Fabric Care & Washing

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:

 

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

Washing Instructions

 
FIRST-TIME washing instructions for LIKE COLORS:
 
1) Do not overload washing machine.
2) Use the longest washing cycle available.
3) Choose WARM/WARM setting only.
4) 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.
5) 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:
 
1) Do not overload washing machine.
