Treat with care
Microfibre cloths are a relatively recent cleaning invention and are particularly handy. They are very effective yet gentle - that's why they're great at cleaning TV screens as well as car paint; that's why they're loved by car 'detailers' (professionals and hobbyists fanatical about cleaning the paint and protecting it whilst giving the ultimate shine). The thing is, they are also very delicate so getting rid of wax, polish or sealants from the fibres is a tough ask. The same can be true of microfibre cloths that are used around the home.
Fabric conditioner should never be used with microfibre cloths as it can clog the delicates fibres.
There is an easy way of cleaning them with our traditional cleaning products:
- Pre-soak with Soda Crystals in hand hot water.
- Wash at 40 degC with Liquid Soap as the detergent and white vinegar in the conditioner slot.
- Tumble dry on a low heat setting, preferably with drier balls (or 2 tennis balls).
The Soda Crystals help remove oily residue, the liquid soap gently cleans and the white vinegar helps ensure that any residue (including hard water deposits) are flushed away in the rinse.
