I know I have read about washing Tyvek on the forum before but cannot find it. I am going to use a sheet of it for a ground cloth and think I remember hearing if you wash it, it will soften it up and make it a little less "loud".

Is this true?

If so, can anyone give me washing instructions? Cold water? With soap? Tumble dry?

I feel like these are dumb questions...but oh well!

Thanks

when I've washed Tyvek I just put it in the machine and wash normal cycle, no detergent, hang to air dry. Sometimes it takes a couple of cycles and this is one time when top loading machines works better than front loaders.
