Care Instruction

From fabric development right through to construction and embellishing products with your school logo, our team is always ensuring that our products are made to high quality standards.

In order to have your garments looking better and lasting longer, please pay particular attention care instructions attached to your item.

Washing

It is recommended that you wash all garments before they are worn. There are 2 reasons for this. All dyes will then be completely set, and the garment will also be more comfortable.

When your washing comes into contact with undiluted washing powder – spot bleaching can be the result. To avoid this, agitate the water to distribute the powder if you put your detergent in before the clothing. If you put your clothing in first, make sure it is all completely immersed in the water before adding the detergent. Of course, a machine with a powder dispenser is easiest. Chlorine bleach and pre-soaks are not recommended.

TIP#5

General Care tips for your Garments

TIP#1
Stains - The sooner you treat a stain, the better. The longer it sits, the more time it has to work itself into the fibers. Immediately diluting stains in cold water is often the best remedy.

TIP#2
Drying - Please avoid using a clothes drier wherever possible. If this is unavoidable, always use the cool setting. Using the drier can cause shrinkage and your garments won't last as long. Always hang your washing inside out in the shade and try to avoid the clothesline (unless it is shaded) on hot days of 30oC or more.

TIP#3
Ironing - If you have a print on your garment, always press the garment before the first wash (except nylon garments). This will help extend the life of the logo. For nylon garments, a piece of fabric should be placed between the iron and the print. Hot iron settings are also responsible for pilling, shrinkage and colour loss. A warm setting is preferred.
