    Default Cloth cleaning

    When I first got me Megs cloths they were awesome! But after a run in with a cool wash and no softener (as per the packet) they've lost alot of their qualities...especially the water magnet! (I have bought a new one!)

    So....How do you guys n gals clean ya cloths?

    as per the instructions mate.

    the microfibres are still great, not so sure about the water magnet anymore. TBH i don't know if it was ever fantastic, even when i first bought it.

    doesn't bother me though because i always go over the car with detailing spray and a microfibre after its been washed! gets rid of any watermarks and brings out the shine.

    I tried using Ecover washing liquid for my cloths and washmitts on a delicate cycle at 30 C and wash and was very pleased at the results. Used it for 12 months now.
    Microfibre cloths arn't the best in quality and won't last long.

    The Megs water magnet doesn't get a great press, especially over on DW. My favourite is the Poorboys waffle weave drying towel.

    I bung my Meg microfibre cloths and water magnet in the machine with some bio soap powder - they come up a treat.

    I wasn't impressed with the Meg WM when I first used it - until I washed it for the first time! That totally changed it - worked much better.

    I use one of these: http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acatalog/pb123wash.html

    After trying the megs water magnet, the Poorboy's towel is much better.

    My Water Mag was fantastic when I first used it.....Since I washed it.....naff! So I've gone out and bought a second and don't want to ruin it!

    That's bizarre! (that we had completely opposite experiences). You didn't use fabric softener did you? - or a powder/tablet/liquid with it built-in to it?

    All my cloths including the MWM get washed on a 40deg wash cycle and ofcourse no softener all are still looking good with the exception of the MWM although they do get used every other day

    Just incase anyone wants to know about pads for their PC I wash by hand with a touch of fairy and woolite (available from Sainsbury's), just massage it in adding a bit of warm water form time to time and then rinse allow to dry in the cupbored that has the central heating boiler in it
