Laundering



Laundering care instructions for each of the fabrics that we offer.

Banjo, Premier, Economy Non-FR, and Poly Satin:

  • Never expose fabric to heat above 140°F during any portion of washing, drying, or ironing.
  • Excessive heat can shrink the fabric significantly and/or shock the fabric into retaining permanent wrinkles.
  • Machine wash like colors only, in cold water using a gentle cycle.
  • If detergent is used, add only a mild liquid detergent to the water before putting the fabric in the machine.
  • Do not apply a concentrated detergent directly on the fabric, as this may alter the color.
  • Never use soap, bleach, or fabric softeners.
  • May be dried in a conventional dryer using an air only setting.
  • If ironing is needed, use only a cool setting.


10.2 oz. Velour, 15.5 oz. Velour, and 24.5 oz. Velour:

  • Never expose fabric to heat above 140°F during any portion of washing, drying, or ironing.
  • Excessive heat can shrink the fabric significantly and/or shock the fabric into retaining permanent wrinkles.
  • Machine wash like colors only, in cold water using a gentle cycle.
  • If detergent is used, add only a mild, non-chloride detergent, adding it to the water before putting the fabric in the machine.
  • Do not apply a concentrated detergent directly on the fabric, as this may alter the color.
  • Never use soap, bleach, or fabric softeners.
  • May be dried in a conventional dryer using a low heat setting.
  • Do not dry clean. Do not iron.


Sheer Voile:

  • Machine wash cool on a Delicate / Gentle cycle.
  • If needed, use only a gentle detergent, preferably one designed for delicate fabrics.
  • Tumble dry on low heat, using a Delicate / Gentle cycle if available.
  • If there is not Delicate / Gentle cycle for drying, you can also hang to dry (not in direct sunlight).
  • For ironing, use low heat and light steam. It is always suggested to test on an inconspicuous area first.


Commando:

  • Commando drape is NOT machine washable.
  • Washing Commando fabric will ruin the nap (fuzzy felt/suede side) and will wash out the topically applied FR treatment.
  • This fabric should never be washed or spot treated with any liquid or detergent.
  • Clean lightly using a soft brush only, when needed.


Flame Retardant Notes To Consider When Laundering:

  • Premier, Sheer Voile, and all Velours are IFR. These fabrics will retain their FR characteristics no matter how many times they are washed.
  • Banjo fabric will either be IFR or DFR depending on the source used, and either one will retain its flame retardant characteristics for at least 25 washes.
  • Poly Satin is topically treated (FR), and will retain flame retardancy for up to 5 washes.
  • Commando is topically treated (FR), but should never be washed. Washing Commando will wash out the FR treatment.
  • Economy Non-FR drapes are NOT flame retardant.
