Although proper maintenance of your garment does require a small amount of effort, in the long run it can greatly extend the life of your garment. We recommend following all procedures exactly, without substitutions or alterations.

 

Pre-Soaking Instructions

Pre-soaking is a critical step in stain removal. It is okay if the soiled spot has naturally dried, but pre-soaking will not be effective if the garment has gone through the washing and drying process.

 

Please adhere to the following instructions for pre-soaking:

  • Fill a bucket or sink with WARM water.
  • Apply DAWN LIQUID SOAP over all soiled areas.
  • Let the garment soak in warm water for an extended period of time, preferably overnight.

Washing Instructions

FIRST-TIME washing instructions for LIKE COLORS:

  • Do not overload washing machine.
  • Use the longest washing cycle available.
  • Choose WARM/WARM setting only.
  • For first time washing colors, add ONE CUP of white vinegar to the load in addition to high quality detergent. This improves the fabric's color retention.
  • DO NOT put garment into dryer until it has been inspected to ensure stains and soils have been cleaned. If you need to repeat soaking and washing, do so.
FIRST-TIME and REPEATED washing instructions for WHITES:
  • Do not overload washing machine.
  • Use the longest washing cycle available.
  • Choose WARM/WARM setting only.
  • Use an appropriate amount of high quality detergent.
  • DO NOT put garment into dryer until it has been inspected to ensure stains and soils have been cleaned. If you need to repeat soaking and washing, do so.

Drying Instructions

NEVER dry garments using HIGH heat, and NEVER dry garments to completion.

 

We recommend these directions for proper drying:

  • Do not overload dryer.
  • Use the Permanent Press setting or the lowest temperature possible -never use high heat!
  • Remove items from dryer BEFORE they are completely dry.
  • Hang up items immediately to avoid wrinkles.

Red Wine

  • Pour white wine over soiled area.
  • Proceed with normal pre-soaking, washing and drying instructions.

Tomato Sauce

  • Work it around, rinse with warm water.
  • Proceed with normal pre-soaking, washing and drying instructions.
