    Hi,

    I noticed some different opinions on here about washing microfibre cloths, so I contact one of the manufacturers – Paragon Microfibre, and asked them. About washing, detergents, softeners, tumbled drying etc.

    Their reply was...


    I hope this helps a few people.

    Ive noticed the quality goes down hill if you tumble dry them, they seem to be less absorbant.
