We recommend hand washing and washing colours separately to avoid colour bleed and fade add a few table spoons of vinegar or salt to the wash per Truban. Salt and vinegar you say !
Yes, they act as softening agents and will increase fabric longevity. Don’t worry, there will be no unpleasant odour after washing.
For machine wash we recommend a delicate cycle using non bio detergent.
We recommend air drying, avoiding the sun to prevent colour fade.
Once dried, gently stretch the fabric to loose fabric fibers, this helps it become easier to tie and style
