Microfiber Care Guide

HOW TO PREP YOUR MICROFIBERS BEFORE FIRST USE:
1. Before you use your microfiber towels for the first time, make sure to wash them to remove any loose fibers from factory production.
2. You should always wash newer red, orange, and black colored towels separately from light colored towels. You don't want your colors bleeding.
You may already know that washing your microfibers before first use is recommended. But you may be surprised by how you're supposed to be washing them.
HOW TO WASH MICROFIBER TOWELS:
Quick Cleaning - for lightly soiled microfibers:
You can hand wash your towels with warm water and a mild clean-rinsing liquid soap. Clean-rinsing liquid soaps easily rinse out without leaving behind any residue. Make sure to rinse extremely well, until all soap residue is gone and the only thing coming out of your microfiber is water.

‚Ä®‚Ä®Deep Clean - for heavily soiled microfibers:‚Ä®All of the towels we carry from The Rag Company are machine washable, so you don't need to wash them by hand! Just keep in mind that you don't want to exceed 140¬į F (60¬į C) or you risk melting the fibers. Damaging these fibers can make your towels less effective or worse, completely useless. Especially after many washes. We also recommend keeping your dirty microfibers separate from your other laundry pile. That'll make the next step easier.
1. ONLY run them through the washer with other non-linting fabrics (Definitely don't wash them with cotton!) - Washing micros without other types of fabric helps to maintain the integrity of the towels, which helps to keep their dirt and water gripping properties. Oh, and keeps them lint free! Microfiber is designed to grab and hold onto lint, which is why you should avoid mixing them in with your other laundry.
2. Machine wash with warm water and avoid using hot water.
3. Make sure to use a liquid detergent that is clean-rinsing, mild, and as free of perfumes and dyes as possible. Strong scents used in most detergents can actually coat the fibers of the cloth, which reduces their ability to pick up and grip dust/dirt.
4. Don't use any fabric softener or chlorine bleach. Fabric softener can clog the fibers and reduce their overall performance. Bleach prematurely breaks down the fibers and kills the electrical charge in the towel that is so crucial to their performance.
5. The best way to dry your microfibers is to hang them up to dry outside or inside with plenty of air circulation. If using a machine dryer, make sure to clean out your lint trap thoroughly before loading it up! Dry only with LOW or NO HEAT. You should skip the dryer sheets, as even some of the best out there can clog the towel's fibers.
I'm not sure if anyone actually irons their microfibers, but if you do, you should stop. Ironing microfibers actually melts the fibers. Oh no!

Show Prep = Labor of Love

Everyone knows the best way to get a perfect wash is to do it by hand. And when it's show time, you want every inch of your truck as clean and scratch free as possible. From wash chemicals to top tier wash accessories, we've got you covered. 

"What in the world do you use to wash your truck?!?!" - The question we get the most. Well, here's our secret to maintaining a perfectly polished show truck.

Included Soaps & Recommended Process

This is how we hand wash our trucks every single week and maintain that show shine everywhere we go. Follow these steps, in this order, and you seriously can't go wrong. Always avoid direct heat/sunlight while washing. If you can't avoid the sun, work in very small sections, and be sure to rinse all chemicals off before the sun dries them up. If surfaces are hot to the touch, rinse them with cold water until they cool down before applying chemicals.

All Purpose Degreaser - Start by degreasing your wheel wells, engine bay, tires, interior cleaning, upholstery and anything else that's greasy. We recommend mixing your degreaser in the included IK Trigger Sprayer. Use the included tire brush to agitate the degreaser on your wheels to pull out the gunk, restoring the deep black look you want. Got a lot of degreasing to do? Mix it into a pump sprayer to get the job done quicker. Safe on polished metals when diluted at least 1:1.

Degreaser On Tire

Bug Remover - This one is self explanatory. Spray it on the bugs, give it a couple minutes to break down the bug remains, give it a light scrub with the included bug sponge, and rinse it off. It's also effective as a black streak remover on trailers! 100% safe on polished aluminum, chrome, and stainless.

Once you've done your degreasing and bug removal, it's time for Iron remover.

Bugs On Truck

Iron Remover - Also referred to as liquid clay bar because it's main job is to remove iron particles and industrial fallout that's embedded in your clear coat. Ever run your fingers along your paint and feel tiny little bumps that you can't see? Those are the particles we're looking to eliminate! Spray Iron Remover on your painted surfaces and wheels. It will turn purple as soon as it comes into contact with and liquifies iron particles. Once it's been allowed to work for a couple minutes, rinse it off thoroughly. If you still see purple water rinsing out from crevices, keep rinsing until the water runs completely clear. 

Why Use Our Iron Remover

Platinum Wash - Thick, high lubricity foam that gently glides your wash mitt across your paint. It's safe on all exterior surfaces and is gentle on existing wax protection. This neutral pH formula contains gloss enhancers that make your paint really POP! Rinses completely streak free, smells like cherries, and leaves your paint nice and conditioned. Use it in a foam cannon or bucket and scrub with the included Cyclone Ultra wash mitt for a scratch free finish. 
Platinum Wash On Truck

Wax Replacement - The product that put our name on the map. America's highest rated foam-on/rinse-off protective coating. After your hand wash is complete, foam or pump spray on our Wax Replacement. It instantly enhances the gloss and shine of your paint, provides some UV protection, and is super hydrophobic to repel the elements for 30+ days. 
Water beads from Wax Replacement

This stuff leaves your paint feeling ridiculously slick while bringing out maximum shine. Safe on all exterior surfaces with lasting protection and gloss that puts other quick detailers to shame. 

 Why Use Our Quick Detailer
