These bags are are easy to care for by washing them in COLD water and flat or line drying. They are unprocessed fabric so they may appear excessively wrinkled and shrunken after the first few washes depending on your water hardness and laundry detergent. DON'T BE ALARMED. You can stretch them back out and reduce the wrinkles by pulling on the fabric and smoothing the wrinkles on a flat surface when the bag is wet. After stretching and smoothing, lay it flat and air dry. Permanent shrinkage will be 7-10%.
