Because DTG printing is the design bonding to the glue (pre-treatment) and not the actual shirt, washing incorrectly can result in excessive damage to the printed design.
While the manufacturers do provide washing instructions, these do not necessarily take into account the added print on the garment. We suggest using the follow instructions when washing your garment:
*Machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Only non-chlorine bleach, when necessary. No fabric softeners. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron decoration. Do not dry clean.*
Be wary of washing and drying on a high setting, especially when the garment is 100% cotton.
High temperature washes can fade and crack the print, and high temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print.
