Can you bleach fleece?
I can't find anything on this using search.. Google gave me an obsolete answer on this forum.. =(
I'm making removable covers for pillows to be used in pet containers at our local Humane Society. I've made three today but started thinking about being told they wash and bleach their covers daily (they had just been washing the whole pad which was wearing out washing machines quickly). They would also be drying them instead of hanging them to dry (what I read you should do while searching this question).
From what I've been able to find out on-line, bleach should NOT be used (unless labeled clothing says it's okay) and cool dryers used rather then hot. Cool or warm water was also advised in the washer. I also read washing often will cause the material to pill. There was no label with this material stating if it was non-pilling material.
I want to call the animal shelter tomorrow and advise the lady I'm working with about this information to make sure this is what they want me to use before making more.
Does anyone know of any way this can be used? Would washing daily in warm water still be detrimental to the pad covers even if bleach wasn't used?
I got the impression that bleaching all materials that come in contact with animals was a must..
Any suggestions as to what would be good to use for this project?
