There is nothing more exciting than receiving your Explore More, Do More products, but please don’t forget to read these instructions for washing your items so you can be sure they will last a very long time. Printed t-shirts and hoodies need to be treated slightly differently to regular t-shirts and hoodies.
We highly recommend you always wash your item inside out and on a low temperature.
Wash and dry your items inside out.
This is a simple but effective step in your washing routine that can help make your
clothing last longer. By turning the items inside out you’re protecting the print and stopping other items from interfering with the clothes or damaging them.
Wash your clothes at a low temperature.
Washing on a low temperature is the most risk-free way to wash an item using your washing machine. High temperatures can damage items, so keeping your machine on a low-heat or cold wash to ensure the print and material are protected during the cycle.
Don’t add extra spins.
It’s tempting to add extra spins to your washing machine’s cycle, but we advise against it when washing t-shirts and hoodies.
Do not tumble dry.
Air drying is preferable when you’re cleaning and drying your t-shirts and hoodies. The best way to dry these items is to air-dry them on a clothing drying rack, or outside on a washing line. These methods of drying give the best results and also protect the printing and the quality of the clothes.
Always iron inside out.
It’s obvious, but it’s really important to iron inside out. Prints can get caught on irons and will often be damaged by direct heat – so always iron your t-shirts inside out to protect them. Hoodies don’t need ironing. We recommend putting your iron down to a lower heat the first time you iron your t-shirt so you don’t accidentally apply too much heat to the area.
If you take your t-shirts and hoodies to a cleaning service, you should – and don’t be shy to – request a low heat and inside out wash cycle – so, ensure you put a note in with the items so they know how to treat your t-shirts and hoodies too.
