Clothing Care Instructions

If you are purchasing one of our rad DBD sweatshirts or t-shirts, please make sure you read through our care instructions. We want your clothing to stay in excellent condition as long as possible!

 

 DO’S

  • Definitely wash clothes inside out. This protects the screen print from abrasions from other items sharing the washer.
  • Wash items with those made of the same (or similar) fabrics to decrease pilling and lint transferring.
  • Use a very mild detergent or a product like Woolite™ when washing screen-printed clothing.
  • Always wash in cool water. All water temperatures below 90° Fahrenheit are safe for screen-printed garments.
  • Hand-wash the garment (if you've got that kind of time) or just use the washing machine's gentle cycle. That will work just fine!
  • Hang the garment or lay it flat to dry. We do NOT recommend drying the clothes in the dryer!
  • Use a cool iron, if necessary, and iron the screen-printed garment inside out.
DON’TS
  • Don’t dry clean items. The chemicals in the dry cleaning process can cause spotting or staining.
  • Avoid bleach, especially chlorine bleach; the agents in bleach will discolor fabric threads and the dyes used in screen-printing.
  • Do not use fabric softener on screen-printed garments. Fabric softeners degrade the ink used in the screen-printing process and causes cracking and/or fading of the screen-printed areas.
