How do you keep kids' dressing gowns soft and fluffy?

As always, check the care instructions label before washing. After you’ve washed your dressing gown, pop it in the tumble dryer for a short time - as long as the care instructions say you can. This is likely to improve the fluffiness and softness. If your dressing gown is made from fleece, avoid the tumble dryer! Instead, hang it up and allow it to dry naturally.

  • Avoid using fabric softener
  • Use hangers while drying to maintain its shape
  • If possible, refrain from over-washing
  • Wash inside out
  • Dry indoors or anywhere that is away from direct sunlight

Worried about how you'll manage to store any more kids' clothes and nightwear? It could also be time to organize your kids closet.
