Cool Neck Scarf Care Instructions

To hydrate scarf:  Place in 2 cup storage container bowl or pint canning jar.  Add 1 cup of cool/cold water.  Leave in water 4 hours or overnight. Gently pat with paper towel to absorb any excess water.  Scarf is ready to use or cool down in refrigerator.

To cool down:  Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. DO NOT PUT IN FREEZER, cooling beads will break and dissolve in water if frozen.

To clean:  Gently handwash in cool water with baby no-tears shampoo. Hang to drip off excessive water.  If beads dry out and shrink follow hydration instructions to rehydrate.

To store:  Allow to hang until cooling beads dry out completely.
