    Gentle machine or hand wash using environment friendly washing powder/detergent.
    Hang on line to dry in shade or turn the pillow cover inside out to reduce damage to the colors if drying in direct sun. I don't use a tumble dryer at home when testing my fabrics so if you must tumble dry, use a low/cool setting - some fabrics may shrink or be damaged by clothes dryers.
    FOR LINEN ONLY: Warm iron with a little steam if required.
    VELVET: Does not require ironing. Simply shake out wrinkles while item is wet then hang to dry.
