Care Instructions
All of our clothes are machine washable. We do recommend washing your clothes inside-out in cold water. You can also put them in the dryer (they have been pre-shrunk), but many of our friends tell us that the color remains richer over time if they hang dry their clothes. Please be VERY careful to add laundry soap to the machine BEFORE you add clothing - some detergents will discharge the dye if poured directly onto clothing. Please do not dry clean. The chemicals used in dry cleaning will destroy the dye colors.

*****Over time, we have come to realize that our dyes seem to be especially sensitive to citric acid (found in oranges, tomatoes, etc). Please be careful when eating anything containing citrus. If you do spill citric acid on your clothes, it will look as if the dye has been removed or bleached. The only approach we have found to be helpful is to wash the whole garment and the spot should become less obvious and hopefully will eventually fade away completely. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do in the dye studio.

*****Please do not spot treat your specially dyed garment as it will likely create an even bigger and more obvious problem. If you spotted your clothing, go ahead and wash the whole garment. Hopefully, your spot will lighten up over time.
