What do you guys wash you bonnets in? Lately I've been bringing mine to the laundry mat and washing them in old Encap products that I have. I figure most laundry detergent doesn't get rinsed out, so I'll be better off using an Encapsulation?

Laundry detergent works fine.

I first run just a cycle to rinse them then the next cycle add a scoop of prespray and wash them again. Sometimes I will add some clorox to the load

Why not spray with Encap and Vacuum!

For washing delicate rugs I will use a Bonnet. I do wash Bonnets in a front loader with minimal Tide and some Laundry Bleach.

I wash my bonnets with some powdered prespray I won in a MB auction. I got a 50 lb box of this stuff. I forget who makes it, something like Steamway. It's way too clumpy to use in my sprayer and doesn't dissolve well at all, so now it’s my pad cleaning soap. Seems to do okay at that. I think the company should rethink it's branding.

I own a laundromat and if you take bonnets to one try to find a older laundromat with older front load equipment.
The older equipment has a prewash, wash and 3 rinses versus the newer energy efficient water saving equipment.

I do just that. I mainly wash my dust mops that way. Of course I vacuum them first. I’ll throw bonnets in with them if I’ve used them. I don’t use them much.

You’re saying you have to rinse a bonnet that can clean carpet without rinsing it?
