Proper care is essential for a long life for your quilt.
-Wash in cold water using a mild detergent or soap. Run the machine on a short cycle.
– Add 1/2 cup (125 ml) of white vinegar to the wash cycle to keep colours bright. – Add 3 or 4 “Color Catcher” sheets to the wash. As a bonus, we give you a starter box with your purchase.
– The best way to dry is hang to dry in the outdoors. Sun freshens a quilt as nothing else can.
– NEVER press a quilt with an iron.
– Launder once a year only.
Storage: When not in use, store on a hanger in a closet that is not crowded, or in a cedar chest or a box, but never in plastic. Never fold a quilt the same way day after day. Refold it differently twice a month. This will ensure fewer creases and a perfect shape.
When you remove it from Storage, lay it outside and let the sun penetrate it or tumble it in a cool dryer for a short time.
These simple measures will ensure you enjoy your quilt for many years.
