Polyester

A synthetic plastic fiber also known as PET. Resistant to stretching, shrinking, abrasion, wrinkles, and mildew. Easily washed and quick drying, polyester is sensitive to heat and doesn’t breathe well.

You can wash polyester, and washing polyester is simple. To do it at home, only a few key polyester washing instructions are required. In fact, polyester is one of the easiest fabrics to wash because you can actually machine wash polyester. To ensure the synthetic fiber does not break down from heat, opt for cool or warm water when washing.

Polyester washing starts with pretreatment. 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.

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.

All polyester washing instructions are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
