Step 1: Wash and dry your items inside out
This is a simple but effective step in your washing routine that can help make your printed and personalised clothing last longer. By turning the items inside out you’re protecting the print and stopping other items from interfering with the design, or damaging it.
Step 2: Wash your garment on a low temperature
Washing on a low temperature is the most risk-free way to wash an item using your washing machine. High temperatures can damage items, so keeping your machine on a low-heat or cold wash can ensure the print and material are protected during the cycle.
Step 3: Don’t add extra spins
It’s tempting to add extra spins to your washing machine’s cycle but we advise against it when washing printed garments.
Step 4: Do not tumble dry
Air drying is always preferred when your cleaning and drying your personalised printed garments. The best way to dry these items is to air-dry them on a clothing drying rack, or outside on a washing line. These methods of drying give the best results and also protect the printing.
Step 5: Always iron inside out
Prints can get caught on irons, and will often be damaged by direct heat – so always iron your garments inside out to protect them! We also recommend putting your iron down to a lower heat the first time you iron the item, so you don’t accidentally apply too much heat to the area.
