- Hot water works best to rinse all that yucky stuff down the drain.
- Between uses, rinse + wring out the cloth thoroughly, and hang to air dry.
- Machine wash up to 140°F, using a little detergent
- Tumble dry or hang the cloths to dry.
It is the tiny voids within and between the microfibers that make e-cloth products work so darn well. It is those voids that attract dirt, bacteria - you know, the yucky stuff. Fabric softener and dryer sheets are designed to leave "gunk" (i.e. - chemicals!) behind on fabrics. This "gunk" clogs those voids and blocks the fibers from pick up duty.
Excessive use of bleach can destroy the fibers of the cloth, rendering them damaged and irreparable. Since the power of e-cloth is in its premium fibers, the performance of the product is dependent on their integrity and fortitude.
You may use any type of laundry detergent to clean your e-cloth products. Avoid the use of combo products that include the use of fabric softener with the detergent.
When cleaning up grease and grime, it's normal for your cloths to stain. As long as you follow the standard cleaning instructions, stains will not affect the cleaning performance. Stains will fade over time.
Now that you're schooled on the ways of washing microfiber cloths, mop heads, scrubbers, and pads, you're ready to graduate to cloth-ownership.
