DTY care guide

Tips:

Hot iron:

Avoid using a hot iron as it can permanently burn fabrics, particularly synthetic fabrics like Polyester. Make sure your iron is on the correct setting before ironing.


Bleaching:

Avoid bleach and detergents with activated enzymes. They can cause discolouring and cause the fabric to deteriorate over time.


Tumble drying:

We do not recommend using tumble dryers. The heat from tumble drying can make fabrics shrink and warp. This is especially important for synthetic fabrics like polyester.

Add vinegar:

Add a good splash of plain white vinegar to every wash. It will make colours look brighter and remove unpleasant odours. It also helps keep your washing machine free of limescale.


Knitwear:

When drying knitwear it’s best to lay the garment flat on a towel in the shade. Hanging wet knitwear on a line or a hanger can make the garment stretch.


Stains:

Attend to stains immediately before they dry out. Stain removers can be effective, but always test it first on a hidden part of the garment.
