All you need to take care of your OMNIFERA wraps.
WASHING Your wrap arrives in a loom state. It is required to wash your wrap prior to a first use.
Always follow washing instruction on the label of your wrap. Use a mild detergent (such as our Olive Laudry Liquide Sensitive) and do not use harsh detergents that contain bleaches or brighteners. Fabric softener reduces the life of the fabric and makes it lose grip (you can use our Laudry Rinse instead). Every wrap requires different temperature depending on contents of the fabric.
If your wrap requires a hand wash, wash it gently in your bath tube in a luke warm water. Use a mild wool detergent (such as our Olive Laudry Liquide Sensitive). Never squeeze your wrap after washing. Roll it in a towel and press gently with your hands (perfect time to use your Beach MOM for this purpose!). Place horizontally when drying. Iron your wrap on silk/wool settings.
DRYING We do not recommend tumble drying, though tumbling them shortly at a low temperature after drying can help soften and ‘break in’ cotton and linen wraps. NEVER tumble dry wool and silk blend wraps! Also avoid drying silk and wool blends in a direct sunlight.
IRONING Cotton and linen wraps can be steamed to avoid the fabric creasing along the same lines repeatedly, which can lead to wear. Wool blend wraps can be ironed on a low heat settings and silk blends should be ironed on a cool settings.
