Care Instructions

Keeping your CSD dapper and clean is easy!

Bow Ties

Bow ties should be snapped off the shirts for washing.  Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low. 

To get best shape:  Remove knot from tie prior to washing and drying.  The knot can be washed and dried if needed, but put in a garment bag so it doesn't get lost. 

Take care to avoid snaps when ironing - they melt!

Downloadable handy instructions for re-folding a bowtie.  You can print out this paper on a 4x6 photo sheet and use it as a guide to fold them.

Quick reshape tip: Try a hair straightener!

Cardisuits 

100% Cotton, unless otherwise noted. 

Machine wash cold, with like colors.  Tumble dry low or line dry. Only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Iron when needed. Avoid ironing plastic snaps, as they will melt.

Personalized or other vinyl decoration?  Turn garment inside out before washing. Do not iron over decoration, but you can iron the reverse side.

Tip: We recommend trying the cardisuit on baby prior to washing.  Since these are 100% cotton, some shrinkage is expected.  Be sure to wash color and line dry if it's a snug fit.  Wash warm and dry low if you want it to fit a little snugger.

Classic Pants

100% Cotton.

Machine wash cold, with like colors.  Tumble dry low. Only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Iron when needed.

Vinyl knee pacthes added?  Turn garment inside out before washing. Do not iron over the patches, but you can iron the reverse side.

Printed Leggings/Joggers/Shorts

Fabric content varies, but includes at least 3% spandex. 

Many of the patterned fabrics are digitally printed and require extra care.  

Machine wash cold, inside out.  Hang dry / no dryer.  No bleach. 

Tip: If the pattern has a lot of dark or bright colors on a white background, Shout Color Catchersheets do a great job at keeping whites bright and the colors in place.

Tip: If you choose to iron the seams and cuffs, use a press cloth to protect the fabric. 

Stain removal tips for these delicate fabrics:  Treat knees and stains with Oxyclean or Shout as needed. An extra-long soaking cycle is great if they are heavily soiled - but be sure to turn inside out. 

Suspender Shirts/Onesies

Remove tie from shirt and follow separate tie instructions.

Machine wash suspender top with like colors - cold or warm water, low or medium dryer.  No special treatment is needed. 

You can spot treat stains, use soak cycles, and even use a bleach pen on white parts.

You can iron the shirts, but be careful to avoid the d-rings and plastic snaps (they melt!)

Knot Hats

100% Cotton, unless otherwise noted.

Untie knot before washing.

Machine wash cold, with like colors.  Tumble dry low or hang dry. Only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Iron when needed.
