    Cleaning your... uhm, cleaning products!

    How do you guys clean your cloths etc? Do you just throw away and use new ones every time?

    What about the foam applicator pads? Do you just re-use them because the wax goes soft when it's warm anyway?

    gimme gen!

    Stuck mine in the washing machine last night on a normal 40c cycle with soap flakes and no softener. Tumble dried them afterwards and they are soft and clean.

    Not sure if I have ever washed the foam applicator pads - think I did but air-dried them, didn't trust them in the tumble drier.

    Wash them on a 40c wash with normal washing powder/liquid with no softener, then put them on the line on in the airing cupboard.
