The best way to care for any shirt is to machine wash using a mesh bag or hand wash as much as possible. This will help decrease the natural wear on the fabric as well as prevent broken or missing buttons. Industrial pressing at the cleaners will loosen, break and lose buttons.
Dry cleaners can also scorch and weaken the fabric and will inevitably lead to fraying and tearing (especially at the seams). Dry cleaning is really tough on fabric, if you take your shirts to the cleaners be sure to request laundering. When using starch shirts should be washed in-between pressing to remove the starch build-up, especially from the dry cleaners.
Pre-treat underarms and collar and cuffs each time you wash even if you don't see a stain.
Use Stain Solution to remove ring around the collar, stubborn stains, grime and grease commonly found on cuff & shirts. When stains are removed, launder with Signature Detergent.
Remove and store collar stays to put back in after pressing.
Use Signature Detergent with delicate or normal cycle and cold water. We recommend using Mesh Bags in the machine to protect fabric and buttons. For best results, use hot water on cotton and linen fabric.
Do not put in the dryer. We recommend hang drying.
Iron and steam shirts while damp for best results. Always press from the tip (points) of the collar or cuff inwards, not the reverse which will cause wrinkling.
