Once you receive your smocked items, we recommend that you pretreat the fabric and threads by soaking them in a mixture of 75% vinegar and 25% water to set the colors for at least 4 hours. Red and brown thread can bleed easily. It is also recommended that you use color catcher sheets in your wash (these can be found in the laundry aisle). The vinegar mixture can be reused.
Gentle Cylce/Cold Wash with mild detergent or hand wash. Do not bleach. Hang or lay flat to dry. Steam is preferred over ironing.
