Sylvet

#2
The NAAFI / Spar shop on most camps. I'll expect you'll have to find a soldier to go in and buy one for you - civvy.

The SPAR at RAF Cranwell is outside the wire, are you anywhere near Lincolnshire? :roll:

A few army surplus shops I frequented as a space cadet stocked them as well.

The new sylvets are crap, they're not sewed around th edges any more and frey quite badly. Another decent cloth like the sylvet is the ones used to clean aircraft canopies, people like the AAC use them as do the RAF, getting hold of them is a little trickier.

I may actually be able to get hold of one of them. I know an aircraft mechanic (or something like that) in the RAF.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. Should I was this cloth a few times before using it, or does this only apply when using a yellow duster?
Thanks ARRSE

When I last had to break a sylvet in I started off by shaving it to try and get rid of all the fluff, I then chucked it in the washing machine. Though I always make sure it gets a good soak and scrub with shower gel and hot water every time I use it.
