How to maintain your carrier

Enzymes in a baby’s saliva that start the breakdown of the milk while still in the mouth. The enzymes are so strong that they can break down the colour of the fabric and even make the fabrics rougher and more fragile, that is destroying the carrier.

Sun intensive use without regular washing also contributes to the loss of the good appearance of a carrier.

To keep your carrier nice and strong like new, make sure to wash regularly (at least once a month, preferably once every two weeks for daily use)

– First wash with half a cup of vinegar, preserving colour.

– check that all straps and buckles have entered the drum

– Wash carriers that are used very intensively (every day and several times a day) at least once a month

– Follow our baby carrier washing instructions:

 

* for cotton baby carriers:

 Washing temperature 40°C/104°F (warm)
