Do not put into a washing machine!!!

This type of padding is washable, but only by hand.

The best place to wash it is the bath or shower.  Any waterproof vessel that's large enough will do,
but, obviously, these have the advantage of running water.

Use a mild detergent - old fashioned soap flakes or something like Ecover or Persil hand liquid are
good.

Put the piece of padding into the bath or shower and fill with enough hand hot water to cover the
garment.

Sloosh it about a bit (i.e. agitate it) - get in and use your feet if necessary!

Drain the water and repeat as needed.

Rinse till all the detergent you can see is gone, and then rinse again for good measure.

Allow the garment to drain till it begins to stop dripping, then put it somewhere warm to dry - not over
/ in front of a fire or radiator, and don't use a tumble dryer or anything remotely similar!  The sun is
fine though...

Do not dry clean.

NB - if your garment has metal fastenings (buttons, hooks and eyes, etc), you may want to remove
them before washing to avoid tarnishing.  Obviously remove all points.
Do you have a piece of my padding, but have lost the care instructions?

Never fear, the full info is below!
Instructions are almost exactly the same as with layered padding, but make the water cooler - luke
warm or tepid - and if possible use a detergent designed for woollens, or soap flakes (pre-dissolved).

Do not dry clean, do not machine wash, and do not dry near direct sources of heat.

See above note regarding fastenings.
These are washable.  All materials, including the cotton padding, have been pre-shrunk.

Wash on a cool machine setting, not above 40 degrees, with slow spin (if possible).

Allow to dry naturally, as above.

Do not tumble dry, or dry near a direct source of heat (other than sunshine), as above.
Do not dry clean.

Can also be hand washed as with the others.

See above note regarding fastenings.

NB - hooks and eyes if not removed can catch on the inside of washing machines and tear out
of the garment.
