    i wash mine with a pea sized amount of fairy liquid and air dry them if you put them in the tumbler they go all rubery, as for the fluff/lint thats normal it usually just blows off the windows

    When I used to use scrims I used to put them in the washing machine with no detergent then just let them air dry!

    I just throw my scrims, micro fibres and applicator sleeves in the washer together. Stick them on an hour wash at 60c and then stick them either on the washing line or the radiator to dry. I usually give the slightest squirt of fairy in the drum depending how much soap is still in the applicator sleeves.

    I don't use them anymore apart from wiping sills down, I use micro suede for drying the edges and cleaning glass.
