How do I wash my Moriko Organic garment?
Washing instructions are printed on the reverse side of the label inside each of our garments. In general, wash whites and colored garments separately in cold or lukewarm temperature water. Turn the garment inside out to wash and dry. Use mild laundry soap (non-toxic, biodegradable type is preferred- Soapnuts a.k.a Reetha or Areetha).
Can I use bleach?
Do not use any type of bleach as it will fade the colours and weaken the garments’ fibre strength.
Will my garment shrink?
Please also note that conventional cotton is generally treated with chemicals to reduce the shrinkage effects. Our organic cotton is not treated, so it is possible for it to shrink 5-7%.
Will my garment fade with repeated washings?
Like any cotton fabric, repeated washings will fade color. Often times you will see the darkest shades fade more quickly. By following our recommended washing instructions, you are sure to get the standard color life. Hand washing and line drying (out of direct sunlight) will only increase color longevity.
Please note that washed items are not eligible for return or exchange.
