Care Guide for the Classic Shirt

December 30, 2022

Here are a few tips to make sure you can keep your shirt looking the business for longer.

WASHING

You can machine wash the shirt at a max 30°C, with similar colours finishing off with a rinse cycle at no more than 800 rpm. To do things even better, use a laundry net to protect the fabric from any damage, pointy zips or the machine drum. It works great on your shirt and you can use it for any synthetic garments you have and avoid microplastics getting into the waterways.

DRYING

You probably already know this, but just in case, tumble dryers are a no-go. It would end up damaging the cotton fibres when you can simply get the same result by air-drying it on a large wooden hanger in a well-ventilated room and away from direct sunlight. The job should be done in a matter of hours

IRONING

Thanks to the two-ply twist, you only need to give your Classic Shirt a quick blast on low heat (max 110˚C) when still a little damp to the touch will do the job.

Getting rid of those pit stains

White shirts will tend to get yellowy patches over time, whether it’s due to deodorant components or sweat, you still want to get the washed out: Here are. few tips to do so:

Option 1 (light stains): rub the area with some good old natural soap. Simple as.

Option 2 (bigger stains): soak your shirt in a bowl of lukewarm water with 2 tablespoons of baking soda for a few hours, before you put it in the wash.

Option 3 (stubborn stains): add some washing soda crystals into a bowl with 1 litre of water. Soak your shirt in the mix for a few minutes before rinsing it with tap water.

As a rule, tend to avoid aluminium-based deodorants as they are usually the culprit for these stains (on top of the health hazard they represent).

Thanks !
