One word - cornstarch. From what I've read and heard, the material they are made of , 'superskin'. has a tendency to become tacky and stick to itself after it has been washed, moreso over time. I'm sure there are all kinds of commercial 'renewing powders' on the market, but unless you want to pay *premium* price for cornstarch, your local grocer is closer and cheaper. Do NOT use baby powder or talcum powder, because they *will* damage your product. See this page for info - link

Talc has also been linked to some forms of cancer.

Better to just use some cornstarch, cheaper and easier to get.

I agree; use ONLY cornstarch!! Make sure the sleeve is completely dry (inside and outside) before applying the cornstarch!

I use cornstarch on mine but not every time we use them. Haven't had any problems with them getting too sticky yet.

Technically, talc itself has not been linked to cancer. It is actually asbestos contamination of talc that is the problem. In a limited study, US manufacturers if talc were clean of asbestos. However, it can be difficult to know the source of talc in a product.

Regardless, I agree that simple cornstarch is cheaper.

I had no idea that it was cornstarch, I have some and never knew you could use it for that.
