After using the chamois, rinse it well with warm water and lather it with a bar of soap. Rinse the soap and dirt from the chamois under warm water and lather the soap in again. Without rinsing in clean water, squeeze dry and leave the skin to dry naturally, away from direct heat. Leaving the soap in the skin helps keep it supple and soft. The next time you need to use the chamois, rinse in warm water, squeeze dry, and it’s ready for use.
