Here are the bare bones information needed for washing your Ju-Ju-Be.
Machine Wash Cold, Gentle Cycle. Line Dry
Here are some more tips from the Pink Ladies.
- Wash your bags in a mesh laundry bag or pillow case to keep it safe in your washing machine.
- Turn your bag upside down so it doesn’t fill with water and unbalance your machine.
- Use a Color Catcher Sheet with bright linings just in case they bleed.
- If your lining does bleed soak the bag in Oxy Clean then launder again.
- If it’s extra stinky, dry it in the sun. Turn it inside out first, so it doesn’t get sun damaged.
- In general, it’s a great idea to dry it inside out to be sure all the nooks and crannies are covered and allow a few days for it to dry completely.
- After washing a change pad make sure to get all the water out. Lay the change pad on a towel and roll it up tightly to squeeze out all excess water. Repeat with dry towels until no more water comes out. The change pad will not dry within a day or two.
Now a few tips if you have extra stains that the washing machine didn’t tackle:
- Saline wipes are a great things to try on dirty spots, they get things amazingly clean.
- Fels Naptha (a laundry bar) works wonders on stains. Wet the spot, rub the bar on the bag, and then lightly scrub with a wet cloth or tooth brush. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
- A favorite stain remover of Pink Ladies is 1 part original blue Dawn dish soap, 1 part baking soda, and 2 parts hydrogen peroxide mixed into a paste. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes or more depending on the stain then scrub it using a toothbrush.
