If you cleanse with a muslin cloth, how do you care for the cloths?

I like this type of cleansing but after a while the cloths become too soft and I don't feel they work as well. How should I wash them and how often? At the moment I wash them with the whites, and have a new cloth every 2/3 days, I also take my foundation off first with a baby wipe as I hate the way it stains the cloth.

Chuck them in the washing machine. Not as often as I should.

Wash but dont tumble

Oh I do tumble dry them, do you think the fabric conditioner is ruining them?

I use one a day (max 2 days) and put them in machine with whites. I don't tumble.

Cleansing with a muslin...? <intrigued>

I put them in the machine with the whites and have a new cloth every 2-3 days, like you. I don't tumble dry them or use fabric conditioner - that could be what's making them soft? Anyway, doesn't fabric conditioner leave some residue on the fabric? You don't want to be rubbing that on your face I would think...

I cut them into face cloth sized pieces and swear blind to dh that I don't know why our laundry has white fluff on it.

I wash them with towels so no fabric softener.

Wash and allow to dry naturally, no fabric softner as I don't think my face would benefit from that. And I only change them weekly with all the bedding and towels, but I think I should change the muslin more often!

Wash with towels tumble dry but don't use fabric softener as weirdly this seems to make them hard !!!

Bung them in the wash with the towels 60 degrees. Also tumble dry. I use fabric conditioner in the wash. Clean cloth every day as I have loads. Never worried about fabric conditioner before, doesn't seem to bother my skin.

Washing machine, tumble dry - I never use softener.
Iron. Fold and stack.

NotTreadingGrapes Sun 14-Apr-13 20:46:37

Wash every day, just sling them in with whatever colour wash I'm doing.

Ogooglebar Sun 14-Apr-13 20:50:44

coffee you iron them?? I'm impressed grin

coffeeinbed Sun 14-Apr-13 20:58:30

I know.
It's sad but I like the stack of them, all nicely folded and ready.
Can't help it.

Ikea white kids face cloths- pack of 7 for £2.00 are better and wash up better smile
