washing ooia products
Wash your ooia products once before the first use.
After wearing your ooia products, simply put them into a laundry net and wash them in the washing machine at 40°C ideally in the easy-care wash cycle - you can also do this along with other dark laundry (with wool detergent or color detergent without bleaching agents, citrate or citric acid).We recommend our ooia Washbag to protect the high-quality materials of your ooias when washing in the washing machine. With our light-colored ooias, we recommend that you wash them with dark, non-staining laundry in the first wash and wash them with similar colors in the following washes. Wash the ooia Feel Dry Top in a laundry net together with similarly colored laundry at 40°C easy-care wash cycle (color detergent without bleach).
Once they are dry, you can wear them again.
