After removing the hat and veil, the remainder of the suit/jacket can be machine washed on a cool temperature of 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius).

Higher temperatures will soften the elastic and will not remove propolis stains and may only soften it, potentially leading to sticky deposits left in your washing machine.

We do not recommend the suit is tumble dried because if there are still wax or propolis deposits on the cloth the higher temperatures of the drier may cause the wax to melt - leading to marks on the next load of clothes through the machine.
