The baskets may arrive out of shape or bent but don’t panic. All you need to do is put water on it, reshape or mold it back to how it should be, and leave it to dry. Once dry it is good to use. You can equally clean stains off it with water and a cloth.
Trim any extra straws you see sticking out with scissors. It is not unusual because they are handwoven.
