Hand wash with mild soap in lukewarm water. Do not wring out the garment - roll it in a towel and gently press to remove excess water. Dry flat on the towel, pulling the garment into correct shape, away from direct heat and sunlight. Change a towel as soon as it is wet. When your garment is just slightly wet, put it on the rack until dry - do not stretch it. Do not iron.
