We's surprised, oomans. Doesn't your valet clean every case with kid leather gloves and a chamois leather?

Whilst out here in Albuquerque, I've run four full loads through my Frankford steel pin tumbler & despite the insanely hard water here, all have come out spotless. I use 60ml of Dawn dish soap & a half teaspoon of Lemishine in my cleaning mix.
When emptied out of the drum, they get a couple of good rinses in clean water, followed by a good shake in an old towel, then laid out on another towel in the sun on the concrete drive & are dry inside & out within a couple of hours, helped no doubt by the low humidity here.
Back in the UK, instead of putting them out to dry, they go inside two old pillowcases(one inside the other) with the opening closed with velcro & into the tumble drier - noisy but efficient (another advantage of being single...).
