    Default Cleaning Microfibre Cloth's

    To whom it may concern Here is a way of keeping your micro-fibres clean without resorting to the rip-off specialist cleaners. The products are produced by Dri-Pak and are available from some discount stores as well as Ocado.

    Fabric conditioner should never be used with microfibre cloths as it can clog the delicates fibres.

    There is an easy way of cleaning them with our traditional cleaning products:

    Pre-soak with Soda Crystals in hand hot water.
    Wash at 40 degC with Liquid Soap as the detergent and white vinegar in the conditioner slot.
    Tumble dry on a low heat setting, preferably with drier balls (or 2 tennis balls).

    The Soda Crystals help remove oily residue, the liquid soap gently cleans and the white vinegar helps ensure that any residue (including hard water deposits) are flushed away in the rinse.

    Me too Pete. 30C quick wash with washing clothes stuff in the drawer. I do not use fabric conditioner because I find on regular towels they seem to have an almost slight wax feeling and don't dry so well.
    Unfortunately her who knows better does use conditioner on regular towels

    Note to forum moderators can this thread be banned as its going on about washing machines ........ this is leaving me feeling totally inadequate as my expertise extends to opening the door

    I would also like to propose a double lifetime ban if anyone admits to ironing their car cloths

    I use a steam press rather than iron.
