    Quoted from statictrance:

    Stupid question time - how do you guys clean your microfiber rags? I saw there was a few different cleaning solutions, or just toss em in the washer? (Or pitch them?) I usually throw my dirty ones in a pile, then they get repurposed around the garage/house in between shop outs, but it's been a busy 2019 so far and I have like two dozen in a pile. Any recommendations?

    I do the same thing I do with the ones I use for my cars: do a wash load with light soap using ONLY those towels. I separate the heavy from lightly soiled -- lightly I'll re-use for cars/playfields/etc, heavy I just relegate as a shop rag.

    EDIT: To be clear, I separate them BEFORE washing -- I don't wash the heavy and lightly soiled ones together. I realized I didn't make that clear.

    EDIT2: Never use fabric softener, only a small amount of scentless soap.

    Quoted from pinheadpierre:

    I also seem to remember Vid saying no fabric softener because it will ruin the absorbency of the fabric?

    That's correct
