Laundry Instructions: Cool or warm water wash, tumble dry low heat or hang dry. DO NOT BLEACH OR ADD FABRIC SOFTENERS. The carbon-suffused mono-filament nylon is sensitive to heat and should not be exposed to laundering heat in excess of 160 degrees F. Wash at 90oF (Maximum), and tumble dry at low heat or hang dry. This medium weight fabric will dry very quickly.
