Treat 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.
Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing Tencel.
Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.
Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, press the water out of the item.
Turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Washing Bag Bundle. Select the delicate cycle on the washing machine, and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low.
Add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.
For especially sweaty, dirty, or musty items, add 2 capfuls of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative and use a normal cycle.
Dry & Finish
Machine dry at a medium setting, or hang to dry.
Tencel is resistant to wrinkles; if any wrinkles appear, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish.
To iron, hover over the item using the steam setting, or press using a warm setting.
To freshen between launderings, spritz with Delicate Spray.
Knit items should be stored folded to prevent stretching or distorting. Woven items such as pants can be hung.
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.
