is the fabric content on Plain Jane Bedding?
All of our fabrics are 100% cotton and are completely washable.
do I wash my bedding?
All bedding should be washed in cold water on a delicate cycle and dried
in a cool dryer ("fluff cycle").
are Plain Jane Bumpers constructed? How thick are Plain Jane bumpers?
We design Plain Jane's Bumper with the safety of your child in mind. Our
bumpers are 10 inches high and have a thickness of 1 1/2" with ties
on both top and bottom. Our 1 1/2" thickness addresses concerns associated
with bumpers of an exaggerated thickness and weight in regard to their
potential relationship to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
should I remove my bumper from the crib?
We suggest removing the crib bumper when a child can pull him or her self
into a standing position to avoid entanglement and/or use as a 'stepping
stone' to get out of the crib. We are also aware that many of our customers
never remove the bumper from their crib. Know thy child. . .
are your crib skirts 14" long?
Our skirts are designed to allow for the crib to be at its lowest level
(where it is for the longest amount of time) allowing the skirt to brush
the floor. When the crib is at its higher levels, the skirt will float
above the floor.
are the best blankets for babies and when?
Receiving Blanket: Baby's first blanket - this lightweight flannel
backed 36" x 36" square is terrific for swaddling your infant,
to travel with, and may become your child's security blanky.
Duvet Cover with insert: Duvets are appropriate for toddlers 12
months and beyond due to the weight and size (36" W x 50" L).
We know that 12 months seems like a long time from now but we suggest
ordering this item at the same time as the rest of your bedding to prevent
problems that might arise that are out of our control
lots, discontinued fabrics, etc. Duvets are also useful as playmats and
decoration. Our duvet covers have a button closure at the bottom edge.
Although we adhere buttons as tightly as possible, all buttons should
be checked regularly for loosening. Tighten by re-stitching if necessary.
are decorative pillows used in a nursery?
Decorative pillows are just that - decoration! If displayed in a crib,
they should be removed from the crib immediately upon baby's entry. Our
pillow collections are terrific for sprucing up an existing chair or sofa.
your sheets child-safe?
Our sheets have elastic that is continuous around the edges (not just
at the corners) and 10 pounds of pressure can be exerted while pulling
at the corners without the sheet coming off.
fabric swatches available for the bedding?
Yes, fabric swatches are available upon request.
ages are appropriate for the Table and Chair Sets?
The ages we consider appropriate are 18/24 months up to 8 years.
do I care for my Plain Jane furniture?
You will receive many years of enjoyment and use from your Plain Jane furniture
if you follow these simple care instructions. Clean with mild dishwashing
soap and warm water on a soft cloth or paper towel. Pat dry, never scrub with
any abrasive material. For extreme situations, use a commercial cleaner such
as "409" or Fantastic on a soft cloth. If you find you then need
to restore or even-out the luster of the surface, use a "Butcher's Wax"
and follow the manufacturers instructions.
