- Cool wash is always best - a hot wash will not only damage the prints, but also the fibres of the garments. Always ensure you're washing in temperatures lower than 40°C.
- Avoid bleach - sometimes, our household detergents can contain bleach (to give you the brightest whites!), which will damage the colours in the print work. Avoid using bleach as much as you can.
- Soaking the clothes can damage the prints - a big part of the printing process is the drying process. If the prints are soaked for too long, it could weaken the bonds between the print and the garment.
- Inside out for maximum protection - turn your printed garments inside out before throwing them in the wash. This helps avoid friction in the washing machine, which might wear away the prints.
- Don't put them in the dryer - high temperatures can be brutal for both the print and the garments!
