Using mild soap, wash the string bag in cold (or warm) water by hand or in the washing machine on a gentle cycle. Do NOT soak with other items. Ultimately wash before wearing so that the color does not rub off on other fabrics or on your clothes.
Use a low dryer setting or dry flat to restore its original shape. 
To prolong the life of your bag and to maintain its original look and form, we suggest placing your LACOURSIÈRE string bag in a laundry bag or pillowcase when using a machine washer and dryer.
