    I have a pile of dirty rags and towels I've used over the summer cleaning my car. What do you guys do to clean the rags so you can reuse them? I'm afraid to put them in my washer and drier because that oil and grease will come off and foul up my clothes...

    btw this forum rocks

    Don't worry about washing them in the washing machine. That is what I do with mine. You might want to presoak oily/greasy towels in the sink and then rinse them out before putting in the wash.

    Do not use any farbic softener at all--it will leave a residue on your paint.

    just take them to a laudromat and wash them there

    worth the couple bucks instead of dirtying your machine

    I don't use bleach on my towels, but I have to wash them every day or two and bleach would break down the fabric of the towels more quickly. Occasional use should be fine for them.
