Teampacks.com’s 4 Easy Steps to Care and Maintenance of your Team Uniforms
Discounting the inevitable possibilities that your team uniform may get torn and tattered regardless of the special care you may give them, here are 4 easy steps to help your new team uniform retain its original qualities and color throughout the season.
STEP 1: Pre-Wash
Uniforms can be soaked in cold water with an additive designed to remove protein stains (grass, dirt, clay, blood). Uniforms should only be pre-soaked for 30 minutes and then promptly placed in the wash cycle.
STEP 2: Deodorizing the Uniform (optional)
Add ¼ - ½ cup of vinegar to the cold water to deodorize it without damaging it.
STEP 3: Wash your Uniform
DO NOT dry clean
To extend the life of your uniform and for optimal cleaning results, immediately wash the team uniforms after wearing.
Wash only in COLD water, do not use warm or hot water
DO NOT wash whites and colors together
Use a MILD detergent
DO NOT use bleach
DO NOT use fabric softener
STEP 4: Drying
The best way to dry your team uniform is to let them hang dry. DO NOT use heat in the process of drying your uniforms. If you must use a dryer, use an air dry or damp dry setting, because high heat may shrink the uniform.
DO NOT iron
Storing your uniform
Let your uniform completely dry before storing. To prevent fading, discoloration and mildew, keep the uniforms in a cool, dry area. Avoid long term exposure to light.
