Wash and Care Instructions for your Traction Unit
Spot Clean only. We recommend that you do not soak this product, as it will ruin the foam. If a spot gets soiled, use a damp cloth (you can also use a mild soap if necessary). It is a good idea to use a wash cloth or light weight cloth between your neck and the traction device.
