    As title suggests,

    What is the best way to take care / wash scrim cloths? (waiting for all the jokes) ;)

    Can i wash them with washing powder? ....... ha i know what your thinking lol....

    Do i boil them?

    I just want to give my scrim the respect they deserve...


    Microfibre Cloths

    I don't use any detergent at all, i remember reading that fabric conditioner is no good for them

    A real Newbie question but I'm sure will help others too

    just be careful not to put to much fairy in your washer as there will be built up fairy on your towels any way and your just have a foam party in your kitchen lol

    Best to let them air dry. The drier kills them, makes them loose fabric, and wear out faster just take a look in the lint screen. They also get static cling in the drier as well.

    Does tumble dry mean low heat?
