I have some Unger microfiber cleaning pads. Do I wash them in hot water with laundry detergent and then hang dry? Are there any laundry detergents that should not be used to wash them? Thanks.
I have been tossing mine in the wash on warm… i use 3/4 less detergent than i do for a normal load of clothes…
I wash them with my scrims and microfibers.
Im sure you can toss em into the dryer on low, but i let mine air dry.
Also understand that they WILL stain black that will not come out
(Dont try to bleach the stains out) but that does not affect their great cleaning power!!!
I used to wash mine with very little soap and let them air dry … Also do not use those fabric softener sheets.A friend of mine
thought she was going to help me out by doing some laundry for me - washing my blue towels / microfiber pads which i didn’t
know she had used fabric softener as i was out on a job wondering why i was having problems.So i opened up a new
bag of microfiber pads and figured out that she used fabric softener. Thought they felt a little different but didn’t think to much of it
as i had other things on my mind. As cheap as they are i will use them till they are pretty much done and then just throw them away.
Add a 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar to the final rinse cycle.
It REMOVES all traces of detergent.
ALSO… 1/2 cup of vinegar into your first wash of new scrims BREAKS them in…
This acidifies your water making it a great pre-wash for your scrims…(like ungers pre wash…)
When washing microfiber use regular detergent. Do not use a fabric softener. So don’t by those tide with downy combos. Put them in the dryer set to low. Do not use dryer sheets. Also don’t mix your microfibers with other fabrics as they are magnetic and will attract all types of things onto them that is in the machine with it.
Yeah don’t dry them with terry towels , I learn the hard way
If ya space and put in fabric softener, just run a rinse with 1/2 cup distilled white vinager.
Takes it ALL out
Just soap and water for me. I buy the cheap laundry soap because it doesn’t have any fabric softener in it. I am going to try the vinegar idea for the rinse cycle, that makes a lot of sense. bcleanwindows.com/
What a good idea to buy the CHEAP detergent for washing microfibers and such. NEVER even thunk of that!!!
