Shouldn't be washed unless absolutely necessary
 from Ontario, Canada,  Aug 10, 2014

This bedskirt is great for my 4-year-old's girly bedroom. I would just caution anyone against washing it unless absolutely necessary. As other reviews mentioned, it is very time-consuming to iron all of the layers. When I purchased it, I thought I just wouldn't bother ironing it since it is ruffled anyway. However, after receiving it, I decided to wash it before putting it on the bed. That may have been a mistake. The layers are all made of a very light cotton, but they are attached to nylon. When I washed the bedskirt, each layer wrinkled and "shrunk" up so that you could see the nylon beneath between each of the layers. Even on my lowest iron setting (which is for nylon), the nylon would melt and pucker slightly, so to avoid damaging the bedskirt, I had to flatten out each individual layer, making sure that none of the nylon was beneath the layer I was ironing, instead of just ironing over all 5 layers at once as I had intended. Even with only a twin, this took over an hour to do. That being said, it does look lovely on my daughter's bed. I just think using a slightly heavier cotton for the ruffles and/or using a fabric other than nylon for the main structure would have improved it significantly. So while I would recommend it to someone, it wouldn't be without the warning!
