    Sorry for the late bump, very very helpful thread. Thanks to all who contributed. I've referenced this thread often, and figured I'd toss out a thanks while I was using this info again.

    Re: Cleaning MF towels, sponges and MF buffing pads

    Wow, what an awesome thread, thanks to all contributors! A few points of clarification please: I've never used APC or APC+ before:

    1) Do they need to be diluted prior to spraying onto microfiber? If so, at what ratio?

    2) After spraying them, is there any need to "work it into" the towel or pad and rinse? Or is it just spray, then throw into the washing machine?

    3) Finally, pre-treating with APC make it safe to wash towels, pads, and applicators with different products (UQD, UQW, UC, UP, NXT Tech Wax, etc) in the same wash batch? That would be immensely helpful as I only detail my family's two cars, and it takes a while to accumulate enough towels to wash in a medium/large load.

    You guys rock!!

    1. Yeah, you would want to use them at the usual dilutions. I tend to mix about 8:1 for everything.

    2. It all kind of depends on how dirty things are. I dont see a lot of need for anything more than regular soap most of the time. But then just stepping up to a stronger cleaner if needed, working it in more if needed.

    3. I tend to do my foam applicators by hand, but you can always throw all the towels together. Just keep the MF and terry towels seperate.
