    Yes you can wash them. Wash them sepratarty from other clothes, and dry on low. No bounce sheets, and no fabric softne.r

    Better yet, don't dry them at all. Just hang them up, that's what I do. No chance of getting anything on them that way.

    so the wax/polish WILL wash out of them?? :cool:



    i stopped at wal-mart after class to see if they had any and found 2 16x24 MF towels (by the dish towels) for $5. figured they were pretty cheap so i might as well try them out (and i think my g/f is gonna get me some waffle-weave for x-mas)

    Wax and polish will wash out, definately. The towels do stain after awhile, but that's normal.

    You can wash mf towels about 300-500 times before they begin to degrade. krazie662 is right on how to wash them.

    i use warm water, liquid detergent, free of any fabric softner, and tumble dry on low.

    I was them completyely seperate from any other towel, or any other clothes.
