Pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.
Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.
The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.
To remove odor, presoak the item for 30 minutes in cool water mixed with 1/4 cup of Scented Vinegar.
Wash fleece with Signature Detergent on the normal cycle with hot water to achieve the deepest clean. Fleece produces lint; wash with like colors and separately from other clothing.
To maintain whiteness and brightness, we recommend adding a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to each load in the wash cycle.
Eliminate static, prevent wrinkles, ease ironing, and keep clothing soft by adding Fabric Conditioner to every other wash.
Dry & Finish
Air dry or tumble dry at a low temperature. To reduce wrinkles, remove from the dryer while still damp.
Steam to remove wrinkles if needed, or between wears to freshen and remove odor. Never iron, as ironing will crush or flatten the natural pile.
To freshen between launderings, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic.
To remove pills from polar fleece, glide the Sweater Comb or Sweater Stone across pilled areas. Always work tools in one direction.
Pilling is a direct result of friction (which naturally occurs with movement), so the more you wear an item, the more likely it is to pill.
To remove lint, fuzz, and hair, use the Cashmere Brush.
Always store items clean.
We recommend storing in a breathable cotton storage bag to protect items from bugs. Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
