    New guy here. Only just starting up. Lots of practice on my windows at home of course, but I've hit a bit of a dilemma with the blue cloths. Can't use a washing machine with them apparently? Much too hot and will damage them. Have searched around the net but can't find a definitive answer as to how to clean them.

    Thought I'd ask here as there can't not be an answer to any WC question on this forum.

    Thanks :)

    You could just turn the temp down on the washing machine? I've never had a problem.

    I don't use fabric softener though

    Mine go in the machine on a 30° wash
    Half hour quickie
    No softener just soap
    If they are not too bad and just window grime on them i sometimes just stick them on a rinse and spin as takes 12 minutes and the soap residue in the cloths cleans them
    But would wash them properly next wash
    Don't tumble dry

    I wash mine at 30 degrees with no added soap and dry them on a radiator or in the sunshine (remember that!)

    Tumble drying is the worst thing to do

    When you use tumble dryer they do not absorb water
