Scrunchie Care

Thankfully, you don’t need to wash your scrunchies all that often. If you’ve been doing laundry less frequently these days, fret not. Depending on how frequently you’re wearing your scrunchie, you can get away with washing it once a month. But if you wear the same one regularly, you’ll want to wash it more often.

Linen, rayon, silk, and wool scrunchies should be hand-washed and laid out to dry. You can hand-wash them in a bowl filled with warm water or on the hand-wash cycle of your washing machine.


Cotton, acetate, spandex, acrylic, nylon, and polyester scrunchies can all be thrown in the wash with your clothes. It’s best to rinse them with cold water, so they won’t shrink, and dry them on a low or gentle cycle.

Some recommend washing them with detergent, while others suggest using shampoo. We’ll let you make that decision.



How to Hand-Wash Your Scrunchies

  1. Fill a large bowl or bucket with warm water and add a few drops of fabric softener or shampoo.
  2. Scrub and soak your scrunchies a few times gently by hand.
  3. Rinse off your scrunchies in fresh water.
  4. Squeeze any excess water out of your scrunchies and lay (or hang) them to dry in a warm, sunny spot like a windowsill for a day.
