Flax consists of fiber bundles, where the individual fibers look like small tubes. Hemp absorbs water to almost 60% of its weight and swells by about 30%. During the swelling, these cavities increase. Solid materials from the detergent can now be rinsed into these. When the hemp then dries and the fibers thereby shrink, and the solid material is locked in. Through each wash, new particles enter the fibers. As it dries, the fibers shrink and the voids narrow again. As the trapped particles do not shrink, they burst the pipes. The fabric then becomes brittle and eventually dissolves.
