How to Care for your School Uniform

How to care for your School Uniform

We all want the uniforms that we purchase to last as long as possible so how do we care for them and make them last longer?

Sew Aussie Uniforms is here to help with some simple advice on how you can care for your school uniform and ensure it lasts.

How to care for your School Uniform

Make sure that you read the care label first which will outline what the uniform is made of and how to care for it. On all Sew Aussie Uniforms the care instructions also include helpful washing hints.

Stains, The longer a stain is on the fabric, the more time it has to work itself into the fabric’s fibres. Immediately treat by placing the garment in cold water which will help dilute the stain which is often the best thing to do before you start treating the stain.

Drying, Try not to let washed garments sit in the washing machine for extended periods of time. It is best to hang out straight after the wash and to try and avoid direct sunlight as this can fade colours. In most cases you want to avoid using a clothes drier as this can cause shrinkage and you want the garments to have as much wear as possible. If you must use the clothes drier only use the cool setting.

Ironing, A logo or print can be affected by ironing. If there is a logo or print on your garment iron it before the first wash (except nylon garments) which will extend the life of the logo. For all nylon garments place a piece of fabric between the iron and the print.

We recommend using a warm iron setting – NEVER use hot iron settings as this can damage the garment which may cause pilling, shrinkage or alter the colour.

Other Helpful Hints Which Will keep your Sew Aussie School Uniforms looking Fantastic & Lasting Longer:

  • Follow the care instructions that is on the garment
  • When washing keep garments made of like fabrics & colours together
  • Garments should be washed before they are worn, this helps with comfort but more importantly colour fastness.
  • Pre-treat all stains before washing, without doing this stains may set in permanently
  • Do not bleach or soak garments, NapiSanPlus® is recommended to remove stains or colours that have run & to brighten whites.
  • Dissolve washing powder into water before adding garments – DO NOT put undiluted washing powder directly onto the garment as spot bleaching can occur
  • Never hang your garments out in direct sunlight.
  • Fasten all zips, buttons and studs prior to washing. This reduces the risk of damage or getting caught during the wash cycle.
  • When washing, use cold water gentle machine wash cycle
  • A simple trick to protect the colour of your garments is to always wash them inside out
