Funny you should ask, we love to talk about washing! First, you should check the care tag, some pieces do require more specific care. However, the majority can do the following.
For best results, we highly recommend you do a cold hand wash or a hand wash setting on your washing machine. We ONLY use mild washing liquid designed for handwashing and avoid those nasty ones with all the bleach and colour brighteners as they love to eat up colour. Make sure the detergent is completely dissolved in the water before putting your precious things in. If you do choose to use your washing machine, we’d put it in a bra/delicates bag. Wash the garment on it’s own for the first couple of washes and then only with similar colours, we don’t need to explain why, right?
Never soak, wring or rub your JRC (or probably any other clothing you own), nothing needs that (unless it’s you soaking in a warm bath on a winter night).
Rinse in cool water and then pop it on a hanger in the shade or lay it flat to avoid stretching to dry.
Some fabrics may shrink slightly when washed. Just turn them inside out and give them a quick iron and they should return to their original shape and size.
Now you want to iron, are you crazy? No, but seriously, that’s fine. Be sure to check the type of fabric and select a suitable temperature on your iron. Perhaps check the iron in an inconspicuous area before ironing the entire garment. For dark colours, we recommend ironing them inside out to help your piece stay as dark and beautiful for as long as it can. Garments with embroidery or other fancy things should also be ironed on the reverse side.
While there was no judgement on the fact you like to iron, we thought we'd let you in on a little secret. We steam all of our JRC garments and we can't speak highly enough of it, it's also a lot better for your clothes! The steamer we recommend is the Kambrook Swift Steam and it's only about 50 bucks.
