BASKET CARE INSTRUCTIONS
RESHAPING YOUR BASKET
Baskets can get out of shape during their travels and this can be easily fixed:
Simply soak the basket in water for a few seconds. You will begin to feel that the grass becomes malleable and flexible.
While the basket is still damp you can reshape.
For best results, dry in natural sunlight but if weather does not permit then in front of a heater is your next best option.
CLEANING YOUR BASKET
Baskets can be cleaned using lukewarm water. Lightly wipe down using a clean damp cloth. We do not recommend the use of soaps or cleaning products as this can affect the dyes used on the product.
