Tumble dry it?

I recently bought one from JL that needed 2 washes and tumble dries before it was usable.

Once it stos raining stick it out on the washing line to have a good blow around in the wind.

Stos = stops

Ooh...try washing it with no fabric conditioner but wash with non-bio. Then tumble dry, with those funny plastic tumble drier balls you can buy as they'll bad the fabric about a bit.

Tumble dry it and then iron it. It will get less stiff the more you use it.

Leave it out in the rain for a bit.
