Clean Uniform? Che….
Whether you are pulling those school uniforms out of the closet after a long summer or investing in your children’s very first, there are important steps to making sure they stay clean and bright all year.
Since your child will be regularly rotating between a select few garments on a regular basis, it is important to always use cold water and a gentle cycle setting. This will ensure your dresses, slacks, skirts, jumpers, etc… won’t fade as quickly and will keep their structure longer.
In addition to the washing cycle, a correct drying method is also necessary. We recommend to tumble dry on low heat for the shortest length of time possible. Excessive heat will shrink and wear the material, overall, cutting down the lifespan of the uniform.
When the cooler months roll around, we suggest only washing sweaters when necessary. Sweaters lose shape and become dingy much sooner than other garments of clothing. If you don’t dry clean them, make sure you are washing them inside out – that way, if any nicks or pulls occur in the machine, the outside is safe.
