Care guide

Uniforms are often worn day in day out and are subjected to high wear and tear. Paying a bit of extra attention to how you care for your garments will help make your uniform last longer and look better.

Fasten all buttons and zips and turn garment inside out when washing.

Wash garment in cold water with a mild detergent on a short, gentle cycle.

Do not tumble dry as heat can cause fabric shrinkage.

Do not soak as it can cause fabric deterioration.

Do not bleach as it can cause fading or discolouration.

Wash garment in cold water with a mild detergent on a short, gentle cycle.

Dry in shade without delay to avoid fading and creasing.

Cool to warm iron on reverse side if required.
Excessive heat can damage fabrics.

Hot iron:

Avoid using a hot iron as it can permanently burn fabrics, particularly synthetic fabrics like Polyester. Make sure your iron is on the correct setting before ironing.

Add vinegar:

Add a good splash of plain white vinegar to every wash. It will make colours look brighter and remove unpleasant odours. It also helps keep your washing machine free of limescale.


Avoid bleach and detergents with activated enzymes. They can cause discolouring and cause the fabric to deteriorate over time.


When drying knitwear it’s best to lay the garment flat on a towel in the shade. Hanging wet knitwear on a line or a hanger can make the garment stretch.

Tumble drying:

We do not recommend using tumble dryers. The heat from tumble drying can make fabrics shrink and warp. This is especially important for synthetic fabrics like polyester.


Attend to stains immediately before they dry out. Stain removers can be effective, but always test it first on a hidden part of the garment.
