    Re: Microfiber and Hot Water

    If we are talking about optimization, the goal is to optimize the removal contaminants (dirt, foreign molecules, etc.) from the fibers. Higher temperatures facilitate better separation of those contaminants if you believe the chemistry. In general, the move towards cold water detergents and cleaners is driven by energy savings and not optimizing the cleaning strength of the detergent. For most modern detergents, soaps and cleaners, hot is generally better than cold.

    Re: Microfiber and Hot Water

    I use hot with the steam cycle. Never had a single issue and my towels come out perfectly. I wouldn't trust cold water to release the dirt well enough.
