    how do you prepair your scrim for duty.

    i have just got a grade A and i have been advised to boil the scrim for 10 min with a dash of vinagar then cool off and again same steps.

    Use mine as seal cloths for a week then wash em on a boil wash. Seals again then boil wash then ok. Don't know about the vinegar.

    I personally don't tumble dry mine. Find they go all fluffy.

    I done what masons suggested, used it as a sill cloth and wash them, that prepares them well

    Buy pre washed ones lol .

    But i find even those are not as good as bedded in ones .
    Just use them as general sill cloth's and seal cloth's for a few days then wack em in the washer .
