It’s very easy, just throw them in the washing machine, right? It’s very simple to do that. But, the fact is it’s not the right way to wash your super absorbent beach towel.

Of course, a microfiber beach towel is designed to be super absorbent and soft on the skin. But, they are no longer the same when they have hundreds of grains of sand all over them.

Proper cleaning and washing is crucial to prolong the lifespan of the microfiber towels and ensure the softness of the towel.
