    or are they one time use only?
    :dunno:

    if you machine wash them, do you separate them by use? i.e. drying towels separate from polishing towels, separate from final wipe towels?

    I wash mine by themselves. If you wash them with other items, just make sure they are lint free. Dry on medium heat.

    I wash mine on regular by themselves with my regular detergent and a cap or so of ONR. Seems to help them release the dirt better.

    I wash on hot and dry on hot. Do not use fabric softener and dry regular MFs from your waffle weaves for drying.

    Keep em really soft by doing a bit of vinegar in the wash every other wash. I use Woolite as my detergent of choice and definitely no fabric softener.
