Screenprint

Purple Satin

Be EXTRA

The best way to give your original artwork garment its longest life, is to lovingly handwash it (inside out and in cold water), then hang it to dry.

But let’s be serious, ain’t no ‘body got time for that!

Purple Satin

But not too gentle

Fabric softeners can break down some the inks used in screen printing. So maybe avoid them.

Oh the irony

Heat from an iron can damage and degrade the print. If you absolutely must iron, use the lowest setting with the shirt turned inside out. (I promise no one cares if your graphic T is a little wrinkly though.)   .

Turn Inside Out

While washing and drying those clothes are bumping and grinding. All that rubbing can ruin the print.

Cold shoulder

Screen-printed clothing likes is chilly. Wash and dry on your lowest heat options.  This will prevent shrinkage and stretching.

Adulting is hard

Hard water can quickly deteriorate the appearance of a screen-printed shirt. If have hard water, you can pre-soak your garments in a gallon of water with 1 cup of vinegar before washing to protect your shirt from potential damage.

(But that is a lot of work that I personally, wouldn’t do.)

Purple Satin

Be Gentle

I’m sensitive, and so can be the prints. Use a mild detergent, avoid things that say they “fight stains”, or whitening agents.

Hang it up

Hang drying is the safest way. If you can’t wait that long, you could use the delicate cycle of a dryer.

Storing your shirt on a hanger instead of folding it will also help to preserve the print.
