wearing in scrim
Posted by samm (samm), 1 January 2004hello guys
just bought a load of new scrim, do u think I getaway with washing them 10 times to break them in, or do ya be patient and keep working them till they r ready they will be handy for someone working for me tomorrow, any tips much appreciated, coz I'm feeling lazy & hungover
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 1 January 2004Hi Samm,
I think that the only way is to put them in a boil wash and then wear them in like normal.

Posted by s.hughes (s.hughes), 1 January 2004I buy pre-washed and leave it till all my other scrim is wet and start using it then, that way it is worked in slowly
Posted by samm (samm), 1 January 2004hi guys
I have already boil washed when I first got them, but like u all know the're not too absorbant & leaves strands till after about month of use, spose its just 1 of those things we have to live with
