deep clean microfiber by effectively removing oily and greasy residue. What's great about Wolfgang Microfiber Cleaner & Rejuvenator is that is preserves the soft texture and unique absorption qualities. Plus, you only require one ounce or two ounces depending on the size of the load.
Add one ounce of the Wolfgang Microfiber Cleaner & Rejuvenator to a half-load of towels in the washing machine (two ounces for a full load) and set to "hot cold" and a heavy wash cycle. Lucky for you, Wolfgang Microfiber Cleaner & Rejuvenator comes in with a built-in measuring cup so that you can get the proper amount of product with just a simple squeeze.
But remember, just add the towels! Even if you have the space to add more clothes, don't. This is because the static nature of microfiber will attract every bit of lint coming from the other clothing items. So, it's best just to keep the washing and drying of your microfiber towels separate from everything else. In general, it's best to keep your towels separate from other clothing, even when in the laundry basket.
Once that buzzer goes off and you can add the newly washed towels into the dryer, set the dryer to tumble dry on a very low heat or, better yet, no heat at all.
Another option? Maybe you don't have easy access to washer and dryer? In this case, you could hand wash in hot water with your detergent and a soft bristled brush.
