    what to do with wet drying towels?

    I put my wet towel back in the plastic box it came in, its damp.

    Back in the plastic box? Are you using an Absorber towel that recommends doing this? Generally speaking, a good, high quality microfiber waffle weave drying towel should be washed and dried (along with your wash mitt) after each use.

    its one of these, I was going to get the water magnet but I had already got this one. The box is handy for keeping it clear of dust and muck in the garage, and it can hang from a peg too.

    I havent got round to washing it all yet.

    there's the mitt, drying towel, and 3 shine towels, and 2 MF applicator/cleaning pads.. are they ok to go in the same wash?

    If it is going to go in something sealed, it really needs to be dry.

    And yeah, all MF things are usualy ok together, unless the items direcions said different. Just want to keep terry cloth away from them.

    I tend to wash applicators by hand though... the foam inside seems to break down faster otherwise.

    yeah, I washed the applicators in the sink last night and they are clean. I used one on the interior with the interior cleaning stuff. that is very good stuff.. the plastic/vinyl looks brand new.

    I would wash, hang dry that mf towel and store in a plastic tote.

    Btw...I would never dry my car like in that video, I would pat dry, ring out, rinse MF, repeat....I usually use 2 drying towels though...

    Towel #1 will be used to get 90-95% of the water...the 2nd to get the remaining 5-10%
    I use near retired MF towels to get at the door jambs/ trunk/ hood jambs
