#83820 - 02/17/06 07:21 PM washing reptarium in hot water...

when I machine wash the screen of the reptarium, I usually do it in cold, but this time i was a little distracted and forgot... so it was washed in hot water. It seems okay, but the texture is different. It's sort of softer. does anyone regularly wash in hot water, and have you ever had any problems because of it?
just wondering if i should be more aware of holes and such.

uh oh... on closer inspection it seems to have shrunk a bit... maybe i'm making that up. yes, i hope i'm making that up... :o uh oh...

No, I'm afraid it does change the texture and it will shrink; however, it can be stretched to fit the frame again. The 1st set I got I did the same thing. It'll be o.k.

[:"blue"] I wash mine in warm all the time and then air dry. In fact, you can put them back on the frame damp to dry if you have a travel cage for the gliders. It doesn't take long at all for it to dry even in the winter. [/]
