    Is that blue one folded in the bottom the nice fluffy freebie if you spend £100+ with juicy Jen? I just tumble dry mine, they don't seem to go hard.

    My towels hang on some nails on the shed wall.

    What is the best way to wash these though? in the washing machine, but what soap do you use? if any? and how often?

    Wash after every use at a 40degree wash: liquid non-bio detergent, no fabric softener.

    I like to tumble dry towels as it shakes loose fibres out.



    And this.....Microfiber Madness Dry Me Crazy Towel | Microfiber Madness Car Care & Detailing Products is the best drying towel I've ever used.

    Thanks for the info.

    Do you guys tend to try and use the same cloth for the same part of the car? or after they are washed you just use whichever one for any application?
