By following below steps you can maintain the quality of your printed garment:
Don't dry clean
Never dry clean printed garments. The dry cleaning process has high tempraatures and lot of chemicals that will damage printing on the garment.
Wash and dry inside out
We recommend washing and drying your printed garment inside out to protect the print from fading or wearing down. When washing and drying clothes, they rub against each other and can cause irritation or abrasion of print. If you wash the garments inside out, there is an extra layer of protection between your print and the other clothing in the laundry.
Choose cold or warm water for washing
When washing printed garment, you should never use temperatures that exceed 80 C. If the temperature of the water is too high, it can weaken the print, causing it to peel or crack with time. We recommend washing in cold or warm water.
Use mild detergent
Any detergent that has special additives to "whiten", "fight stains", or "brighten colors" is going to be too harsh for your printed garment. Also, “green” detergent is typically too corrosive for printed garment.
Dry on low or hang dry
Hang dry is the best way to dry printed garment, but it is okay to tumble dry or use low heat. Just like with the washing process, you want to use minimal heat to protect your printed garment. If you choose to hang dry your clothing, it will also help minimise wrinkles seen in the printed garment after washing.
Don’t iron directly on it
Just like with washing and drying, ironing can be very high temperatures, so you want to avoid ironing the garment when possible. Ironing can cause the print to melt or burn. If you must iron the shirt, make sure you are using low heat and you have a cloth or towel between the iron and printed garment.
No bleach or fabric softeners
Just like with detergent, fabric softeners and bleach can be very damaging to your printed garment. We suggest NEVER using bleach or fabric softeners on your printed garments, to ensure the print lasts longer.
