Laundering microfiber cloth and linens is easy, but it should always be done with care! To protect the material, machine washing is recommended, as opposed to hand-washing. When washing microfiber textiles, it is important to use mild detergents that are free of bleach and fabric softeners. Washing on the delicate cycle with cold water helps prevent fabric from becoming damaged. It's also important to avoid using too much detergent in the wash and make sure everything is completely rinsed out before drying. Microfiber items should be gently tumbled on low heat for best results. As an added measure of care for microfiber items, hang them up or lay them flat to dry whenever possible. With these simple steps you can keep your microfiber linens looking great for years of use!
