    Careless Tough fleece wont wick!

    I've recently purchased some new fleece from the thrift store for the boys, I purchased 4- 3 out of them worked out and are wicking perfectly fine (even this one really thick fleece Winnie the Pooh blanket I got) but this one blanket just isn't working! I've washed it 6 times, with softener free soap, vinegar on warm-cold cycle (I'm not new to the whole fleece prep), I'm really perplexed!
    I'm thinking it might be that one kind of fleece were supposed to avoid.
    Does anyone have any last tips for me to try? I'm about to just give up and cut it up to make cuddle cups or something.

    Try it with strong detergent, very hot water, and bleach. There's no point trying to be gentle with bleach. It's made of recycled soda pop bottles, and is nearly indestructible.

    Sure, I'll give that a try, I might as well!
    Is one wash with the bleach sufficient?

    Dunno. You'll have to test it after you wash it. Sometimes it is, sometimes not.
