Basic Care 101
Machine wash cold with like colors; line dry. To maintain the life of your garments, wash them as infrequently as possible; spot cleaning and air drying will do the trick. Most clothing, including GRAMMAR white shirts, can be washed cold by machine or by hand. Cold water is gentler on fabric and conserves energy.
Stains: Rinse & Pre-Treat
When you do wash, be sure to pre-treat discoloration with a stain remover. Dish soap or regular laundry detergent will work in a pinch. Consistent pre-treatment is the best solution for avoiding armpit stains over the long term. More severe stains should be rinsed immediately and pre-treated before washing.
Please, No Dry Cleaning
Contrary to popular belief, dry cleaning is actually more damaging to clothes than washing. In addition to being expensive and time consuming, dry cleaning involves harsh chemicals that are harmful to your clothing, your health, and the environment.
Whitening & Brightening
For extreme whitening power, opt for a non-chlorine bleach. There are many oxygen-based bleach options available; natural solutions include adding white vinegar or borax to your wash and drying laundry in the sun.
To eliminate wrinkles, ironing is always the best for a crisp look. However, a hand-steamer will work almost as well. You can fluff your shirt in the dryer with some wool dryer balls for a couple of minutes to achieve a more casual look. We avoid wrinkle-free and non-iron fabrics because they are often treated with formaldehyde.
