We're living the microfiber revolution.
Pro detailers use color-coded, task-specific microfiber cloths and towels for greater efficiency, lower friction and scratching, and easier washing, rinsing and drying.
Mike Pennington, director of training and consumer relations for Meguiar’s, emphasizes that it's important to wash your microfiber as a separate load, not mixed in with the regular laundry and rags. Microfiber will trap the lint from cotton towels, defeating the purpose of the wash.
Use little detergent and skip the fabric softener, which will coat the fibers and inhibit microfiber's qualities. Double up on the rinse cycle, and your microfiber will perform at its best. Remove any labels and stitching before you use your towels to avoid scratching. And remember, you get what you pay for; cheap packs of microfiber from the warehouse store are not as high quality as the ones you can find at online specialty stores.
