Eucalan’s gentle, no-rinse formula is the perfect way to care for your handmade creations. First, you’ll want to test for colour-fastness to ensure that darker colours don’t run into lighter colours when washing. If there are any spots or stains, you can pre-treat with full-strength Eucalan as needed. We recommend washing your items on the delicate cycle of your washing machine; click here for easy instructions for both top-loading and front-loading washing machines. To dry, hang quilt out of direct sunlight or lay smaller items on a flat surface. CaringForQuiltswithEucalan
