Tumble Drying can be used BUT we recommend line drying, why?We often get questions about our washing labels stating ‘Do not tumble dry’. This is a recommendation by us not because your items will be damaged by tumble drying. We have this on our labels because often when tumbled dried, they can attract lint from the dryer as well as being charged once out which can affect the performance.Tumble drying will not damage your items, certainly use it where needed, but when weather permits, line drying is better.WHY, you might ask?The benefits of microfiber is its ability to attract liquids, dirt, grime, spit up and so on. This is usually a benefit but, often when tumble dried, your dryer contains material fluff known as lint. When you add the cloths into the dryer they will attract the lint and you will end up with lint covered cloths.Of course we know how busy Mom’s & Dad’s are and the last thing you want to be doing is removing pilling on top of all the other responsiblities and chores you have to complete.SO… we simply recommend that you line dry these items where possible.Â What do I do if I used fabric softener on the cloths?What’s great about microfiber is that its intricate fibers have the ability to trap dust and absorb spills. However, if you toss it in the wash with fabric softener, you could end up destroying the effectiveness and durability of its fibers.OH NO… I forgot and used fabric softener!! Help…All is not lost, don’t worry.1. Dip the cloths in boiling water, do not leave in for more then 2 minutes. The boiling will soften the fibres and remove any residue from the fabric softener.Â 2. Add cloths to a separate container of clean water and white vinegar. Allow them to soak for at least 1 hour and then put them through a wash cycle without fabric softener.3. Allow them to line dry and your cloths should be back to their original wonderful selves!4. If you find that this is not the case, repeat steps 1 to 3.Versatility Galore!!Our customers often tell us how versatile these cloths can be…Â Examples for alternative uses are listed below: used for the elderly, disabled or less mobile individuals to assist in care use the cloth as a bib, when you forget to pack one they are large enough to be used as a blanket when travelling with a toddler or during sudden changes in the weather. they can be wet and drapped around an adults neck to help keep cool on hot days. finally, you can use them as a towel to dry your baby/toddler when you do not have a towel handy, are travelling and the towels are too scratchy or simply because your go-to towel did not dry in time. dribble cloth for prams and baby carriers. sports towel for children at the school age. gym towel for children who are into exercising/working out. a cape when playing dress ups!I am positive there are more uses but these are just a few that other customers have told us about!
