care instructions

When you receive your bonnet/tail after shipping (or after extended storage):

  • Completely mist wrinkled areas and ears using a spray bottle and cold water.
  • Smooth and re-shape the ears, and hang to dry for an easy iron-free refresh. 
  • Shake to fluff fur.

For creases in fur:

  • Thoroughly wet the fur, smooth out the creased areas, shake out the excess water, and hang to dry.
  • Shake out the item occasionally as it dries to increase air flow and fluff fur.
