softener residue in microfiber cloths

How do you remove fabric softener residue from microfiber cloths?

I normally wash them with towels & sheets that don't get fabric softener. However, sometimes I miss and they get mixed in with other loads that do get the softener sheet in the dryer. I noticed today that my dishcloth would not wet easily; so it must have been in a load that got softened. How do you strip that residue off?

Your dryer itself may have enough softner buildup to affect the cloths whether you use a dryer sheet that particular load or not. Rewashing as usual will remove it unless it is the dryer itself.
