Top 6 Tips When Washing Corporate Uniforms

Having a corporate uniform help reinforce your company’s values and brand by presenting a consistent appearance every time someone interacts with your business. Corporate uniforms can ultimately make the difference between feeling like just another job or pouring your passion into creating something special together with fellow team members who appear unified from head to toe! Since corporate uniforms plays a vital role in your work, taking care of it also has the same level of importance. Here are some care tips for you:

Tip #1: Don't Ignore the Care Label Instructions

For optimal results, use the recommended laundry detergent and fabric softener as specified on each uniform garment. Spot removal is essential to remove stubborn stains before they set in and make sure that any spots are always pre-tested on a small, inconspicuous area of the material for colorfastness first. Follow all care tags to prevent garments from fading or shrinking due to incorrect washing temperatures, mild cycles etc., and seek professional services if advised by the manufacturer’s instructions.

Tip #2: Separate Your Laundry

In order to properly treat a stain, you should first determine the cause for it and then follow the appropriate stain treatment. Always treat stains soon after noticing them before they set in. Use a mild detergent or cream cleaner suited to the fabric of your uniform and apply it directly onto the affected area with a soft brush or cloth, breaking down any surface grime before washing.

You may also need to launder more vigorously by agitating items directly into soap suds when dealing with very tough pockets of dirt that cannot be easily lifted off through regular laundering methods.

Tip #3: Choose the Right Detergent

When it comes to corporate uniforms, you want to make sure you're using the right detergent. A good rule of thumb is to look for detergents specifically designed for use on commercial garments/fabrics as they typically come with components that can help tackle tough stains and improve fabric care - like a low-foam formula with an anti-static agent.

Plus, you'll also be helping protect your skin from any potential irritations by avoiding harsh chemical ingredients! Choosing the right cleaning product tailored to the fabric in question is key in order achieve maximum stain removal while still keeping your clothing and wearer safe.

Tip #4: Go for a Cold Wash

Done with the tips above? It’s time to wash your uniform. But you shouldn’t just wash it with any water. You must choose cold water because it saves energy and also keeps your clothes from fading. Shrinkage is also avoidable using this tip. Cold water is also gentle to the fabric which means that this tip doesn’t just apply to your work uniforms but also with your other clothes.

Tip #5: Air Dry or Use a Low Heat Setting

Now that you’re done washing your work attire, it’s time for it to dry and the best way to do so is air dry. This way, you can keep your uniform from shrinkage while keeping it fresh looking. If the situations calls for the use of dryer, you may use a low heat setting to keep your fabric from getting damaged.

Tip #6: Iron with Care

Just like when washing, you must also iron with care. There are also ironing instructions in your care label that you must follow. But most of the time, it is best to start low while gradually increasing the temperature. Iron your uniform while it is still a bit damp.
