    Right I have a really nice hoody that I don't want to wreck. By wreck I mean I don't want the material to have those little bobbly things all over it.

    So any idea of how I can make sure it doesn't happen?

    Wash it at a lower temp ie 40 or even 30
    And don't wash it to much, only when you really need to, just hang it out to blow through and freshen up unless it's actually dirty.

    Nope isn't dirty.

    Also I've done that with my other hoodies and still get the bobbles :(

    Don't know if I should use the fabric conditioner stuff.

    You could try washing it inside an old pillow case, like you do with delicate items

    Thanks for the tips shall try them out, I'll also be washing it inside out, as it has some writing on the front, that'll peel off if not washed inside out.

    It's a £50 hoody, but was on sale for £25 so a bargain but I really don't want to ruin it lol.

    It wont matter how you wash it, it will eventually get some bobbles on it from where you rub your arms over the fabric etc, you can buy a really good gadget now in Wilkinsons, which remove ALL BOBBLES and your hoody will look like new again, I got one a while ago and now is lost, so will have to go buy another, brillaint they are.

    I'm bad and handwash lots of things like this. I have knee length jumpers with ladders and was worried they'd get bobble so I handwash them :blushing:
