  1. Before sending material for steaming make sure that it is completely dry and that all traces of salt, if used, have been removed.
  2. If you have used any form of wax as a resist please ensure that all traces of the wax are removed from the fabric before sending it for steaming.
  3. Whatever outer wrapping you use for your parcel, please make sure that the inner packaging is of polythene so that there is no chance of your fabric coming into contact with any moisture before it reaches me.
  4. Return post and packing are charged at cost, and need to be added on to the steaming cost calculated using the rates shown in the table above. Please indicate whether you would like your steamed items sent back by First Class post, by Recorded Delivery, or by Special Delivery.
