    Question Trouble Getting Fleece to Wick

    Hello! I have two anti-pill fleeces and one blizzard fleece that I have washed at least 4 times each and they still aren't wicking properly. I don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets. What could I be doing wrong?

    Are you using hot water? Strong detergent?

    I am using warm water, and it’s just generic Walmart brand non scented detergent? Is that not strong enough? Should I be using hot water?

    Fleece is nearly indestructible, and neither hot water, strong detergent or bleach will do anything to it.

    I soaked my fleece liners in diluted vinegar for about an hour (I put them in a bathtub, ran warm water, and dumped vinegar in), which did the trick for me.
