qustion on cleaning microfibre wash mitt

i've started using optimum no rinse car wash with a new microfiber wash mitt. i'm getting a much better clean out of the optimum, but after i'm done the mitt gets really black and dosen't rinse with just water. i would have to either hand wash it in detergent or use simple green to get worst of the black stuff out.

is this normal?

The best way to clean microfiber towels, mits or anything thats microfiber is to throw them in the washing machine with your ordinary towels and throw in a special microfiber detergent like Micro-Restore Microfiber Detergent or DP Microfiber Cleaner and their both safe for your ordinary towels also.

I used a cleaning detergent that I found in the laundry room and it got the majority of the stains out. I then washed it in my Micro-Restore MF Detergent. Now my Canadian Tire mitt is almost as soft as my wax removing microfiber haha
