I usually wash all the woolies/delicates in Persil Silk & Wool liquid. However this jumper found it's way into the normal wash which is done with Persil non-bio & Comfort Pure fabric conditioner. The jumper has been 'crunchy', cardboardy and stiff ever since. I've tried rinsing it again and rewashing it 3 times in Persil Silk & Wool, no joy. Am I going to have to chuck it out or can I rescue it ?
TIA for any replies, I'm fully aware of sheer dullness of the subject. Perhaps I should've given it a racier title ?
I hesitate to say dry it in the tumble drier because it may well shrink but it always produces really soft clothes for us - regardless of whether or not I use fabric conditioner. Maybe just give it a short whirl on the lowest setting...
Personally I'd tumble dry it on a cool setting for 10 minutes. On my tumber drier the last 10 minutes are with no heat and this softens clothes up nicely. It's the tumbling rather than the drying that does it. I think.
