Step 1 - Washing
Wipe your machine out with a clean, lint free cloth. This is to remove any excess lint left behind in the machine from other clothes, that can become embedded in your microfibre cloths. The put all the cloths and applicators together in your machine, set it to the warm-hot water setting, around 40 degrees, as it helps waxes and oils to be released from the cloths fibres. Don't use just hot water (60 degrees plus) when washing as this can permanently affect the microfibre's absorbency over the longer term.
Add the Microfibre Wash to the detergent dispenser. The amount of cloths you have to clean will depend on how much of the wash you need to use. This wash is a very strong concentrate - when we clean around 30 to 40+ cloths we use only 40 to 60 mls of the wash. If you're only cleaning 5 to 10 cloths, 20 mls will be fine.
Set the machine to a gentle wash cycle and let it do its cleaning magic. Don't use the heavier wash cycles, especially important with the Big Green Sucker and Drop Bear cloths, as we have seen some older machines agitators damage the cloths.
It's critical that you NEVER add a Fabric Softener! This gear will fill up the special fibres so they stop absorbing and effectively kill your microfibre! Likewise don't add bleach or Napisan. This wash will do a better cleaning job and won't damage the material like these others can.
