What's the best way to wash Microfiber and Cotton towels and pads caked with polish and wax residue?

Toss them in the washer with Tide?

You dont want to use anything that contains bleaches or fabric softeners when cleaning your microfiber products. I suggest (and use myself) microrestore. Then just toss them in the dryer :)

As for foam pads on your pc. After youre done using them, I spray them down w/ poorboys apc, let it soak a little, then blast w/ the hose. Repeat once or so, blot dry then allow to air dry :)

So using the method Chris layed out above, how many times do you wash them before the cutting pads soften up or finishing pads become more coarse?

I've been using this method for a while and my towels still feel great and I dont toss my pads too often. I know thats a vague answer, but it's really going to depend how many times you're using the pads/towels. Using proper cleaning will definitely prolong the life of your products over improper cleaning :)
