Wash Mitt Care???

Hi All

I've just bought a new Dodo wash mitt which is HUGE!!!

Keen to get cracking with it, but do I need to wash it or anything first?

Also, once I've washed the car, can I just rinse it under running water to clean it? Used to stick mitts in the washing machine, but they lose their softness quite quickly.

Generally, natural wool mitts should NEVER be tumble dried and I'd be wary about machine washing them. The drying process is perhaps more important though, cuff open, left to dry gradually ie not on a blazing hot radiator where they can become crispy!
