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

    Was just wondering about this. Went crazy on the truck last week. Full soup-to-nuts de-con, clay, AIO & wax.

    Threw all my towels (meaning my AIO & wax removal towels plus my drying towels) into the wash with my Pinnacle MF cleaner, then dried them like usual on very low heat. They came out very clean as always. Fold, bag, and put back on the shelf.

    It rained like crazy here yesterday, and today after the mist subsided, (still cloudy though) I went out and knocked the excess water off the truck.

    Thing is, the towels (Cobra Guzzlers) seemed a little lacking from their norm. (IMO). You guys think they got some AIO (Speed) or wax (845) transfer from the wash?

    I wash all my towels together and have noticed no ill effects. Still using the same soap? I still like Tide Free and Clear. I've used the soaps formulated for microfibers and still keep going back to Tide. Tide just cleans better.

    Yeah, same product from Pinnacle I've always used. Happy with it too. Maybe I'm old & imagining things, but I'm usually pretty in tune with how anything works (or does not work), and I swear the Guzzlers were not quite themselves today.

    I separate wheel and tire towels and wash them with heavy vinyl/rubber/plastic dressing towels. The rest I wash together.

    I don't like my guzzler. Maybe it's just me, but of all my towels (Griots, Big Blue, Dry Me a River, Guzzler), the guzzler doesn't guzzle any more. It is middle aged among my towels.

    I know they aren't the "cat's meow" lately. But they have always been adequate for me. I use my leaf blower and the Guzzlers do the "mop up" work. Not into buying a more expensive towel right now. It's fishing season here, and bucktails, lead, and live bait cost a pretty penny.

    Just thought I noticed a bit of difference today.

    ...but the thought had occurred to me that I did get my Guzzler embedded with a bunch of sealant that hasn't come out. Maybe I'll try soaking it in some degreaser for a while and washing again.

    I wash my towels separately in batches to keep contamination and lint to a minimum. Usually in four batches.

    My main product removal towels for polishes/sealants\
    Rinseless Wash Towels
    Lower end/demoted MF towels for inside doors and interior or wheels
    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
