How to Wash and Dry Microfiber Towels

How to wash and dry microfiber towels

Microfiber towels are a staple for many window cleaners. However, they should not be washed the same way you typically do laundry.

  1. Wash and dry separately. Microfiber’s static nature will attract every particle of lint from your other garments.
  2. Use scent-free liquid detergent. Powdered detergent doesn’t completely dissolve, meaning your towels will be filled with tiny bits of detergent, which is not ideal for cleaning glass. Make sure you use a clean-rinsing detergent, without perfumes, and without built in fabric softeners.
  3. Don’t dry with heat. Microfiber towels contain a synthetic material called polyamide, which can turn into plastic when heated up. Again, a towel full of tiny pieces of plastic is not what you want.
  4. Don’t use fabric softeners. They repel water by clogging the open pores in the fabric, and you need your towels to soak up water.
  5. Don’t use bleach. Using bleach eliminates the electric charge, which is what you need for the towel to be effective.
