_Care Instructions Guide
We’ve spent a lot of time and effort designing and manufacturing great products for you. And your, as our leet customer, trust us with your precious bucks to pay for production and delivery of your favourite pieces. With that in mind, it’s only fair that we’d help you to enjoy your clothing, wall art and other accessories for as long as possible. So here’s a quick guide of basic but essential instructions to take good care of your gear.
Some of our clothes may have a set of care instructions icons printed on the inside label. But even if they don’t have it printed, all of the following applies to our clothes. Here’s a rundown of these icons to help you identify them:
|Machine wash cold with like colors. Max recommended temperature is indicated.||If/when bleach is needed, only use non-chlorine bleach.||If tumble dry is needed, do it only on low setting.||Do not iron printed areas. If needed, cold iron inside-out.||Do not dry clean.|
Here are some care instructions to make your clothes last longer:
- High temperature washes can fade and crack the print, and high temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print. Try to avoid it.
- Machine wash cold, inside-out, on gentle cycle with mild detergent and group by similar colors. Don’t mix white, red and black colours, for example. Wash black with black and dark colours, white with white, and other colours with similar ones.
- Refrain from using fabric softeners, or use as little as possible.
- If you need to use bleach for any reason, only use non-chlorine bleach.
- Do not iron the decorated (printed) areas. The hot iron will damage the print. If necessary, cool iron inside-out.
- Tumble-dry these garments on low setting, or hang-dry for a longer life span.
- Be wary of washing and drying on a high setting, especially when the garment is 100% cotton.
- We do have shirts that come pre-shrunk to help avoid shrinking issues. Each product that is pre-shrunk will always have this information clearly shown in its description.
A note about Dry Cleaning:
We recommend that you refrain from dry cleaning. But if for any reason you require to take your garments for dry-cleaning, avoid at all costs solvents with trichloroethylene (consult your dry cleaner about this substance).
Our mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe. So it’s ok to heat your drink in the microwave and stick a used mug in the dishwasher later to clean it. But, they’re still just as strong as the material they’re made of, in this case, ceramic. So they can crack if bumped against hard surfaces, as any ceramic mug would. As for the printed areas, avoid scratching it with sharp objects, and never rub it with any sort of steel wool. It takes quite a lot to ruin the printed areas on these mugs, but, steel wool can surely help you get there faster.
Phone cases are quite sturdy. They can be easily removed from the phones to be cleaned and washed when you need to do it, but do not scratch the printed area, do not use abrasive detergents and never put them in the dishwasher. Trust us, some people put all sort of things on the dishwasher. But we’re leet users and know better, right?
Our rectangular pillows have a moist-wicking cover which helps to keep them clean for longer, but this doesn’t stop them from getting dirty from contact with non-liquid stuff. Neither the covers nor the inserts of these rectangular pillows are machine-washable, so please clean them only by hand, and avoid using abrasive cleaners. Usually a water dampened tissue is quite enough. Also, please avoid taking them to be dry cleaned, but if you really need to do that, please check the note about dry cleaning and the use of trichloroethylene in the Clothing section above.
The case of the throw pillows can be machine washed according to the care instructions mentioned above for clothing. However, the pillow insert should only be hand-washed.
Canvas and Posters
It seems obvious, but we thought we’d mention it just the same. Canvas and Posters do not like water, or any liquids for that matter. When you need to clean them use a dry and soft cloth or disposable tissue, or dust it off delicately with a soft brush.
