As was mentioned previously, make sure, when you dry them, that you do NOT do it on high heat or use any fabric softener whatsoever.

Also, a few other thoughts:

Try not to use powder wash soap. Use liquid only, and make sure that you throw them through an extra rinse cycle to get all the soap off.

The fabric softeners remove absorbability, which is a new word I decided to make up.

next time use less wax.

i would shake the towel outside violently to get most of the wax dust out.
then wash with detergent in your washing machine. if that's a MF towel,
don't wash it with your other cotton towels as you will get lint.

air dry is best. tumble dry low if you must, but make sure no lint is in the
dryer from previous laundry.

www.griotsgarage.com sells MF towel and pad cleaner which you can
add in your wash cycle.

The washing machine works just fine. Here are some tips:

1) Use warm water and double rinse to be sure all the detergent is out
2) Dry on delicate or low heat and do not use fabric softeners.
