Includes a pretty fabric box for storing tissues and a matching, reversible basket for disposing of used tissues until the next wash.
Use, dispose, wash, reuse:
Blow your nose, put your tissue in the basket and when the basket is full, drop the tissues in the washer without touching them. Wash and dry in the machine. Put the clean tissues back in the box and reuse over and over again.
The basket may not seem like much, but it's necessary to structure the concept and prevent tissues from ending up in the trash, getting lost or lying around. It is placed next to the box to obtain a practical, easy to use and hygienic routine
Why choose Bateau Bateau handkerchiefs?
If you like :
- Soft, fluffy and comfortable things.
- The idea of a "single use" handkerchief that looks like a disposable instead of a large grandpa-like handkerchief.
- Easy care that can be put in the dryer.
- When your handkerchief is thick enough not to get your fingers wet.
- You sponge the inside of the nostril effectively.
- Be comforted when you have a cold.
They go in the washer and dryer.
Handkerchiefs may shrink a bit and warp over time. They are not meant to fray. If you see any threads, cut them off and continue to use them normally. If you see that your tissues are unnaturally frayed, contact us. Top-loading, non-pivot HE washers are more prone to fraying our tissues. If you have this type of washer, it is recommended that you choose white tissues and/or wash them on a delicate cycle.
Avoid using bleach, as chlorine can weaken natural fibers and damage or yellow the fabric over time.
Avoid using fabric softener, as it may waterproof the fibers and your tissues will become less absorbent over time.
If necessary, you can rinse/soak the tissues first or do a quick cycle with warm water to dilute the mucus.
Add tissues to a regular load (clothes, washcloths, towels...) preferably in cold water (for the environment).
CAUTION: Blood can stain white fabrics. Rinse with cold water before disposing of or washing in hot water.
CAUTION: Do not overload your washer. Tissues need room to expand and for water and soap to penetrate the fabric.
Drying: Tumble dry to keep them soft or hang to dry.
