    Re: You guys throw your drying towels in with other MF's to wash?

    i wash my drying towels with my good paint towels since they dont get very dirty. Thats on the drying towels for paint. The drying towels for trim and door lamb ect get washed with the all purpose towels. I use cotton terry for the real dirty stuff and they all get washed together.

    I separate my good towels by light color and dark colors

    im thinking of going back to tide free as well. Not exclusively just back to a mix of microfiber cleaner and tide free IDK.

    I wash all my "paint towels" together. I add rejuvenator and vinegar to the wash.
    Personally I wonder if your Guzzlers are just old. Mine are a little long in the tooth and don't work quite as well as they used to. I was planning on retiring them this summer and buying new ones. Mine are 3-4 years old at this point.

    The only towels I wash separately are for wheels, tires, wheel wells, and underhood ones. Anything used on the exterior paint gets washed together and in ten years time of doing that, I've not encountered an issue yet.

    I hand wash the wheel/door jamb and really dirty towels first then throw them all in together.

    Final buff/gloss spray towels - These I'm realy picky about as I can't have them get any lint or anything on them from other towels
    If you are getting lint then you have a problem. High-quality spun MF yarn does not shed lint, ever. That is an inherent quality of well-made MF. It is why it is used in the optics field. There is something severely wrong with your product if it is shedding anything at all.

    I never mix anything with drying towels in washer. I use griots PFM and the Gyeon silk dryers and all of them have performed consistently since new with no drop off in effectiveness.

    Just picked up All Free and Clear today at Costco on a couponless discount. I'll probably just use up my existing MF wash and switch to AllFr&Cl since it gets so many positive responses here. I think I'll use the MF cleaner as pre-soak.

    Additionally, I have a front loader which tends to clean better because it is a tumble-and-drop method rather than just mix-and-agitate in the same dirty wash tub in a top loader. I have always felt top-loaders were a crazy idea. All industrial laundry is done via front-loader.

    all my microfiber towels get laundered together with the exception of the non-paint/less important ones (costco/kirkland) which get done separately...
