Caring for Your High-Quality Baby Bedding
When you receive your baby bedding, we recommend using a light steamer or steam iron to get the wrinkles out. They will look better with a little bit of touch up after shipping!
We recommend that our all-cotton bedding, including rail covers and blankets, be washed separately or in a machine using the delicate cycle, cold water, and mild detergent or Woolite. Our quality linen fabrics can also be washed in cold water and dried in a machine on low (cool) air.
Crib sheets can be washed in warm water. Because the fabric is cotton, minimal shrinkage is normal.
Caring for Crib Skirts, Rail Covers, and Curtains
Because the crib skirt doesn’t touch your baby directly, you don’t need to wash it. If you choose to wash it, expect your crib skirt to shrink approximately 1/2 inch. We recommend cool air dry cycle to minimize shrinkage. After drying, be sure to remove items promptly to reduce wrinkling.
There is no need to wash your rail cover until your baby can pull up in the crib. Our rail covers are clean and crisp right out of the box, but we recommend you wash them before your baby starts teething. Wash in cold water, and dry on the “air” cycle (no heat cycle). The fill in your rail cover should not be exposed to heat when drying.
After washing, some minor re-adjustment of filling may need to be made on rail teething covers when removed from the washing machine. Flatten your rail cover, then tumble dry on air fluff cycle. Remove it from the dryer as soon as it’s done.
We recommend dry cleaning for curtains and cold water wash and steam iron for valances.
Caring for Faux Fur Blankets
The good news is that you can wash the faux fur blanket! It’s very important that you never iron Minky (faux fur)! Instead, we recommend a cool water wash and mild detergent. Remove Minky from the wash as soon as it’s done. Because it’s faux fur, Minky will regain its plush look after washing if run through the “air fluff” or lowest (coolest) cycle of the dryer. Use a steamer to get the wrinkles out of the cotton side of the blanket. (Cotton is breathable and lovely, but it does wrinkle!)
