Recommended Care for your Microfiber Cloths and Towels


Separate the microfiber cloths and towels from other laundry

Microfiber is very clingy to other fabrics. As they are designed, they pick up lint and dust and debris from anything and everything.
To reduce this risk, wash alone or in a delicate laundry bag.


Use liquid laundry detergent

We recommend Clear & Free Microfiber Detergent. It is super concentrated and a little goes a long way. Where do you it? Right here at The Outlet.


Wash Alone in Cold Water

Wash in cold water.


Dry on Low or No Heat

You want to use a dryer if possible, with no anti-static products.  Static cling is one of the key benefits of microfiber, so you want to generate and store as much of it as you can during the drying process.  Heat will destroy the static cling rendering the cloth useless as a dust or dirt collector. NO FABRIC SOFTENER.

DON'T


Use the cloths to clean up grease, oil or polish

Your cloths will have grease stains and flattened patches.  For greasy or dirty jobs, or jobs involving polish, use cotton or paper towel.

DON'T WASH IN HOT WATER

Heat ruins the fibers, and repeated exposure to heat will render the cloth useless.

NO FABRIC SOFTENERS USED IN WASHING OR DRYING.

Fabric softener ‘clogs’ the fibers and binds them together.  This reduces their absorbency and ability to wipe away liquids and trap dust.  If you do this, you’ll see that the cloths performs similar to a cotton washcloth…not very well.


USE BLEACH SPARINGLY

Bleach CAN ruin the integrity of the cloth.
