No worries. This does not have a negative effect on the cleaning power of the fibers. If you want to, you can brush your fibers with an animal de-mat brush.
You can wash most Ha-Ra products in your washing machine. Make sure you DON’T use hot water and no detergent with fabric softener. We recommend Ha-Ra Saponella Blue Pearls or Ha-Ra Protective Formula. DON’T dry your Ha-Ra products in the dryer. Let them air dry.
