Default How do you get wax off your microfiber towels?

Hey all,

I buy the 7 pack micro-fiber towels from like wal-mart or lowe's. They're like those double-layer stiched ones. Well they work beautifully when I need to wax my car, but I go through like 2 of them each time. If I put them in the washer, the wax doesn't really come off the towels, the dry chunks just stick too well. It'd be impossible to sit there and do it by hand...any ideas?

Thanks!

Wash them on hot, and add a half cup (or more) of vinegar to your rinse cycle. I've never had anything stick to my towels with this combo

Try using a waxing sponge instead to wax your car. Much easier to clean and apply IMO. I only use MF towels to buff wax off, never put the wax directly on them.
