When you have invested a lot of money into your child’s school uniform, you’ll be sure to want to take good care of the clothing so that it lasts for as long as possible. It’s extremely important that you always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when washing and drying the garments. You will usually find these details on the label. When washing knitwear items, we recommend you turn the garment inside out first. When washing sweatshirts for the first time, we strongly suggest that you turn the garment inside out and wash before the first wear to avoid the excess fluff rubbing onto the polo/shirt. What’s more, if an item has a velcro fastening, make sure it is closed before washing so that the abrasive material doesn’t damage other items.

Many items are better left to dry naturally rather than being tumble dried. It’s also worth noting that if you tumble dry a pleated garment, you will likely reverse the treatment and it will no longer be pleated.

With regards to ironing, if they do need to be ironed, be sure to carefully set the temperature of your iron so that you don’t damage the clothing. Avoid ironing over any print work.
