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

    I separate towels like this, Touches paint, doesn't touch paint. When I throw them all it I have had some staining issues. Either caused by wheel cleaners or tire dressings. Since segregating I haven't had anymore staining issues.

    Same here.. if it touches paint, it gets washed with the good load. My best microfibers, drying towels too, microfiber wash mitts as well. I do wash my rinsesless towels separate though.

    Anything that has been demoted to tires, clean up, trim, old microfiber applicators etc. they get washed in this load.

    All my MF car towels get washed together w/ MF detergent. I mean, how many loads of wash am I going to do for MF towels? Life's too short to sort car towels.

    Anytime I'm washing a car, the last thing to touch it is something with DI water - so I mostly let it drip dry and wipe it down. So, drying towels become a non issue.

    Break it down into four groups to avoid cross contamination. Dedicated MF detergent, always a second rinse.
    Drying MF
    MF that touches paint
    Rinseless wash MF
    Costco MF

    I found that adding some vinegar to the softener port along with clear detergent cleans well and keeps the fibers soft. For stains, I spray Meguiars degreaser or apc

    This is fact, distilled white vineger can help remove staining and makes the towels softer, sort of a MF safe softener agent. I used to do this but since segregating towels I haven't had the need to. Also, the towels will smell funky haha.

    I find the vinegar keeps the fuzz done as well

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

    I wash all my towels together, using vinegar in the softener dispenser of the HE washer. Really dirty ones are pre-soaked in Dawn and Oxyclean first. My drying towels (PFM, Guzzlers, Carrand and Meg's) perform as good as when they were new, but I don't use them if I'm using a drying aid, such as D156, AW or OptiSeal. I use my TRC Eagle Edgeless for that task.

    what about interior cleaning; is that thrown in with your paint category?
