    I have a MBP 2011 15" and it came with a cleaning cloth. I'm just curious to know if this is machine washable? Can I put it in the laundry with my clothes?

    It's microfiber and machine washable. Just don't use fabric softener with it.

    That is so true. I did that once and I ruined it.

    Said on the top.

    At first I thought you meant "can I put my MBP in the laundry" lol

    Glasses cloths from opticians works well for replacements

    Some Laundry soap has fabric softener mixed in (I think so anyway). Does that mean I should not use that too?

    Microfiber dislikes fabric softener for some reason(I once knew why, but I forgot), so I'd suggest against it.

    I hand wash my cleaning cloths with basic soap.

    No I can't recommend a brand. Although, I would say stay away from any moisturizing soap. You don't want the added lotion possibly coming in contact with your screen. I have a heck of a time cleaning my camera lenses and filters after I accidently touch them with my fingers after I have applied stuff to my hands (sunscreen, lotion, etc).

    I use one of those lint-free cloths which came with my old glasses instead :p
