Cotton is a fabric that can be easily laundered. It can also be machine washed and tumble dried at high temperature. Any good detergent maybe used to wash cotton. Chlorine bleach also can be used safely on white cotton. For dyed colored cottons, use color safe bleach.
Cotton can be ironed with a hot iron along with a misting of water to press out fine creases.
Please note, for garment care of custom dress shirts and custom collared blouses from NELSON WADE, we recommend that they are professional laundered without starch at your local dry cleaner.
Why do we suggest not to use starch?
Starching shirts is common and the basic function of starch is to stiffen the dress shirt or collared blouse. However, starch can leave very small crystals in the cotton fiber, and along with our perspiration that has salt in it, you will see the cotton garment wear the out faster than a dress shirt or collared blouse that has not been starched.
So the choice is then appearance versus longer life for your custom dress shirt or collared blouse.
