How I wash my Cotton Items: 
Place item in a cold water bath 
with a tsp liquid soap, 1 tsp white vinegar, 
and 1 tsp fabric softener. Gently wash.  

Larger items can be washed on the gentle cycle of your washer.

By adding the vinegar you are helping the colors not to bleed,
 and keeps the cotton from breaking down.

Drying your items: I do not machine dry any of my crochet items, 
no matter if its cotton, or acrylic, or any other fiber. 
I always hang them in the sun to dry.
