    Do you wash PFM or similar drying towels after only 1 use

    The obvious answer is yes but if you're drying a just-washed car the thought does occur about washing less often..... but I really can't take a chance. Just wonder if anyone else does more than 1 "drying" before washing.

    Yes I use Rags to Riches detergent and only dry on low settings. Heat will kill them. Thx.

    I dont -- my large drying specific towels, & the reason is that I blow 98% of the water off anyway you cant hardly even tell it was used- so I will re-use them a time or two, no need to wear'em out washing & drying them when its not needed.

    I don’t reuse the towels. I have about a dozen PFMs and just use them until I have several used, then wash them together. They might look clean but I don’t want to risk them getting contaminated while drying and then scratch the paint.

    Re: Do you wash PFM or similar drying towels after only 1 use

    No...I don't wash my bath towel after every use and I also don't with my drying towels. I blow dry most of the water off the car so the towel is hardly used and I also don't use drying aids with my drying towels. I would say about every 2-3 uses they get washed after getting hung to dry on a drying rack. If I see any visible dirt then it goes in the wash container.

    I have to laugh at guys that use like one towel per "swipe" on their cars on rinseless washes etc. They must do wash like everyday.

    Just use common sense
