Microfiber Cleaning

I am trying to see what is the best cleaner and way to clean microfiber towels in order to keep them new.

Do you guys wash your drying towels? Since they are drying a completely clean car you would think they would be clean and dirt free but I am inclined to wash them anyway to be safe.

I did when I first started, now only if they get soiled for some reason.

I must say I am exceedingly anal retentive when it comes to this. I use my drying microfibre towels once only, and wash them each time.
That said, when I sold my seven-year-old e46 M3, the paint was better than many cars on the showroom floor. No swirl marks whatsoever.
And, it paid dividends in resale value!

I wash my microfiber towels with a good helping of blue dawn dish soap. It cuts right through anything that is on the towels and leaves them residue-free.

As for the boutique microfiber brands, like "Cobra", all that I can say is overrated. I just bought a ton from Autogeek thinking that I was missing out on something. They are no better than the Costco bulk towels. The waffle weave drying towel is good though!
