Washing Purple Rags

 

Dear FlyLady,

Please don’t buy a more pale color for the rags-in-a-bag as the purple doesn’t show dirt stains. I was amazed at how clean my outdoor glass-top table got with just one pass of the rag. The next pass made it sparkle. The next day I ate lunch on it-great weather and I escaped hearing the World Cup match. I never would have considered eating outside previously.

I do have a question. What kind of load should we throw the purple rags into?

Dear Elinor,

I did the same thing today. I cleaned my outside glass top table that was covered in muck, pollen and dirt. In the past I have had to use Windex and lots of paper towels. I could not believe how fast my table was shining!

Do not wash purple rags with anything other than Purple Rags. Fibers from other cloths can ruin the texture of the purple rag. One small load will take care of the washing when you need to if you want to use the washing machine for the rags. I use very little soap and a bucket with warm water to wash them.

Do not use any fabric softener on them. Then I hang mine up to air dry.

These rags are good for doors, counters, mirrors, windows, and the latest use is in the shower. You can use them on your body to exfoliate or on your shower doors to get rid of soap scum. We love our purple rags.
