Follow these easy steps to keep your new gal pal looking her best! First, we suggest spraying her with a protective spray such as ScotchgardTM to protect her color (Scotchgard can be found in most retail stores in the craft/fabric aisle or in the laundry detergent aisle). Please put off washing her for as long as you possible to preserve her shape and color. We recommend washing only 1-2 times a year. Then when needed, place your bag in a pillow case and seal with a hair tie or rubber band. Simply place in your washing machine with a splash of detergent and wash on the cold cycle. Then allow her to air dry and viola! She’s as good as new! If you have any questions at all, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
