Washing your kids' cotton clothes

Now, here's the deal with cotton - it can shrink if exposed to high temperatures. So, to prevent shrinking, it's important to wash and dry your children's cotton clothes with care.

Before washing, separate white clothes from colored clothes to avoid color-bleeding stains.

And when it's time to wash, make sure to use cold water instead of hot water. Hot water can cause cotton clothes to shrink. Also, don't use bleach or harsh chemicals that could damage the fibers. Instead, choose a gentle detergent that's kind to delicate fabrics. Oh, and remember to turn those clothes inside-out before washing to protect the fabric and keep color in its place.

When it comes to drying cotton clothes, it's best to go easy on the heat. Set your dryer to low or hang them up to air-dry. If you do use the dryer, take the clothes out while they're still slightly damp and let them finish drying while hanging up. Overdrying them can cause shrinking, and we don't want that!

Ironing cotton clothes

Ironing cotton clothes is simple, but be sure to keep the heat on low or medium to avoid damaging the fabric. And if your child's clothes have prints or designs, flip them inside-out before ironing to keep them looking fresh.
