    I usually wash them. Depending on their condition I might use them again on the engine bay, windows, and painted wheels
    If they're dirty as "soiled" then you can use them on the engine bay, and things like that. If they're dirty as "with wax" I'd wash them inspect them, and keep using them with that same wax if they don't have foreign debris that can scratch the paint. If you wash your car right, then the applicators shouldn't be soiled after you're done waxing...

    Another thing I do is put my applicators in a baggie if they're still clean and only wax on it

    I use 1 towel for wax and different towel if I use another application. I don't throw it away. Washing keeps your budget safe.

    I usually just toss em. At less than a dollar a piece, I'd rather just use new fwiw though, I've washed them w/ microrestore and they do just fine.

    I wash them until they look worn out. I wash my microfiber cloths and sometimes terry towels too.
