I got a new Sonus waffle weave drying towel a month or so back. Care label says 'No Softener' and 'Tumble Dry at 90c' if I'm reading the label pictures correctly?
I know that when I first used the towel from new (so not washed first by me) it was amazing, it just sucked the water up straight away. Now, after washing as per instructions, it takes a good bit of going around the car before the towel starts to absorb water as well as it did when new. It seems to like being a little damp first before it does a good job.
Is this how they are or should I be doing something else with it? Maybe wash and air dry or something?
