We recommend to wash your Mama Nuka at 30 degrees celsius. Please don’t use fabric conditioner, instead use high quality detergent, and don’t spin. As you might know, cotton usually shrinks after the first washing. Your Mama Nuka will shrink more or less 4 inches. As your wrap was dyed with organic herbs, it will slightly bleed after the first wash. Please don’t worry - your wrap will get softer and even more beautiful after each wash. Our little advice: a little bit of vinegar and a spoonful of sugar in your laundry will keep the colours bright. Please don’t dry your wrap in the dryer, instead hang it up to dry. You can steam- iron it later on and enjoy your freshly washed Mama Nuka Baby wrap!
