HOW TO: Wash/Dry Fink
I use high quality printing inks for all of my printed fabrics & take extra steps to heat set the inks to ensure a long life!
I still wear tops I made almost 10 years ago and the print is holding up beautifully on all of them.
It’s laundry day and it’s time to clean your FINK garments.
So what do you do?
Here’s the scoop –
Turn them inside out
Wash in COLD WATER Only
Use MILD DETERGENT (NO Oxy or Bleach Additives)
HAND WASHING is ALWAYS BEST (gentle cycle in machine ok for most FINK cotton/lycra garments – hand wash only for rayon & linen pieces)
Hang or Lay Flat to Dry
Hot Iron is OK – Iron inside out
*I send care cards along with each garment – I recommend the same care for handmade solid (unprinted) garments, too
NEVER wash is WARM or HOT Water
NEVER use Oxy or Bleach Detergents (or other harsh detergents)
NEVER Wring them out (it will pull the fibers of the fabric apart and loosen the lovely print – gently press excess water out instead)
Never Dry them in a Hot Dryer – Dryers really beat-up garments and will do the same for FINK
