Care Instructions for Your Onbuhimo

Baby spit up on the carrier? When possible, spot clean your carrier with a soft cloth and warm water. Need to wash? Read on.

Washing:
Keep the carrier open to the widest setting at the base
Load in the machine alone. Some people put the carrier inside of a pillowcase.
Set temperature to low or medium, on the delicate setting.
Add a small amount of detergent with no optical brighteners* if it doesn't say no optical brighteners, it has them. Not sure? Use a half cup of vinegar instead. We like to load some in the wash and some in the fabric softener compartment.
Drying:
Hang to dry. When it is almost dry, but still damp, you can pop in the dryer on LOW for 10 minutes.

Ironing:
If you'd like to iron, please check the care tag. Most can be ironed on medium heat. It will help soften
* If it doesn't say no optical brighteners, it has them! Not sure? Use a half cup of vinegar instead. We like to load some in the wash and some in the fabric softener compartment.

Nature Clean Liquid, Seventh Generation Liquid, Ecos Free and Clear and Ecover (In the US). 

NOTE:
Do not use fabric softener or bleach products – or detergents which include them!
