Fabric Care

Fabric Care Instructions



  • Use a quality detergent - additives can cause pilling and fading.
  • Wash in small loads.
  • Turn everything inside out.
  • Sort loads by similar weight fabric and colors.
  • Be sure to pre-treat any stains on items before washing. (Machine washing and drying without pre-treating may set stains permanently)
  • Use non-chlorine bleach.
  • Use dryer sheets instead of fabric softener.
  • Zippers, snaps and buttons should be fastened before washing to prevent snags
