As we are now in season for games and competitions, here are some helpful tips with caring for the uniforms your scholar has been issued.
A large part of our budget goes to replacing uniforms. Uniforms are designed to last several years, so please help do your part in caring for these! Thank you!
Under Armour/Eastbay Uniform Care Instructions
DO NOT DRY CLEAN
DO NOT WASH IN HOT WATER
DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH
DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER
DO NOT WASH WHITES AND COLORS TOGETHER
DO NOT OVERLOAD THE WASHING MACHINE
DO NOT MACHINE DRY ON HIGH HEAT
DO NOT LEAVE WET OR DAMP GARMENTS IN YOUR TRAVEL BAG, IN A PILE WITH OTHER CLOTHING, OR IN WASHING MACHINE
*Uniforms should always be laundered immediately after wearing. However, if this is not possible, rinse garments and hang individually on rust-proof hangers. (Moisture may cause color migration of acid dyes so we advise separating wet or damp clothes)
*Belts and any other contrasting color items should be washed separately from the garment.
*We recommend presoaking heavily soiled garments in cold water with a protein release agent. Follow the instructions recommended by the presoak manufacturer. Wash garments immediately following the presoak in a normal wash cycle.
*Wash and rinse all garments in cold water with mild detergent. Remove promptly after wash cycle to avoid color migration.
*For optimum results, hang garments (especially those with spandex) to dry. If you cannot hang dry, machine dry on the lowest setting. Turn jerseys inside out before machine drying. Remove items from dryer immediately upon completion of the cycle. (Excessive heat can cause fabric shrinkage, discoloration, and cracking and peeling of vinyl plastisol lettering inks.)
*Make sure uniforms are completely dry before storing. Store in a dry area to prevent mildew. Protect them from sunlight and fluorescent light to prevent yellowing.
Uniform Return Date will be after Fall Sports Awards Night
