1. Washing the cover:
Unzip the cover and remove it from the mattress to wash by hand or in a washing machine. If you use a washing machine, make sure to zipper the cover closed to avoid snagging the fabric. Be sure and use a mild detergent and COLD or COOL water. Using hot water may cause the cover to shrink which would make it not fit properly.
Dry on cool settings or hang to air dry.
After washing, the cover should go back on the core easily. If the fit has become tight due to shrinkage, please contact us immediately for a replacement.
2. Once the cover is removed, the Newton Crib Mattress can also be washed. Here’s how:
Place your Newton Crib Mattress in the shower or tub.
Spot clean the soiled area (or the whole mattress!) with cold or cool water.
Just make sure to use a mild detergent and to avoid hot water.
3. To dry the Newton Crib Mattress:
Shake rigorously to release any trapped water droplets inside the core.
Lay it on its side to dry. This will take approximately 2-6 hours, depending on how much air circulation is in the
room. If you want to speed up the process, place the core in a well-ventilated area and/or in front of a fan.
Never place in a clothes dryer or use a hand dryer on it.
What to avoid:
DO NOT USE HOT WATER - when washing, use only cold or cool temperature water. Washing with hot water will cause the cover to shrink, and not fit properly on your Newton Crib Mattress.
DO NOT USE HEAT TO DRY - Please be sure when speeding up the drying process, to only use cool air solutions. PLEASE DO NOT USE A DRYER TO DRY THE COVER OR THE NEWTON CRIB MATTRESS. DO NOT USE A BLOW DRYER OR HEATING ELEMENT TO DRY AS HEAT MAY CAUSE THE COVER TO SHRINK AND CAN DAMAGE THE NEWTON CRIB MATTRESS.
