PRINTED APPAREL CARE TIPS
Coffers full of gorgeous Flying Monkey apparel can be tough. We have some tips and tricks to keep your printed apparel in top notch condition (the fast way)
1) Preserve the quality of your Flying Monkey graphic T-shirt. You love your shirts, so show them your love. Here are some helpful washing instructions to keep that love strong!
- Wash your T-shirt inside out to help preserve its vibrant graphic art
- Machine wash on a gentle cycle in cold water to prevent shrinkage
- If you really want your shirt to shrink a bit after losing those ten pounds, wash it in warm water
- Machine drying is not recommended. Air dry your tee so it won’t fade!
2) Alright, we know you don't have this issue, but pass it along to someone you won't offend. Yellow armpit stains are what we're beating around the bush about & OxyClean is your answer. A budget friendly alternative to job specific products & works 100%. And a huge tip, avoid antiperspirants with aluminum. Aluminum is toxic to the skin, but it also causes those yellow stains.
3) Did you accidentally shrink your T-shirt? Now you can unshrink it. Soak shrunken T-shirts in a mixture of hot water and hair conditioner for five minutes and then stretch it back to its right size.
4) Who hangs up or folds t-shirts? I wouldn't know. Wrinkles are easy to get out if you know the right trick. Lightly spray/mist a T-shirt with water to get rid of wrinkles. This can also be done by hanging your T-shirt on your shower rod or door while you take a hot shower.
We hope these tips, tricks & hacks help you reach a level of expertise, your peers may find a lack of dingy yellow-stained armpits absolutely irresistible, and your backside much, much less chilly. Life thinks it can just throw T-shirts at you and it will disrupt your daily life with tedious inconveniences!? Ha! No more. We’ve got it on lock.
