    You could just use a complete old sock without cutting it into strips. Then you don't need to bother with a loom and people won't be crying about fibres getting into the ocean. Old underpants will work as well.

    Washing at 30c won't get rid of any germs though.

    Oh boy, what an invention, but many normal people re-use rags since ever, don't even need an imported name for it, and as I see it, it's not too practical, cos' when you leave the rag without weaving it, it's much easier to rinse it and dry it, then you fold it in your hand again, when using it :-D

    Why are people complaining about fibers getting into the water? Do these people never wash their clothes? Do they only buy organic cotton and bamboo fabrics? These socks have already been washed a zillion times!! What's yet another wash? At least it doesn't involve making and throwing away a cellulose sponge!

    Maybe less waste but the fibers still get into the water. So only use socks made of of cotton or other biological materials.

    No thank you. He should mentions to use only natural fibers. This is generating Microplastic!!!
