I've washed it all again and it's made not a jot of difference, any ideas please ?

leave till dry and brush off - no other way I'm afraid

nightmare with cords

Tumble dry the whole wash. Works best if you put a couple of bounce sheets in too, to take out the static. All the tissue fragments will end up in the filter. Just keep cleaning the filter and re-tumbling to whole lot is clear.

Actually, if there is a breeze outside where you are, I would hang it out first, then tumble dry on low temperature.

agree re tumble drying, if you have a dryer that is!

I'm always doing this.

It's always dh who leaves tissues in pocket.Really pisses me off,so I do nothing and leave lovely black clothes with a fine dusting of kleenex mist all over them in his wardrobe.

I have also decided life is too short to bother about socks and clothes that are inside out.I pair up socks inside out,fold tops inside out and laugh heartily at my ingenious space saving sluttish ways.

Glad I got that off my chest.

i font the answer is to only ever use ultra balm tissued

i regulary wash these (by mistake) sometimes at 60 and they never discintigarte in the wash.

(someitmes i think i could actually dry and re-use them.... but i dont!)

I second the tumble drier approach. Gets blooming everywhere though.
