Garment Care

All of the garments we sell are made using high quality materials under strict quality control conditions. It should be noted that most fabrics discolour due to staining by substances such as mud and grass which may not be entirely removed by washing.
We recommend removing as much mud from the garment as possible before soaking/washing Follow detergent manufacturers' instructions particularly with powders/liquids designed for heavy stains. Avoid products containing chlorine bleach that may damage fabrics, trims and decoratives.
Soaking garments in water and detergent as soon as possible can reduce discolouration. Use at least an equal amount of water by volume to that of the garments being soaked/washed. Make sure all parts are fully immersed. Pale kits such as White, Yellow, Sky and Tangerine may require more attention and the use of Prewash Soakers will assist in the removal of stains.
Do not overfill the washing machine with garments since if the ratio of water to garments is too small, dirt can easily be re-deposited. This can stain all the garments grey.
We do not recommend fabric conditioners on jerseys and shorts which may cause a build up of film on fibres. This can prevent the washing process from penetrating filaments and dislodging dirt. However, socks will benefit from fabric conditioners and softeners.
We or the manufacturer will not accept liability for discolouration or damage to garments which is attributable to staining caused by elements foreign to the materials used in manufacture.
