COLOR: To improve the color of your clothing, add vinegar to the first wash load of dark colors for natural fibers or cotton/poly blends.
STAINS: To reduce permanent stains, treat as quickly as possible. Start by blotting or sponging the stain to remove as much as possible before treatment. Never rub the stain as it can cause the stain to spread or force the stain deeper into the fabric.
WASHING: Hand wash your garment to increase the longevity of your item. If applicable machine wash in cold water inside out. To reduce wear from washing, do not wash clean clothing. Excessive washing causes clothing to wear out faster. To reduce snags and damage from washing, ensure that garments are completely closed up; zip-up all zippers, and close all snaps and buttons.
DRYING: To reduce heat damage from drying, hang dry your garments or dry flat. Heat and agitation in the dryer environment can cause clothing to wear out at an accelerated rate. If you do use a dryer, use the lowest heat setting advisable and insure your garment is inside out.
