UH-OH!! Did I ruin my microfiber cloths?

jonsgirlMay 19, 2009

I bought another package of them at WalMart and when I got home I realized my bag with my Downy FS was leaking, ALL OVER MY NEW MICROFIBER CLOTHS! I know FS is a big no-no, are they ruined or can I just wash them and they will be ok? Should I add anything to the wash like ammonia or anything to cut the film of the Downy? I am so mad, I was just telling the cashier how much I love them and how to care for them and then this happens! Thanks for any suggestions!!

I don't use fabric softener so this is just a guess. You could try soaking them in a bit of vinegar. I know it cuts soap so it may help get the fabric softener out.

My guess would be that if you wash them several times in hot water and detergent, you will wash out the fabric softener.
