Has anyone with the kam snaps have experience using the tiny #16 size and had them wash ok? I don't want them coming apart especially for baby items

I haven't had a chance to use the #16 snaps yet but was planning on it for one of my next projects. I read on the kam snaps site the size 14 and 16 can only be washed in cold water.

We have washed Avery's bibs in warm water, not sure about hot, but maybe her white ones, and they did fine. Dried them too, but I would be more concerned with the dryer than the hot water....just my experience and opinion. We love them thanks to Bevintex for convincing me to try them.

I love them too, I have just not tried the size 16 on anything that needs a wash as I am worried they will fall apart after reading what was on the kam snaps website

Ich habe Puppenkleider genäht, die sehr oft gewaschen wurden und ab und zu in der 60-Grad-Wäsche gelandet sind. Die Kam Snaps haben es gut überlebt. Beim Einsetzen der Knöpfe habe ich den Stoff von der linken Seite verstärkt und dann mit dem Dorn vorgebohrt, damit sie mehr Halt haben. Klappt prima

Danke, das ist hilfreich. Ich habe nicht an Puppen Kleidung gedacht, sie würden dafür perfekt sein

Wow, cold water only? I did not know that...I may have to rethink using them for some projects...

I only found out after receiving a bagful in almost every colour. Now I am wondering what I will use them on as I prefer to make sure most things are able to be used in the washer and dryer if necessary.

I have used them not washed, they have a very short shank, so only use on thin fabric..wendy
