Washing:
We suggest washing with your usual detergent, on cold and tumble dry low.  Do not leave your fabrics sitting in the washer wet for ANY length of time as this is when ink transfer/bleeding contact occurs.  Please make sure to be gentle with your bamboo fabric, it is delicate!  Wash cold and tumble dry on air and do not over dry.
