How to Care for Macrame
Macramé Care and Cleaning Guide
Cotton fiber comes from a cotton plant, which makes it a 100% natural material. Cotton is soft and pleasant to touch, yet it is very durable. To ensure your new macramé art lives a long a happy life, please follow our instructions on proper care and maintenance.
Hanging your macramé
- Cotton fiber macramé pieces are meant to be used indoors. If you plan on hanging your art outdoors, ensure you protect it from the sun and water exposure.
- Keep the fibers away from an open flame (candles, fireplaces)
Cleaning your macramé:
- Spot clean with white, damp cloth using a mild detergent
- Always use cold water to prevent shrinkage
- Avoid any detergents with bleach
- To dry, hang in a well ventilated area
- Clean while the stain is fresh
- Run your item under the cold tap through the back of the stain for 3-5 minutes, and then rub the stain gently
- Use mild detergent as needed
Be on a lookout for pests
- Like any other natural fiber (for example, wool or silk) cotton can become a food source for various pests. To prevent this from happening, make sure to remove any dust at least once a month from your macramé by using a white damp cloth and duster.
- Your macramé piece may be a little wrinkled from the shipping journey when it arrives to you; You can iron or use a steamer on your macramé to smooth it out.
