Re: Microfiber inserts no longer absorbing?
This has been my experience thus far. I bought some new ones thinking the old ones surely needed replacing...instead the weren't as absorbant and I got compression leaks...but I am still a newbie.

I always dry my mf on super hot.
I think you might try washing them with a different detergent too. Think of how great your hair feels when you switch shampoos. Some detergents don't attack every kind of soil there is out there. Don't give up on your Mf!
