How to keep your HankyBook spiffy clean
We see that your hunt for the best and most convenient reusable tissue alternative has led you to the HankyBook. Here are some basic best care practices for taking care of your HankyBook. Now 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 truly tip-top shape then here are three main Care Tips for a long-lasting HankyBook.
Tip #1 – Air it out
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.
Tip #2 – 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. If you’re more of a sloppy and forgetful owner, like me, don’t worry. The wash will take care of most of this “naturally” during the cycle.
Tip #3 – 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. 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).
