Are my towels ruined?

Recommended Posts

My wife wanted her car washed while I was doing mine with ONR. She came out to help me and instead of spraying OID on her ride before she dried it she sprayed tire shine. By the time I noticed, my brand new WWMF was almost completely black. Can it be washed or should I throw it away? Thanks.

I love my wife but one time we bought a new mower and she filled the crankcase with gasoline because it had two caps on top of the engine. She was just trying to help, so don't be too hard on her, LOL!

I would be lying if I said I didn't flip out initially, but we laughed it off together. Just to make sure, I have since washed the towel in question, and the stains are still there. So are the ones from times that I missed a spot with ONR. I am assuming it is still safe to use. Thanks in advance with such a silly question.

Yeah just the fibers may be "stained" but the towel itself will still work as designed.

 

The best way to ruin a towel is by dropping it or having the wind blow it off a car and into a pile off Oak tree pollen crap!! That stuff just entangles inside the MF towels and won't come out so you have to trash the towel :beerchug[1]:

Pollen has the potential to be abrasive so during these pollen days here in South Texas I like to 1) use the traditional washing method or 2) if using No Rinse I will use a wetter ONR wash mitt and/or use the OID as a presoak.

 

If you happen to get crap in your towels, no not the literal type as that would warrant a quick and hasty disposal, but rather pollen and shrub type crap it's best to try and brush and vacuum the stuff out.

 

Adios,

Anthony
