Garment Wash Guide

WASH ON 30, REDUCED CYCLE

We recommend washing at 30 degrees (lower if possible). Heat can cause fading & shrinkage of the garment & will degrade the print faster. Spinning your garments at 1400 rpm & long washes (over 1 hour) will eventually take its toll on your garments. Try & keep the revolutions down, & washes short. Treat your garments nicely & save some electricity.

 

HANG DRY (OR IF YOU MUST, TUMBLE DRY LOW)

Tumble dryers can cook garments & cause fading, shrinkage & degrade the print. We recommend hang drying your garments, but if you need to use a tumble dryer make sure to keep the temperature low.

 

WASH INSIDE OUT

Flipping your clothing inside out will add a layer of protection & will prevent other garments in the same load rubbing against the print.

 

WASH WITH LIKE COLOURS / MATERIALS

Don’t wash your nice white t-shirt with a black hoodie, that’s a sure way to get a grey, bobbly t-shirt. Same applies to heavier fabric like towels, denim, clothing with zips, buttons etc, these can rub excessively & damage the print.

 

DO NOT BLEACH

Using harsh detergents or bleach on your garments will fade the garment & is a sure way to mess up your prints. We recommend using a mild detergent. If you have a stain you need to remove, use a product you can apply directly to the stained area before washing.

 

DO NOT IRON OVER THE PRINT

Ironing over prints is not a good idea. High heat can cause damage to the print.

 

By following these guidelines you should be able to enjoy your custom garments for years to come.
