Cotton is a natural fiber obtained from cotton plants and is readily dyed. It is found in woven and knit garments and is known for its easy care. The vast majority of cotton garments are machine washable and dryable. Cotton is often combined with other fibers like elastane to give them extra stretch.

Most garments containing elastane can be machine-washed with Studio by Tide. Note, avoid hot water and chlorine bleach as both can damage the elastane fibers. Unless care labels advise otherwise, tumble dry elastane-containing garments on cool.
