The Lobster Wash treatment
When your cloths get very old, you will sometimes find that they keep streaking as they have lost their absorbancy. If this happens, you may need to get a bit more full-on with cleaning them... The Bowden Lobster Wash treatment!
Slow boil the microfibre cloth in a pot of water; letting the cloths be in the water for a maximum of 10 minutes. Keep the cloths submerged as much as possible, as you will see a heap of wax/residue on the surface of the water that can get back into the cloth. After boiling, drain the top oily water off, making sure not adding this residue back into the cloth.
Only lobster your cloths as a last resort to bring your cloths back to being usable.
If this doesn't work, it's time to retire the cloth to other cleaning duties and get a new one for the job.
