Why Muslin Is Ideal for Babies
Muslin has been a go-to fabric for babies for generations. It is a soft, gentle and versatile woven fabric made from 100% natural cotton fibers. It is suitable for all climates as its open-weave allows air to circulate, reducing the risk of overheating while keeping the wearer comfortable in most seasons. We use a specialized muslin, double-gauze, for all of our products. If you thought you knew muslin, just wait until you try ours!
Caring for Muslin
How Muslin Wears. Woven from natural fibers, you can expect a characteristically soft quilting effect in muslins after a first wash and tumble-dry. This is more subtle in our specialized double gauze when compared to traditional muslins. Think of it as endearing dimples rather than a wrinkle. It will also get softer with every wash. While our special double gauze has a 5% shrink rate after a first wash and tumble, we have factored that into the design of our products ensuring a continued perfect fit.
Machine Washing. Set machine to a normal cycle. Select cold for colors and warm for whites. Before placing items of like colors in the machine, close all fasteners and avoid washing your muslin with anything that has Velcro on it to prevent snagging. Once the cycle is finished, remove items promptly from the washing machine. Tumble dry on low and give it a little stretch/tug when it comes out warm.
Hand-Washing...bless you if you have the time! Fill a basin with warm water and add 1/2 fl. oz. of your laundry detergent. Mix the water and detergent, using your hands to gently agitate your item. Soak for one hour. Do not worry if color appears in your water, this is normal. Run cool water through item until rinse water is no longer soapy. Squeeze or push out the water. Hang to dry, lay flat, or tumble dry on low. Do not dry any items that still have stains.
Treating Stains. To spot clean a stain, mix chlorine-free bleach with water to create a paste and gently rub into the stain with a toothbrush or stain brush. To soak a stain, fill a sink or basin with hot water and chlorine-free bleach. Soak items for at least one hour. Rinse dirty water and repeat if necessary.
