1. Always use cold water, avoid hot temperatures.rn2. We recommend hand washing, but machine washing works, too, turn your caftan inside-out and use cold water and delicate cycle.rn3. To preserve the texture and natural colors of your caftan, we recommend washing with a gentle, natural soap and avoiding any soaps containing harsh chemicals. Do not use bleach or detergents containing bleach. Natural dyes treated with iron are very sensitive to acidic content such lemon juice or vinegarrn4. Natural dyes bleed more easily than synthetic dyes, so be sure to always wash with like colors and always on cold.rn5. Hang dry your caftan if possible, avoiding direct sunlight to prevent bleaching. This will help to preserve the fibers for longer. If you must use the dryer, we recommend using cold or the lowest heat setting possible.rn6. We love the slightly wrinkled texture of cotton, but if you prefer a smoother look, we recommend using a steamer instead of direct ironing. You can also hang your caftan in the bathroom as you shower, allowing the steam to smooth wrinkles away.
