Are Live Good products optimal for people with chemical sensitivities?
Since these materials are certified organic and the entire production process non-toxic, they do not contain chemicals that can transfer onto your skin and cause irritations, which is a common problem among chemically sensitive people.
Why are there tiny flecks embedded in the cotton fabric?
Live Good does not employ the use of high-impact dyes on any of our organic cotton fabrics and so there may be tiny specks of fabric that were not fully whitened. These specks or flecks are minute and harmless. They are simply a natural part of the organic textile process.
How do I care for my organic products?
Freshen and sanitize organic cotton-fill products by placing the insert in natural sunlight for 3-5 hours. Treat stains with a solution made from one part white distilled vinegar and three parts purified water. Sprinkle baking soda on dry fabric to eliminate odors. If storing, we recommend using a paper covering and natural cedar products to prevent moth damage.
Please pre-wash as fabrics are sized to allow initial shrinking to occur. Machine wash in warm or cold water. Do not bleach.
We recommend the use of phosphate-free, natural detergents without the addition of fabric softener. Wash fabrics separately as buttons and other rough surfaces may cause pilling.
If line drying, avoid direct sunlight. Machine dry on a low heat setting to extend the life of the fabric. Remove items immediately after drying and do not overdry. Ironing on a hot setting with high steam can restore luster to a sateen weave.
