Whether your little one accidentally wiped their sticky fingers on their cape, or a cup of juice spilled as they were rushing to save the day, we got you covered. 

Superhero kids refueling before saving the day

Whether you’ve had your hero cape a week or years, it’s helpful to know the care instructions. Good news, no special ingredients required to clean the satin material. A quick hand wash is the simple solution to maintain your cape in pristine condition. 


Creative Capes washing steps for your superhero cape

Ingredients to clean:
All you need is a sink, water and a squirt of liquid soap. I have used liquid hand soap, shampoo or stain removal and they all work equally well.  


1. Close your Velcro closure so it doesn't snag your fabric.

2. Add a dab of liquid soap to the stained satin fabric.

3. Wash your cape in a sink with room temperature water. Don’t be afraid to rub together the satin fabric.

4. Rinse cape until the suds are gone.

5. Hang up your cape to drip dry. I typically hang the cape over the shower head fixture to air dry.

It takes minutes and super easy! 

Consider having your little hero assist in swishing their cape around in the soapy water to have some fun while taking care of their cherished costume. It is the perfect moment to explain to your child that all clothes used to be hand washed before the washing machine was invented!
