Care Information

Birth Announcement Pillows:

Birth Announcement Pillows are used more for decoration and as keepsakes, spot Cleaning is recommended.  

If machine washed, please be advised that some colors may fade more thanothers and the pillow will loose it's "new" look.   Please wash on delicate cycle

and dry on low heat. Some colors may also "bleed", please be careful with darker colors, especially RED.

Please keep away from fire.

Embroidered Items:  

Special care should be taken when laundering embroidered garments.

Washing: For best results: turn garment inside out for washing (cold water) and drying (delicate cycle).

Zippers and buttons can pull threads.  Do not dry completely.  Hanging or laying to finish drying keeps the design nice.

Please be advised, some colors may bleed while washing.

Ironing: Items are embroidered with Polyester.  NEVER Iron directly on the embroidered design, the iron can melt the embroidery thread!

Embroidered fabrics should always be ironed on the reverse side.  It is not recommended to wet embroidery prior to ironing or to use a STEAM iron.

IBJ Couture outfits:

Just a tip, they are handmade...  Be gentle and treat with care :-) 

Hooded Towels:

Bath towels of all types will look fresher and last longer if they are cared for properly. Manufacturers often coat new towels in a special fabric softener, which means the towels look extra fluffy and soft on the shelf, but don't absorb water well when you first bring them home. For this reason, it's best to wash your new towels before first use.

It is suggested to add a cup of vinegar to the wash cycle, when washing the towel for the first time.  This will help to set the color and prevent fading, especially of deep tones.

While a tumble in the dryer assures a fluffy towel, you don't want to overdo it.  The heat from the dryer can really damage fibers. Try using a lower-heat setting, or alternate between air and heat drying.

Dark and brightly colored towels should be washed separately. For your special, more expensive towels, using Woolite or another gentle-care detergent will keep them at their fluffy best longer.

For Character towels with embellishments, such as bows, please remove them prior to washing them.
