We recommend spot cleaning for everyday maintenance. Patting your sling with a cold washcloth will do the trick. If your sling does need an overall cleaning, follow the instructions for your sling below.

Bamboo

Unthread your sling. Wash it in your machine alone on gentle cycle, in cold water. Hang to dry out of the sun. Iron on medium heat to remove wrinkles.

 

Linen

Unthread your sling. Wash it in your machine alone on gentle cycle, in cold water. After washing, hang the sling to dry or pop it right in the dryer on the low setting. Steam iron on the hottest setting to remove wrinkles.

 

Silk

Unthread your sling. Wash it in your machine alone on gentle cycle, in cold water (this method will give a more matte or raw look to a silk sling). After washing, hang the sling to dry. Do not machine dry. Steam iron on the hottest setting to remove wrinkles. To preserve the original sheen of a silk sling, we recommend a combination of spot cleaning and environmentally-friendly dry cleaning.

 

Cashmere

Unthread your sling. Handwash in lukewarm water and reshape while wet. Lay flat to dry out of the sun. Do not bleach or iron. Dry clean optional.

 

*Remember, just like a pair of black jeans or a colored t-shirt, each time you wash your sling, it may lose a bit of color.

**Remember, Sakura Bloom slings are made from all-natural textiles. To keep them looking as fresh as possible, reshape while wet and steam iron, stretching the fiber as you work. Once dry, wear normally to regain original shape and length.
