Always read the care label before washing your clothes. Always wash your clothes with similar garments sorted by color; light and dark. To spare the prints, we recommend that you wash garments turned inside-out. In the case of the reversible sweatshirts we recommended to turn the screen print side inwards. As the garments are made of 100% cotton, there will be some shrinkage. Be sure to wash the garment in the right temperature and stretch the garment with caution while it is still damp after washing to regain the original form. Hang drying garments are the most gentle drying method. Ironing your clothes on medium temperature, preferebly iron the garment turned inside out. Use a mild detergent fit for colored clothing, otherwise the print will be affected and fade faster All these recommendations will ensure a longer life the garment and will also be more gentle way to save the earth’s resources.
