How to take care of your rebozo:
When working with a rebozo it's important to always provide clean service.
This means that your rebozo should also be clean before giving a treatment with it to a woman. A rebozo is made with hundreds of threads woven together. Each artisan put their heart in the process. We put our heart in the process of giving a treatment. Therefore as we clean our own space before touching a woman, also the rebozo should be clean, it's an extension of our heart. Midwives recommend active birth workers to get at least 2 rebozos which they can use in their work to have always a clean one on hand.
Here are basic washing instructions for cotton rebozos. They can be washed both by hand or in the washing machine.
Wash at least once before use.
Preferably 40 Celsius Degrees
Soft program/Delicate wash
Dry in Shade
Tie the fringes together to avoid tangling/ Use a wash bag (Or use a sock to protect them)
No bleach, Preferably no tumble dry
After wash you can softly comb the fringes straight with your fingers or with a dry scrub brush.
