Uniform Cleaning and Drying Instructions
Screen Printed uniforms should be washed immediately after each use if at all possible, in cold water.
The rinse cycle should also be set to cold water.
We recommend using Tide or a similar detergent in cold water.
Prior to washing, turning the garments inside out will help preserve the screen printing or pre-printed lettering. This will also help prevent the garment from prematurely fading.
Do NOT wash uniforms with other items, such as towels!
DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH!
Heavily soiled garments (grass, dirt, clay mud, or any other heavy stain) using a pretreatment is recommended.
If you must use a dryer, us damp dry or air dry with no heat. High heat will cause shrinking, bleeding of garments, printing to crack, and twill to wrinkle.
DO NOT OVERLOAD WASHER.
Remove uniforms immediately after washing and hang garments to dry.
DO NOT OVERLOAD DRYER.
Uniforms will stick together, especially if they have been screen printed.
Remove jerseys immediately from dryer (if dried at all) and hang dry.
Uniforms placed in dryer can and will cause damage to all types of garments that are customized. This is the #1 reason a garment has issues with printing cracks or peeling.
DO NOT DRY CLEAN OR IRON.
To avoid static and lint build-up, use anti-static agent such as dryer sheets.
All of these tips are very important and a MUST to keep your new Custom Uniforms looking and feeling like new.
(Kudosports has tested all garments before they are customized. We have taken sample garments and screen printed them with logos and numbers - washed multiple ways, dried at multiple temperatures to see what will happen if not washed in COLD water and hung to dry. All garments will damage when dried with heat. Dryer's do vary based on age, model, and other factors - so we DO NOT RECOMMEND ever putting screen printed garments in the DRYER.)
