Cleaning microfibre cloths

I was wondering what to clean microfiber cloths with? I know that you should not use detergent - but I was wondering if you just put them in the machine with water - or if you add anything to the washing machine water - if so, what?

Does any particular brand work better than others?

I use non bio wash capsules at about 40-50 degrees depending how dirty, occasionally with white vinegar in the fabric softer drawer.

Only special precautions I've ever been told to take it don't use fabric softer, don't boil wash and don't use washing powder, use liquid or capsules.

Chemical Guys Microfibre Wash and Adam's Microfibre Revitalizer are both excellent dedicated products which I've used regularly for the last 2 years.

I use a 40 degree wash with just a trade non bio liquid - Some of the cloths have been in action on 20 odd cars per day and have only recently been relegated to the sills/wheels tasks

I fill the sink with hot water and put a squirt of Fairy Liquid, then slosh em round a bit and then leave them ten minutes. If they are really stained, i also add a squirt of Stardrops.

They always end up clean again, so i rinse them in plain water and let them dry over the radiator.

Haven't seen any issues with this and they are still soft and fluffy after many uses.

I lob mine in the washing machine along with my hexlogic pads and drying towel. I use liquid detergent.
They come out clean and nobody has died and the paints still on the car.

Washing machine, 40 deg wash and Non Bio for me, I dont favour a particular brand so its whatever Mrs P picks up whilst shopping, she has been buying a whacking great big bottle of stuff from Aldi which seems to do a good job.
