How Do I Wash My 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. 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 out to dry so that the dogs can’t get to them.

These rags are good for doors, counters, mirrors, 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 these rags. Head on over to the FlyShop and get yours today!
