Delicate laundering is best. Machine washable on cold water and can be dried on low heat. Do not use bleach, harsh detergents, dryer sheets or high heat. It is best to allow to air dry. Peshtemals will become better with use and some need to be "broken in" by washing and drying them in a dryer on a low setting a few times. This will add to a softer and absorbent towel. Please expect a small amount of shrinkage as the product is hand-loomed.
