Three tips and advice for maintenance
Fossflakes recommends washing your Fossflakes products three to four times a year at 60°C. Not only will washing at a high temperature keep them clean and free of allergens, it helps maintain the volume and loft of your Fossflakes products.
Even with repeated machine washing and drying, rest assured that your Fossflakes products will not become lumpy or change its excellent properties.
Avoid fabric softener and enzyme based detergents when washing Fossflakes product as these may compromise the properties of the filling. Follow the instructions on the products.
After washing, you can tumble-dry your Fossflakes products for 45 minutes at a low setting, <60°C max. Remove your Fossflakes product promptly when the tumble dry cycle is complete. If not removed promptly from a hot tumble dryer, the heat from the dryer drum may damage the filling inside the pillow.
We recommend easy tumble drying without taking your pillow or duvet covers off! Not only does this save you trouble, it will protect your Fossflakes products even better!
If possible, give your Fossflakes product a nice airing outside for a couple of hours.
- Maintaining volume and comfort
Fluff and shake your Fossflakes product regularly. Grab a corner (one at a time) and give it a few quick shakes.
For Pillows: Fluff your pillow every morning when you wake up to make it feel like new. Your body heat releases moisture into your pillow and the action of shaking/fluffing will release the trapped moisture and helps your pillow to breathe.
For Comfort U Body Pillows: Simply grab one leg at a time and shake it in an up-down wave motion.
Do an occasional tumble drying at low setting<60°C (irrespective of washing) in order to maintain its natural volume. Remove your Fossflakes product promptly when the tumble dry cycle is complete. If not removed promptly from a hot tumble dryer, the heat from the drum may damage the filling inside.
