Generally, it is recommended to turn the Onesie inside out.

Although in principle you can use all detergents, you should rather use a mild detergent and also use a fabric softener. After all, the cuddly softness is the most important aspect of the kigurumi and you want to keep it as long as possible.

You should also not wash the animal onesies too hot, as this could damage the fleece.

It is also recommended to select the Gentle wash cycle.

After washing in the washing machine, the kigurumi can be dried in the dryer in the fresh air, although you should prefer the latter. However, it is better not to expose the kigurumi to direct sunlight to preserve the colors.

For the dryer, choose the “Air Dry” or “Fluff Air” setting as it is gentler.
