First of all I would like to say a massive thank you for adding one of my pieces to your wardrobe!
All clothing items have been heat treated and can be machine washed, however before you dive in, please read the following.
Here are a few ways your new item can be cared for:
1 – Spot cleaning is the ideal method to protect your new garment. This is useful to clean stains from a small area from your item without needing to clean the rest of your garment. Simply use a fresh, wet cloth with a mild detergent to scrub the spot that need cleaning and rinse with cold or warm water. Be careful not to scrub the artwork.
2 – Hand washing is the best way to ensure your garment is fully washed. Be gentle and manually scrub the areas you want clean while avoiding the painted area. If your garment isnt extremely dirty and requires a regular wash, this is the best way to do it.
3 – Machine washing (least preferred) is best done only if your garment is very dirty. Turn your garment inside out and wash on the delicate cycle. (If you are washing a jacket, button it up inside out).
Note: Only use a small amount of mild detergent.
Do not use bleach, softeners or any alcohol-based cleaner. Alcohol of any kind will ruin the artwork.
This is not to deter you from washing your item, I only want to see your garment last you as long as possible so you can get the most joy out of your piece.
