Can I wash microfiber in the washing machine?
Wash your microfiber in the washing machine with detergent only. Tumble them dry on low heat or no heat. High heat will literally melt the fibers while fabric softener and bleach will eliminate the electric charge that makes microfiber so effective.
What temperature should you wash microfiber sheets?
After the wash cycle is complete, general guidelines recommend that microfiber is dried at a low temperature — between 130 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Microfiber, compared to cotton, will dry in 40 to 60 percent less time, and temperatures any higher can harm the product.
How do you wash a microfiber sheet for the first time?

How do you whiten microfiber sheets?
Instead, use gentler, greener alternatives to whiten microfiber.
- Pour undiluted white vinegar into a spray bottle and spray stained areas before laundering.
- Fill a top-loading washing machine with enough warm water for the microfiber sheets to move freely.
