As with anything used for babies it is important to know how to care for your Connecta. Below you can find the care instructions for your Connecta with specific instructions for Denim, Wool, Silk and Wrap Versions.
Connecta Care Instructions
Where possible spot-clean your Connecta with a soft cloth and warm water. When necessary you can machine wash your Connecta on a delicate cycle at 30 degrees or less.
Any Connecta containing wool or silk should only be spot cleaned or hand washed.
Do not tumble dry, iron or bleach your Connecta. Avoid using washing detergent with optical brighteners or fabric softener. Where possible remove buckles or clip them together.
Denim 100% Organic Connecta
The Denim 100% Organic Connecta requires washing before use to eliminate the chance of dye transfer. To this effect the Denim 100% Organic Connecta can be washed once at 60 or twice at 40. It is the costumer’s responsibility to ensure there is no more dye transfer.
Afterwards the Denim 100% Organic Connecta can be cared for as per the care instructions.
Harris Tweed/Wool Connecta
Wool is an amazing fabric, it does not require the same amount of washing and can easily be spot cleaned. If you do need to wash the entire Connecta please either hand wash or, if available, use a low temperature wool cycle on your machine with no spin. Washing wool on a high temperature or using a spin cycle can cause the wool to felt which can damage the fabric and cause the carrier to be misshapen. Only use a fabric detergent which is suitable for wool and which does not contain any optical brighteners or fabric softeners.
Spot cleaning or handwashing are the best ways to care for your silk Connecta – If needed you can use a cool silk cycle with no spin. Please note that washing in the machine may alter the look of your Connecta. Only use a fabric detergent which is suitable for silk and which does not contain any optical brighteners or fabric softeners.
Wrap Version Connecta
Please check the blend of the wrap used in your Wrap Version Connecta, if your Wrap Version Connecta contains wool or silk please treat as per care instructions for wool or silk.
