Apparel Care Guide

Make your apparel look and feel new by doing these 6 simple things.

Turn Garment Inside out

Before washing your garment, turn them inside out. This helps to preserve the fabric and colors from fading or bleeding and makes it simpler to remove any wrinkles when ironing.

Don`t Bleach

Bleaching your clothes can damage the fabric, and weakens the structure of the garment. It is best to avoid bleaching if possible, and instead use a gentler detergent or stain remover to clean your clothes.

Machine Wash Cold Only

The garment should be washed on a cold temperature setting in a washing machine as washing on hot temperature settings may cause shrinkage or damage to the garment.

Preferably Air-Dry

Air-drying is a great way to preserve the shape and quality of clothing as it prevents shrinkage or stretching that could occur with heat drying. It also helps reduce energy costs associated with using a dryer.

Tumble Dry On Low Heat

If air drying is not an option, you may tumble dry on low heat. This helps to prevent damage to the delicate fabric while still giving clothes a thorough drying.

Don`t Iron the Print

Ironing can damage the print on the clothing, so it is important to not iron it to preserve the design and colors.
