Wash canvas with Signature Detergent on the normal cycle to achieve the deepest clean. Always check tags to refer to the manufacturer's direction before selecting a wash cycle for canvas. Some canvas items should be washed in cold water to prevent shrinkage.
Wash with like colors and fabrics only.
Dry & Finish
Cotton and linen can generally withstand tumble drying with high heat; however, canvas items (such as tote bags and sneakers) are best line-dried to preserve shape.
To remove wrinkles, iron on the highest temperature setting, or steam.
Always store items clean. 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.
