Laundry Tips To Maintain Your Uniform’s Look

Want to keep that “new” look your uniform had when you took it out of the box? We’ve got the tips you should follow to extend that new uniform look you love.

Embroidery

For the best results you should machine wash your uniform using the hot or cold setting on your washing machine. Once you finished washing your uniform, place it in the dryer and set it to tumble dry at normal-medium heat. Keep your uniform wrinkle-free by using the regular iron-steam or the dry setting on your iron. Want to save the hassle and send it to the dry cleaners? Your embroidered uniform can be dry cleaned using any solvent. Depending on your uniform’s style, you can bleach it as needed.

If metallic thread was used to embroider your design, make sure to wash it using the hot setting and avoid bleaching the garment. We also suggest that you do not tumble dry your uniform or use heavy duty detergents as the detergent can cause slight discoloration to the metallic design.
If you’re taking a metallic threaded uniform to the dry cleaners, let them know to iron your uniform using the lowest setting.

Sequins 

For embroidered sequin designs, wash the uniform using warm water and a mild detergent. You can use chlorine with cold water as well. If you want to leave it up to the dry cleaners, let them know to avoid trhrichloride and/or thricloroethelene and to use normal solvent when washing the uniform. Ironing with a rotary machine will not ruin the design, so feel free to let them know when you drop of your uniform.

 

 

Twill

For uniforms decorated with twill, follow the same washing and care instructions that are listed on the uniform’s tag.

 

 

 

 

Shimmer Fabric Applique

You’ll need to hand wash your uniform to maintain the quality of the decoration.  Use a clean sink or large basin filled with lukewarm water and a few drops of mild detergent. Gently swirl the clothing in the sink or knead the detergent into the fabric for a minute or two until the uniform is soapy. Rinse your uniform thoroughly and gently squeeze out the water. Lay the uniform flat to dry.

 

 

 

Glitter Applique

Turn your uniform inside out and wash it using a mild detergent at the warm or hot setting. Do not use bleach to clean your uniform if designed with glitter applique decoration. To dry your uniform, set the dryer to the normal setting. For the best results, do not send to the dry cleaners or use fabric softener.

 

 

 

Rhinestones, Twill with Rhinestones and Sublimation with Rhinestones

Do not apply stain treatment on the rhinestones. For any rhinestone decoration, machine wash your uniform using cold water and the gentle cycle. Do not place your uniform in the dryer. To maintain the quality of the rhinestones, hang your uniform to dry and avoid stretching or twisting it to remove excess water. Do not use bleach, fabric softener or use an iron on rhinestone decorated apparel.

Follow the care instructions on your uniform’s tag if your uniform features additional decoration options. Failure to follow care instructions can result in damage to your uniform’s decoration.

 

SequinDots

Do not apply stain treatment on the rhinestones. For any SequinDot decoration, machine wash your uniform using cold water and the gentle cycle. Do not place your uniform in the dryer. To maintain the quality of the SequinDots, hang your uniform to dry and avoid stretching or twisting it to remove excess water. Do not use bleach, fabric softener or use an iron on SequinDot decorated apparel.

 

 

 

Sport Grip
