I know of no method to chemically remove the fiberglass without harming the clothing. Depending on the amount of fiberglass in the fabric, it could be brushed out with a boars hairbrush, or removed using tape or other sticky material applied to the surface of the clothing. Repeated washing and drying could be an effective solution, but only if there is a minimal amount of fiberglass in the clothing
Rewash is linen that must be washed again prior to its use. There are generally two categories of rewash. The first is linen with unacceptable quality, other than stains. This linen is in good shapebut might be misfolded, wrinkled, have dust or lint on it, or for some other reason should not be used. The second type of rewash is linen that is stained due to usage.
The summer months offer relief from the monster called static electricity. But the coming of winter will bring the “shocking” return of static to our laundries. If we understand the cause and some possible solutions, a laundry operation can eliminate most, if not all, the sparks that fly with linen static.
