I bought these for £32 for 50. Hard to beat, just wait till you have a wet bundle and bung them in the washing machine for 20 mins and dry real quick. In fact, I think I will get another 50 before a price rise. Cheap as chips 

Good price think I might buy a couple of packs!

She told me she thought it was breaking the machine

I said that’s why my missus won’t do it....


Clothes we buy the packs from Costco find they are best value and best quality

Don't use soap in the machine as there is enough soap on them from tradding

That stops a lot of the bubbles

Same 60 degree wash no powder detailers and sills clothes together end of the week.

I use a 40 degree short wash with mop and some soap powder. Soap powder is designed to release dirt from the fabric. Never had a problem. German washing machines are the best if you need to buy one. In fact everything German seems to be the best nowadays.

Bung in bucket of clean water, wring them out then into the wash on a 30 mins cycle. Wringing them out like that gets rid of a lot of the soap in them, and only a tiny amount of powder, just in case.

i blast mine with the garden hose to take most of the dirt & soap out then quick wash in the machine.

hose with good pressure gets them clean.

Rinse cycle only, takes less than 20 minutes 

Trying the rinse now if the power trips again I’m booting it out!

Another cheap way is to put your used cloths in a bucket of water and then through a mangle if you can still get one. Probably band by the flat finger brigade.

That's like one I started off with but if you go for a separate washer and spinner you can spin one load whilst washing next ( I clean scrim first then sill cloths separate )
