Care For Your Sling

Everyday Cleaning:

We recommend spot cleaning for everyday maintenance.  Baby spit up on the sling?  Spill juice on it?  No problem.  A cold washcloth will do the trick.

Thorough Cleaning:

If your sling does need an overall cleaning, there are three options.  You can hand wash in cold water or wash it, alone, in cold water on your machine’s gentle cycle.  After washing, hang the sling to dry and steam iron on the hottest setting to remove wrinkles.  Or, you can dry clean it using an environmentally friendly cleaners.  Be sure to unthread your sling before you clean it, regardless of which method you use.

Tips:­­

  • Want to make your sling even softer?  Use it!  Sakura Bloom silk and linen slings soften up beautifully through regular use. 
  • Ready to wash your silk sling?  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.
  • Sheen or Matte?  Washing gives a more matte or raw look to the silk.  To preserve the original sheen (and color) of a silk sling, we recommend a combination of spot cleaning and dry cleaning.
