WASH & CARE INSTRUCTIONS
To keep your personalized tshirt looking its best & sparkling for years to come.
Please follow these simple guidelines.
Stick with cold water.
Hot water is very harsh and typically unnecessary. By using cold water, you’ll be treating your tees to a gentler bath and preventing unnecessary strain. Plus, you’ll use less electricity, reducing your impact on the environment and lowering your utility bill!
Avoid harsh cleaning products.
Put away the bleach and avoid harsh detergents. Like hot water, they aren’t needed and they may slowly destroy the condition of your t-shirts. Instead, find a gentle detergent and use a basic (no bleach) stain remover when necessary.
Turn your tees inside out.
It only takes a moment to turn your screen or digital printed tees inside out before placing them in the washing machine (or under a hot iron), but this simple step will reduce fading and stress. If the quality of the screen or digital printed design is important to you, reduce its contact with the washing machine to ensure that the ink won’t be strained.
Don’t wash after every use.
Some of you are probably recoiling in disgust right now, but remember that every time you wash and dry your clothes, you’re speeding up the aging process. If your t-shirt is truly dirty (i.e., there is visible dirt, a stain, or a smell), wash it. If not, fold it back up and return it to your closet.
Heat is your t-shirt’s worst enemy. In addition to avoiding hot water, keep your tee away from high-heat dryer settings. Instead, allow them to hang dry to prevent damage as well as shrinkage. If you simply don’t have the time or space, you could also dry your tees on low or remove them from the dryer halfway through the spin cycle (allowing them to hang dry after that).
Sort your laundry.
You know the drill. Separating your clothes by color before washing (and washing each pile in a separate load) can prevent the colors from running. This is especially important if you’re washing a new t-shirt. Placing your favorite white tee into a washer with your new red shirt will inevitably lead to frustration (and a pink shirt, most likely).
T-shirts will eventually wear out and fade – it is only natural after all. A lot depends on how you look after your tshirt , the strength of colour dyes used by the garment manufacturer, printing process used for the design or logo and etc.
At the end of the day you may find that the worn look is fashionably in anyway!
