Cleaning Instructions

Never wash paper cards. These instructions are for Copag 100% plastic cards only. Please be advised that washing 100% plastic playing cards may cause permanent damage even if you believe that you followed these instructions correctly. Accordingly, wash your cards at your own risk. Steps for cleaning:
