Welcome! We’re so pleased you’re here!
We see that your hunt for the best and most convenient reusable products has led you to the HankyBook, here are some basic tips for taking care of yours so that you can get as much out of it as we do and help it last a long time.
HankyBooks do not require any special care. You just throw them in the wash with your laundry and on to the dryer (or handwash and air-dry – however you like) just like you would with any piece of clothing. No special tricks needed but if you want to keep your HankyBook in tip top shape then here are 3 main Care Tips for a long lasting HankyBook.
1. Air It Out
BIG TIP! Help your HankyBook dry quickly, not get compacted, and stay tidy by shaking it out. To do this after each use hold it by the sewn edge and snap your wrist a few times to align the pages.
2. Wash It Regularly
It is a good idea to wash your HankyBooks regularly. When they’re used and then left out for a long period of time, dirt tends to settle in and get its own furniture – maybe even start inviting some of its friends over. You don’t want that.
Just keep it simple. If you don’t use your HankyBook that much, throw it in your laundry whenever your laundry cycle would call for you to wash your clothes anyway – it’ll keep it nice and clean, and the fabric actually gets softer as you wash it. If you do use it a lot – well, simple enough, wash it frequently (but try to wash it with full loads of laundry to conserve water and energy).
3. Pull Pages Apart Before Washing
For the best cleaning results, take a second or two to pull the pages apart just before washing – whatever works to keep the HankyBook pages from sticking together awkwardly. If you’re more of the sloppy and forgetful owner, like me, don’t worry. The wash will take care of most of this “naturally”.
