Football Uniforms Care:
For best results wash uniforms immediately after each use.
Please inspect for normal wear and tear so repairs can be made prior to washing to prevent further damage. Do not allow uniforms to lie on itself or in a pile when wet because perspiration can cause fading or color bleeding.
Wash uniforms in cold water with mild detergent as soon as possible after each use, before stains can set. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Do not dry clean. Do not iron
Since uniforms are new, we ask you hang to dry to be on safe side as excessive heat can cause garment shrinkage, discoloration, degradation and cracking of lettering.
