Quilt & Baby Items Wash Instructions
ISEWFORKIDS.COM WASHING INSTRUCTIONSThe children\'quilts and other handmade items I create are made with everyday materials whic I buy locally. However, there are some cautions for you to observe should you have a need to clean them. For your convenince I put together these short but simple tips on washing these items.
MACHINE WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHILDREN\'S QUILTS
You can machine wash just about all of the the items purchased from my web site, preferably on the delicate fabrics cycle of your machine. Feel free to use any regular strength laundry soap when you need to wash these items. NO BLEACH! I use fabrics from many suppliers which vave varying characteristics when it comes to fading so you should not use hot water. The great majority of the fabrics I use are cotton but some of the items such as rick rack, trim, lace, and other items may not withstand harsh wash soaps or high water temperatures. A well-known washing tip is to group items with similarly colored items to prevent color bleeding.
DRYER TIPS FOR QUILTSYou will find it best to dry these items on a clothes line or similar device used for drying to avoid applying excessive heat them. If you don’t have access to any of these then you should use the delicate cycle of your dryer.
IRONING QUILTS AND RUNNERS
Normally the items I create won't require any ironing. But accidents do happen around the house so in case it does you may need to wash and iron them. Light ironing with a warm (not hot) iron is suggested. This is because of the batting used in the quilted items and to protect any accessories or accents onthe items.
