Archived Blog Posts for Auto Detailing Towels

Properly caring for your auto detailing towels is one of the most crucial things you can do as a detailer. Detail King formulated Micro-Klean, a special detergent specifically for microfiber wash mitts, mops, and towels.

Micro-Klean will remove all of the waxes, polishes, oils and chemicals that are absorbed into microfiber towels. A regular household detergent doesn’t come close to cleaning and restoring them like our Microfiber Towel Detergent Soap will.

Wash your microfibers together. Wash your window towels together, and keep your cleaning towels together. By segregating your towels, you ensure that dirt, grime, lint, etc., won’t comingle and contaminate other towels that are used to clean windows or polish or remove wax.

Here at Detail King, our microfiber towels are machine washable.
