My DH remembered the GOOP part from a few days ago & I told him what you all said about SMO. Now he has his answer as to why not. Glad to hear about switching cotton often. Now I know why we name them after women -- they're delicate.
Also, thanks Miriam for the links to the cleaning -- some days I'm computer challenged!! Still haven't figured my way around the board or how to leave an answer to others messages.
