    Hey guys, how about a little write up on how you look after your kit - like keeping washmitts clean, cleaning pads etc? Especially chamois/drying towels, they are a nightmare!!!

    I never know the best way to clean stuff and what to use to clean it with so I end up throwing "soft" things into the machine with only a tiny amount of detergent and using carwash (a cheap one) for the other stuff...

    Thanks

    In the car care guides on our website, the last paragraph is usually dedicated to this very subject; for example, the wash guide ends...

    "The final step in the washing process is to pack away all of the tools you have used, making sure everything is clean and ready for the next use. Firstly, you should thoroughly rinse out your buckets, and then store them upside down until they are next required. Secondly, you should rinse out any scrubbing brushes and then leave them to dry out naturally. Finally, you should rinse out your wash mitts and drying towel and then wash them all in a washing machine at a low temperature using a gentle non-biological liquid detergent (avoid soap powders and detergents containing bleach or fabric softeners), before allowing everything to dry out naturally."

    So, rather than copy it all up here, here is the link to the index page for the guides, pick one and scroll to the end for care tips on the equipment used.
