- Wash all coloureds separately, as dyes can easily run onto other garments
- Do not soak
- Do not drip dry as this can also result in dye transfer
- Gently wring or spin dry first, or roll in a towel to remove excess water before hanging to dry
Trimmings on garments can affect how they are washed or which product is used. For example, if a garment has a leather collar the care label may say 'Dry Clean Only' even if the rest of the garment is washable.
