Default How do you wash your microfibers?

I usually just ask my wife to give them a quick rinse in the washer but have been thinking about buying some of the microfiber wash available through the online dealers.

If you use one of the specific microfiber washes which one do you prefer and why?

Thanks in advance.

This is what I use. They make my towels feel nice and soft after washing them even though they have caked on wax and polish on them. I even used it on some old raggedy microfibers and they very a whole lot better after letting them soak.

I wash mines with a solution that I bought from Chemical Guys. I buy all my detailing stuff from Chemical Guys.

+1 to the pinnacle micro rejuvenator. I used to use a cap full of dish soap, double rinse, and dry in dryer (without any fabric softener). Now I just use the pinnacle micro rejuvenator, single rinse, and dry. The dish soap method would clean them, but occasionally I would get streaking while removing waxes and such, this is not a problem with the pinnacle. Also, the towels feel softer and fuller if that makes sense.

Dave, Griot's Garage in Tacoma sells a microfiber cleaner. I've used it for several years. It does a good job of cleaning and restoring the softness to microfiber.

I use Tide Free with an extra rinse afterward, then dry them on low.

Not sure how many people know this, but heat kills microfibers faster than anything. Tumble dry them on low if you can.
