How should I maintain my baker’s couche ?

This fabric is designed for bakery professionals. Washing the proofing cloth with water is not recommended. Dry brushing will be sufficient to remove any flour or dough deposits. To make the best use of your time, when using this proofing cloth, we advise drying the cloth after use. This will also avoid mould formation (We don't sell cloth dryers).
