SHAPING YOUR BASKET
I am so excited for you to receive your basket! There are a few things to remember. When I ship your baskets, some of them are not shaped. Don't worry, shaping them is fast and easy.
Unfortunately, sometimes during the shipping process, they can get a little out of shape. Best way to straighten out any kinks is to wet the areas of the basket that need fixing with hot water, place on flat surface and then lightly hand mold the basket to an even shape.
Start by wetting the basket with hot water on both sides. Be sure to wet the whole surface. Allow the water to soak in. Allowing the water to completely soak in makes the basket very pliable. Shake off the excess water and place the basket down on a flat surface for shaping. Push out the basket and roll it out twice. The entire shaping process takes just a few minutes once you get the hang of it.
Using a larger sink or bathtub works really well when reshaping the baskets. Be sure to allow baskets to completely dry before use.
