Hygienic: Use by handkerchief (no snot in the pockets!). We blow our nose and we have the dirty handkerchief in the basket (available in the Bateau Bateau sets) until the next wash.
Super sweet: A luxury handkerchief compared to paper handkerchiefs! And compared to many other tissues, because bamboo is much softer and softer than woven cotton and flannel.
Organic and ecological: Natural, unbleached and dye-free. Made from a renewable source of fibre: bamboo, with organic cotton. All certified OEKO-TEX and CPSIA and manufactured in an eco-responsible factory without chemical agents. Cutting is done locally in Quebec.
Look like disposable handkerchiefs
Add to a load of white.
If necessary, you can rinse them first or cycle quickly to dilute the mucus. Water at 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit) will kill germs and microbes.
Blood can stain the fabric: rinse your tissues with cold water before washing them in hot water.
Machine dry to keep them fluffy or suspended to dry. As the washes go, the tissues may deform and the sides will wear out slightly; That’s normal. They will also gain absorption. They are not supposed to fray. If you see wires, cut them off and continue to use them normally.
Don’t use softeners: the fiber is soft naturally! And the absorption of the handkerchiefs could be compromised.
Do not use bleach.
We love it! Very durable, zero waste, made in Quebec, handmade, organic fabrics.
