Taking care of your instrument

Hi everybody! This is my first post - I have a question about my Muramatsu cleaning cloth. It is a maroon-ish red and is used for the outside of my flute. I was wondering how/how often I am supposed to clean it. Thanks!
I've just thrown them in the wash as needed, you know, when the dirt starts to accumulate. I still have microfiber cloths (called ranger rags in the Army) that are still effective after 20 years of use. Here is a reference: http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Microfiber
I have a Muramatsu and mine came with a yellow microfiber cleaning cloth. After 18 years, mine is only showing a little bit of discoloration in a few spots. Unless you make a habit of playing your flute without washing your hands after you change the oil on your car, it probably won't get very dirty...

Thanks for the answers! This was really helpful
