  • kamikaze overcoat and MF

    hello
    I have been using kamikaze overcoat during my drying process and it seems to have effected the absorption of my drying towels over time. Would one assume that I have left the drying towels too long before washing them? Is there anyways to bring them back to life again?

    thank you in advance

    Try a soak in a dedicated cleaner and some 50 degree water.
    Bowdens own does a great product.

    Try a second wash with a vinegar rinse if that doesn't help.

    I have found this with overcoat and some other similar products if you don't throw the towel straight in soapy water.
    Keep a bucket full in the shed.

      thank for the reply, have been guilty with leaving them a lot longer than I really should have without washing them. Ill try the Bowden soak and vinegar trick and let you know how I go. thank again

        Trewarin is on the money with that response - I do the same thing and have not yet had issues with towels losing their abilities.

          I've been told by some pros that they use boiling water from a kettle into a bucket with detergent to revive MFs that have been waterproofed by sealant wipedowns
          If it beads...

          we can clean it.

            would the temp of the boiling water damage the fibres by any chance.

              Yep.
              It would close the weave, decreasing absorbency and anti static properties.
