Care Instructions

Keep all your Parachute items looking their best with these general care tips:

  • Avoid products containing benzoyl peroxide, alpha hydroxy acids and chlorine bleach. These items may include: skin care and acne medication, hair products and dyes, cosmetics, toothpastes and household cleaning products.
    For stain removal, try Oxyclean instead of bleach.
  • Do not use fabric softeners, dryer sheets, harsh liquid or powdered detergents. Looking for a new brand? Our Laundry Detergent is gentle yet powerful.
  • Don’t wash with clothing – zippers, hooks, etc. cause abrasion.
  • Wash similar items together – same color and fabric.

MATTRESS

A few suggestions for making your mattress last:

  • The quilted cotton top is for sleeping on, so you should never flip the mattress over to sleep on the underside.
  • For even wearing throughout its lifetime, you should rotate your mattress every six months.
  • We recommend protecting your mattress with a mattress pad.
  • If a stain occurs, spot clean as needed with warm water and mild detergent.
