Mikrofasertücher waschen

Beim Mikrofasertücher waschen gibt es einiges zu beachten. Wer seine teuren Tücher einfach mit der normalen Wäsche zusammen in die Waschmaschine wirft, wird nicht lange Freude an ihnen haben.
Deshalb erklären wir dir in diesem Artikel alles rund um das Thema Mikrofasertücher waschen und was du bei der Pflege zu beachten hast. Außerdem möchten wir dir drei geeignete Mikrofaser Waschmittel vorstellen.

Mikrofasertücher richtig waschen

  • Eine Temperatur von 30 bis 40°C ist ausreichend
  • Maximal mit 1000 Umdrehungen pro Minute waschen
  • Spezielles Mikrofaser Waschmittel verwenden (ca. 50 ml)
  • Auf keinen Fall Weichspüler verwenden
  • Nicht mit normaler Haushaltswäsche zusammen waschen
  • Wenn möglich Tücher bei geringer Hitze im Trockner trocknen
  • Bei Lufttrocknung Tücher vorher ausschlagen
Mikrofasertücher richtig waschen

Keinen Weichspüler verwenden

Die Verweundung von Weichspüler ist der Tod für jedes Microfasertuch. Durch Weichspüler verkleben die feinen Fasern des Tuchs. Mit einem speziellen Mikrofaser Waschmittel kann man allerdings verklebten Tüchern neues Leben einhauchen. Oftmals reicht aber ein Waschgang nicht aus und es muss ein zweites mal gewaschen werden um die letzten Verklebungen vollständig zu lesen.

Man sollte seinen Mikrofasertüchern ein spezielles Mikrofaser Waschmittel gönnen. Beim Waschgang ist eine Temperatur von 40°C vollkommen ausreichen. Auch die Umdrehungsanzahl beim schleudern sollte nicht zu hoch gewählt werden, da sonst die mechanische Belastung am Rand der Waschtrommel zu hoch ist. 1000 Umdrehungen sollte man maximal wählen, aber auch schon bei 400 bis 600 Umdrehungen werden die Mikrofasertücher perfekt gewaschen.

Zwar dürfte dir der große, rote Hinweis bereits aufgefallen sein, indem wir ausdrücklich darauf hinweisen keinen Weichspüler zu verwenden aber sicher ist sicher.

Kein Weichspüler!

Nach der Wäsche müssen deine Tücher natürlich auch noch getrocknet werden. Optimal ist es die Mikrofasertücher in den Trockner zu werfen, denn hier werden die Fasern gut gelockert und das Tuch wird wieder schön flauschig. Auch hier solltest du ein schonendes Trockenprogramm wählen. Über 60°C solltest du nicht gehen.

Hast du keinen Trockner zur Verfügung kannst du deine frisch gewaschenen Mikrofasertücher natürlich auch an der Luft trocknen. Am besten schüttelst du die Tücher vor dem Trocknen kräftig aus, sodass sich die Fasern wieder aufstellen. So werden die Tücher auch an der Luft getrocknet wieder flauschig.

Mikrofaser Waschmittel enthält im Gegensatz zu herkömmlichen Waschmittel keine Duftstoffe, Enthärter oder Bleichmittel.
Zusatzstoffe lagern sich in den Mikrofasern ab und reduzieren die Leistung des Mikrofasertuchs von Wäsche zu Wäsche.
Durch das Falsche Waschmittel reduziert sich über die Zeit die Wasser-/Schmutzaufnahme der Mikrofaser und besonders Auto Trockentücher ziehen dann gerne einmal schlieren. Mit einem Mikrofaser Waschmittel hat man diese Probleme nicht.

There are several ways of drying your car. Drying the car with a microfiber towel is one of them. It is a very common one for detailers, because microfiber towels are easy to maintain and re-use, and they minimize the risk of swirls.

Why dry with a microfiber towel

When drying a car, you can do this indirect or direct. Indirect means that you dry the surface without actually touching it (like using an air blowing device). Direct means that you dry the surface by touching it (like wiping it with a microfiber towel).
By drying the surface with a microfiber towel, you minimize the risk of swirls and marring, and you remove the water safely. Water isn’t just made out of water alone. Tapwater especially contains calcium and magnesium, together with several other minerals and trace-elements. When the water starts to evaporate, these minerals and trace-elements stay behind. When you are working on a hot summers day, the sunlight can actually have a little magnifying glass effect within the waterdrop. This can add to the process that etches the minerals into the paint. Making them very hard to remove, and literally damaging your paint on a very small level.

The types of drying

There can be several minor differences, but in essence, there are 2 ways of drying your car with a microfiber towel.

  1. The swipe and drag technique

    This technique is the most common one. The microfiber towel is either pulled over the surface or swiped. This is an effective way to dry the car fairly quick, but there is a very small risk that by dragging the towel over the surface, you create miniature swirls. There is a long lasting discussion between the supporters of this technique and the other technique.

  2. The drop and soak technique

    This technique is not as common, but has a strong group of supporters. The microfiber towel is gently laid down on the surface, allowing it to soak up the water simply by laying on top of it. When the water is absorbed, the towel is simply picked up and laid down on another surface. The advantage is that you don’t move the towel which minimizes the risk of swirls or marring. But it could take more time and perhaps even more different towels.

Both techniques have there pros and cons. The situation might be the answer to what technique is most fitting.

Pros and cons of using a (MF) towel to dry the car

Pros:

  • It is a very effective way because microfiber drying towels can absorb a lot of water
  • The risk of marring and swirls is minimized
  • Microfiber towels will have little to no effects on very soft surfaces or very soft paint
  • A good microfiber drying towel is not only suited for drying, but can also be used to buff off polish, wax, sealant or to clean interior with if needed

Cons:

  • Microfiber towels are not cheap, the good ones are a bit expensive
  • Although they are not difficult to maintain, they still need a bit of care
  • They are not as common to come by as an old t-shirt or blouse

Things to take into account

There aren’t many steps. There are 2 main techniques described above that pretty much sum it all up.
However, there are a few things you need to remember when using a microfiber towel:

  • When a towel is dropped on the floor, put it aside and don’t use it until it has been washed. There can be very small amount of dust, dirt, sand and other particles in the towel. Using it will spread those particles over your paint, and because of the sharp sand it can even scratch the surface.
  • Never wash a towel with fabric softener! The oils in this product will clog up the microscopic fibers. This will have a very negative impact on the performance that is almost impossible to undo.
  • Putting the towel in the dryer after washing can help clean out any dust or lint
  • As with many things, a good towel costs good money. The cheap towels are rarely worth the money spent

Um Poliertücher, Trockentücher, Waschhandschuhe und Applikatoren schonend zu reinigen hat Petzolds dieses Mikrofaser Waschmittel entwickeln lassen.

Mit den zwei 500 ml großen Flaschen hat man genügend Mikrofaser Waschmittel um insgesamt 200 kg Mikrofasertücher zu waschen. Bei 50 ml pro Waschgang dürften die zwei Flaschen also eine ganze Weile halten.

Zusätzlich liegt dem Waschmittel eine detailierte Anleitung bei, wie man Mikrofasetücher am besten wäscht. Diese brauchst du zwar nicht mehr, da du ja jetzt bereits alles über das Waschen von Mikrofasertüchern weißt aber als Erinnerung ist es sicherlich nützlich.
