How to Clean Microfiber Towels

Microfiber towels are a handy tool for cleaning just about anything these days. From cars to countertops, these towels cover a wide range of surfaces. An added benefit, is of course the fact that they can be re-used multiple times. This means you can ditch the old rag bin you keep under the kitchen counter.

Now after you've used your microfiber towel, you'll probably notice all the gunk that gets embedded in those tiny fibers. So how does one go about cleaning all this dirt off the towel?

  1. Gather all your dirty microfiber towels.

  2. Pre-soak in a bucket of warm water with dish detergent for 1 hour

  3. Place towels in washer with regular detergent (no bleach or fabric softener).

  4. Line dry or place in dryer (air or low heat only) and voila your towels should be clean!


  • Do not iron towels or place under extreme heat, this will literally melt the microfibers
  • Do not use any bleach or fabric softener when you clean the microfibers. The fabric softener clogs the microfibers while the bleach actually deteriorates the towels
