Care Tips | How to Make Your Clothes Last!

Posted by Stormie Leslie on

Here are some quick tips on how to care for your printed garments, because we want them to stay looking fresh for as long as possible!

First off, use cold water to wash. In reality, you don't ever need to use hot water for any of your clothes, unless you work in a hospital or a place exposed to bacteria. Cold water will get your clothes plenty clean, and it doesn't take a toll on your garments! 

Wash fabrics with similar colors, and of similar texture to avoid too much friction. 

Turn clothes inside out to wash and dry. This will help protect the print and keep it from fading quickly over time. 

Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals! Mild stain removers are usually safe, but avoid putting directly on the print if possible. 

Dry with low heat. Putting clothes in a hot dryer is never ideal (especially printed apparel). This can not only affect the look of the print, but also alter the texture and way the shirt fits over time. It's recommended to always tumble dry on low heat or hang up to dry. 

Never iron over the printed area of your shirt. Some of our products are printed with plastisol inks or heat pressed vinyl - they WILL melt!

Inevitably all t-shirts fade, crack, shrink and get worn down over long periods of time and multiple washes.  By following these care tips you will be able to keep your garments looking and feeling fresh for many more years to come!

Happy adventuring!
