Dry Microfiber Cleaning Products
Microfiber is a delicate material and while it’s safe for your washer, exposing it to the extreme heat of the dryer will destroy the fibers. Instead, after machine or hand washing your microfiber heads, wring out excess moisture, toss them into your spinner, and give it a few good pumps to draw out the excess water before laying them out to dry.
Spin Dry Delicates
For delicates like bras and tights, toss them into your spinner and let centrifugal forces work their magic.
