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.
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...
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!
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.
