CARING FOR YOUR EMBROIDERED GARMENT
Caring for your embroidered garments from The Print Plug in Nampa is essential to preserve their intricate designs and ensure their longevity. While it's always advisable to follow the fabric care instructions provided with each item, here are some additional tips to help you maintain their pristine condition:
For the gentlest care, we recommend hand washing your embroidered clothes and accessories. However, if you prefer machine washing, follow these steps:
- Turn the item inside out before washing. This protects the delicate embroidery from potential damage during the washing cycle.
- Avoid washing the embroidered item with other clothing that may have zippers or buttons, as they can cause friction and snag the embroidery.
- Choose a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Harsh detergents can fade the colors and damage the embroidery over time.
- Whenever possible, air drying is the best option to prevent any potential shrinkage. Lay the item flat or hang it up to dry naturally.
- If the embroidery features bright colors, consider using cold water for the wash. This helps reduce the risk of color bleeding and keeps the embroidery looking vibrant.
When it comes to ironing your embroidered garments, exercise caution to protect the delicate stitches:
- Avoid using steam while ironing, as moisture can negatively affect the embroidery.
- Never place the iron directly on the embroidered area. Instead, use a pressing cloth or a clean, lightweight cloth as a protective barrier between the iron and the embroidery. Iron on the reverse side of the garment whenever possible.
By following these simple care instructions, you can ensure that your custom embroidered items from The Print Plug in Nampa retain their beauty and quality over time.
