Jersey Cleaning and Drying Tips

Screen Printed uniforms should be washed immediately after each use if at all possible, in cold water.

The rinse cycle should also be set to cold water.

We recommend using Tide or a similar detergent in cold water.

Prior to washing, turning the garments inside out will help preserve the screen printing or pre-printed lettering. This will also help prevent the garment from prematurely fading.

Do NOT wash uniforms with other items, such as towels!

DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH!

Heavily soiled garments (grass, dirt, clay mud, or any other heavy stain) using a pretreatment is recommended.

  • Spray ‘n Wash or Shout can be sprayed on the soiled areas and left for about 15 minutes before washing
  • Gels can be rubbed into stains and left for overnight absorption to loosen up the stain – wash next day
  • OxyClean can also be used during wash cycle in cold water
  • Ink stains should be sprayed with hair spray and rubbed together until the stain is gone. Then wash garment in cold water.

DO NOT DRY UNIFORMS ON HIGH HEAT.
If you must use a dryer, us damp dry or air dry with no heat. High heat will cause shrinking, bleeding of garments, printing to crack, and twill to wrinkle.

DO NOT OVERLOAD WASHER.
Remove uniforms immediately after washing and hang garments to dry.

DO NOT OVERLOAD DRYER.
Uniforms will stick together, especially if they have been screen printed.
Remove jerseys immediately from dryer (if dried at all) and hang dry.
Uniforms placed in dryer can and will cause damage to all types of garments that are customized. This is the #1 reason a garment has issues with printing cracks or peeling.

DO NOT DRY CLEAN OR IRON.
To avoid static and lint build-up, use anti-static agent such as dryer sheets.
