Kirkland Microfiber Towels

I have a 36 pack of Kirkland microfibers, question is, should I wash them before use, if so which detergent and what temp

Thanks

Rob

Non bio liquid and don't use any softener. 30 will be fine fresh out the pack, I wash mine on 50 when they're fairly dirty.

I always find that after washing them a cool tumble dry gets my towels perfect again.

I've used mine directly without washing first.
However do check the surface of the cloth from any contaminants.

I’ve given up with these clothes, it’s hard to get any debris out of them when washing and even new ones have scratched my clear coat.

Great towels. No need to wash. I use them for the wheels and interior inc cleaning seats. Plush Korean towels used for the car bodywork
