Glossary

To ensure your Finden+Hales garments have a long and happy life, we recommend that you carefully follow the care instructions and recommendations to get the best performance and appearance wash after wash.

 

  • Wash similar colours together and always wash whites or paler colours separately from darker colours.
  • Use an appropriate detergent. Colour liquids should be used for brightly coloured, or darker garments.
  • Wash the garment inside out to help maintain the surface appearance.
  • For best results, gently re-shape cotton garments when damp.
  • Dry away from direct sunlight, which can discolour the garment.
  • Do not use fabric detergent with polyester Coolplus® fabrics.
  • If printed, do not iron over print.
