For Organic Cotton
Organic baby clothes is beneficial for a number of reasons. Garments made from organic cotton are soft, hypoallergenic and free of any nasty chemicals. So when it comes to cleaning these garments, it’s easy to feel apprehensive about damaging the soft fibres.
Conventional textiles are treated with chemicals to prevent shrinkage. As our organic baby clothes are chemical-free, we’d suggest washing on a low heat to keep the shape. A 40°C cycle will remove stains and also save energy, which is good for the environment.
Avoid powerful washing machine detergents, as they are packed with harmful chemicals. Not only are these bad for your little ones; they’ll also degrade the fibres and dyes in your organic baby clothes. Opt for a mild, eco-friendly washing detergent. If you previously used a non-eco detergent, put your empty washing machine through a rinse cycle before washing organic garments.
Drying organic baby clothes at a high temperature will also lead to shrinkage, so air dry where possible. If you’re in a rush, run your tumble dryer on an air cycle which uses no heat.
Organic Cotton fabric are relatively easy to care for and maintain as long as you are mindful. Rest assured mommies because you have chosen the best fabric in the world to protect and be a part of you babies' daily milestone.
Care Guide for Bamboo is very similar to Organic Cotton. Best to avoid hard washing and high heat.

Tencel is resistant to wrinkles; if any wrinkles appear, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish.
To iron, hover over the item using the steam setting, or press using a warm setting.
To freshen between launderings, spritz with Delicate Spray.
Knit items should be stored folded to prevent stretching or distorting. Woven items such as pants can be hung.
Always store items clean.
We recommend storing in a breathable cotton storage bag to protect items from bugs.
Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
