Washing + Care | ring sling baby carrier
Studio Tekhni Slings are easy to care for and are created for all-day use. Please note, all of our ring slings are cut longer and wider than actual size to allow for shrinkage in the first washing.
The Sling ring sling baby carrier arrives to you in loomstate, and will need a wash to be ready for use. An initial wash in warm water with low spin is recommended with subsequent washes on a gentle cycle with cool water. Use of natural detergents without any optical brighteners will also help keep colors from fading. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners, as these can break down the fibers.
The Sling can be hung to dry or tumble dried on low, followed with a warm steam iron to reduce wrinkles and soften up after a washing. A sock may be placed over the rings to protect both the rings and the dryer from scratches and extra noise.
The Sling ring sling is made to withstand the rigors of everyday life-- however please treat with care to extend the life of the fabric. Remember to follow our safety guidelines before using, and always inspect your Sling for signs of wear or damage. Be sure there are no tears, holes or worn out points in the fabric. If so, discontinue use immediately.
