All cotton fabrics from which we sew our accessories for children are of the highest quality, which means that in addition to the fact that they are actually made of 100% cotton fibers, they also have properly woven weaves.
Yes, we know that cotton fabrics are considered to be “unbreakable”, but the highest quality ones really require appropriate treatment. Thanks to this, they will fulfill their function for longer, and at the same time keep their aesthetic appearance.
Washing products made of cotton
Fabric manufacturers recommend that all products and accessories made of cotton fabrics be washed by hand at a temperature not exceeding 30ºC. They should also not be spin or bleached.
Many of the fabrics from which we make our accessories are characterised by vivid and intense colors. In order to preserve the saturation of the fabrics, we recommend the use of color protection agents.
Fabrics with a dark print – refreshing and preserving the color.
Is there any way for the fabric to retain its intense color even longer? Yes.
When it comes to dark printed fabrics, we know a fantastic way to refresh and protect the colors from losing their intensity. It is a method passed on in our family from generation to generation, so we recommend it with all my heart.
We make a solution: water + white vinegar. Then we soak dark clothes or accessories in it for about an hour, then rinse it with liquid to dark colors and dry it as usual. The effects are amazing, especially with dark fabrics and jeans.
Ideally, the entire drying process should take place outdoors in a well-ventilated area, or outdoors in the fresh air, but not in direct sunlight.
- washing at high temperatures,
- washing in a washing machine,
- intensive spinning,
- drying in a tumble dryer or in direct sunlight,
- storage in humid places.
All these activities weaken the structure of the fibers – fabrics can shrink or stretch and contribute to the loss of color – especially when drying in full sun.
Removal of minor dirt
In the case of minor dirt, it is enough to wipe the fabric with a wet tissue or cloth.
When washing, we follow the recommendations that we have on the care label sewn in. Accessories made of eco-leather or waterproof fabric are washed by hand at a temperature not exceeding 30 ° C. We do not spin, we do not bleach.
Eco-leather drying process
In the case of eco-leather, special attention should be paid to the drying process, regardless of whether it will be drying after washing or after rain or snow. Firstly. We dry it in the open air, preferably in a dry and airy room. Secondly. We do not leave wet or damp accessories in cold and humid places, as this may damage the eco-leather structure or cause fungus to it. This note also applies to waterproof fabrics.
These are all the recommendations and suggestions we have for you regarding the care and cleaning of our products. We hope that our little guide will allow you and your kids to enjoy the intense colors and sophisticated aesthetics of our accessories for even longer. 🙂
