While at a local store, I saw a relatively large piece of chamois for sale -- intended for use on cars. The packaging said that it was treated with something (and dang if I can remember what it was! Some kind of oil.) so although I was tempted to buy it, I didn't because I wasn't sure if the oil used to treat the chamois would affect the clay. Then again, I'm not even sure if the chamois that I buy specifically for my clay is treated with the same kind of oil!
Has anyone else tried this?? Any thoughts on it? Also, regarding chamois, is it okay to run it through the washing machine before I start using it on clay? Or is that not recommended?
