How to care for your organic muslin

How to care for your organic muslin


We at Bloomsbury Mill are all about creating products that not only feel great but also stand the test of time. And when it comes to our organic cotton muslin, we want to make sure you get the most out of every snuggle, swaddle, and soothing moment. That's why we've put together this guide to help you care for your beloved muslin, ensuring its super softness lasts for years to come. 

Gentle washes for gentle touches:
When it's time to give your muslin a little TLC, just pop them into the washing machine – it's really that easy! Opt for a gentle wash cycle with cold or lukewarm water. Harsh detergents and super hot water can cause unnecessary wear and tear on the delicate fibres of your muslin, so keep it cool and gentle for the best results.

Say NO to bleach and fabric softeners:
While it might be tempting to use bleach or fabric softeners to keep your muslin looking bright and feeling soft, these harsh chemicals can actually strip away the natural softness and integrity of the fabric. Stick to mild, eco-friendly detergents instead to maintain that oh-so-soft feel.

Handle with care:
Treat your muslin with the love and care it deserves. Avoid wringing or twisting it too vigorously when washing, as this can cause stretching and damage to the fibres. Instead, gently squeeze out any excess water and let it air dry naturally for the best results

Keep it separate:
To prevent snagging and pilling, it's best to wash your muslin separately from rougher fabrics like denim or towels. This will help preserve its softness and ensure it stays snuggle-ready for years to come.

Let the wind do its thing by hanging them out naturally. But if time is of the essence, a tumble dryer on low heat is your friend for a quick refresh without sacrificing that cosy feel.

Stain removal: 
Stains happen, but worry not!. If you really need to use a product go for chlorine-free bleach, however, there are natural stain removers out there or you can try creating your own with white wine vinegar, lemon, baking soda, natural soap & sunshine.

Storage Solutions:
When your muslin isn't in use, store it in a clean, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid folding it too tightly or storing it in plastic bags, as this can trap moisture and lead to mildew. Opt for breathable storage solutions like cotton bags or baskets instead.

Remember, your organic cotton muslin is more than just a fabric—it's a cherished companion for all of life's little moments. With proper care and attention, you can enjoy its super softness for many years to come. So go ahead, snuggle up, swaddle your little ones, and soak in every precious moment with your beloved muslin by your side.

Happy Cuddling!
