How to Make Your Sherpa or Fleece Soft Again
For Christmas, my mother-in-law gave me a Sherpa hoodie. I love it; it's so warm you feel like a chicken that's roasting. You feel like someone is giving you a big, soft hug. You feel like your skin has been turned inside out and bathed in warm butter.
But, after a few washes, it didn't feel like that anymore. I was so sad because it was so wonderfully soft! So, I took to the internets to find out how to get my Sherpa and fleeces fix again.
- First off - quit washing your hoodies. Unless your kid vomits spaghetti on you, spot clean that sucker.
- When you do HAVE to wash it, quick gentle cycle it in cold water and don't use fabric softener.
- Air dry your Sherpa or Fleece.
- When it's done, use a bristle brush and gently comb it out in all directions.
Here's the one I purchased for my Sherpa. Now, I use it on my own hair too!
