Washing Microfibre Towels

I've tried searching without success to see if anyone had posted this link to Dri-Pak's video on washing microfibre towels so here goes:
http://www.dri-pak.co.uk/how-to-clea...42c5-131173557
Hope you find it useful.
The beauty of Dri Pak products is they are not expensive especially the pure soap flakes for washing Gore-Tex (when compared to a well known brand for this purpose)

I normally put my soda crystals in the machines powder compartment, and use non bio in a ball in the machine. Vinegar in the softner compartment.
Works for me. I may try the pre soak next time for really dirty clothes.

Cheapest most effective cleaner for Microfiber towels ive come across is boots sensitive liquid Landry detergent Perfume,Enzyme and Phosphate free no conditioners

and its NOT a powder

You should NEVER use any powder on your MF's as some of the powder may not all dissolve and do you want to rub a MF with any powder in it against your car paint work

and also the ball idea sounds bad as it can lead to damaging the MF's

Ive tried quite a few different "dedicated" microfiber cleaners and the boots stuff is the best ive used

Good tip, I'm using Polish Bliss' Micro Restore microfibre cleaner, then chuck them in the tumble drier so they come out all nice and soft.

Tumble drying does make a lot of difference to softness I find, also gets the last lose fibers of compared to air drying.

+1 for the Boots sensitive, the best i've come across so far @ £ 3.89 per litre, certainly better than the over priced dedicated microfibre cleaners by a mile.

Thanks Bruce

Glad others have found this a good product as I haven't heard many others use it, I recommend it to any one that I can

Another vote for the boots liquid. I wouldn't pay the price for the dedicated branded anymore

Yep paid £8 I think for the Chemical Guys Microfibre Wash 500ml once and once only, no brainer for the Boots stuff half the price for twice the amount and best of all you can get the Mrs to buy it when she goes shopping and not get scowled at for wasting more money on that bl__dy car

Been using soda crystals, vinegar and the ball method for years. Never had a problem yet.
