My Laundry Question

How do I reduce the amount of pill coming from the fleece on the inside of

wincheater and jacket.

Share a Little Background Info

Wincheater/ Jumper and Jacket from school uniform shop are brand new.

Fleece is rubbing onto other clothes. The fabric is fleece on the inside and smooth cotton on the outside.

The school tshirt is white and the the blue fleece/pill is rubbing onto the tshirt (making it covered in blue fibres) Is there something I can add to the wash for the first couple of washes of the jacket.?

Lessons Learned

  • Have though about washing in hot water and using dryer to lessen the pill
  • Just wondering of eucalyptus or epsom salts would bind the fabric a bit better
  • to stop the fleece fibres rubbing onto other fabric
