Uniform Cleaning and Drying Instructions
Uniforms should be washed immediately after each use if at all possible. Turn garment inside out to help preserve ink printing and twill. Use only cold water for all settings of the washing machine and do not wash with other items, such as towels.
DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH!
DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER!
DO NOT DRY CLEAN!
Heavily soiled garments should be pre-treated. Any of the pre-treating brands found at your grocery store will do just fine as long as it does not contain bleach. For blood stains, soak in cold water before washing. An oxygen based laundry booster can also be used to wash garments. If possible, use a high water level to minimize mechanical action on uniforms and do not overload washer.
Remove uniforms immediately after washing and hang dry the garments.
If you must use the dryer, use the damp dry or air dry setting. The lower the setting on the dryer, the better it is for the garment. A high heat setting can cause shrinkage, cracking in the ink printing, wrinkling in the twill, etc.. Overloading the dryer can cause uniforms with ink printing to stick together. Remove garments from the dryer immediately when the dryer has finished.
DO NOT IRON!
Store in a cool, dry area, protected from direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting.
