At GoFast Racewear, we pride ourselves on producing high-quality apparel with Direct to Garment (DTG) printing. However, maintaining the vibrancy and durability of your DTG printed garments is a shared responsibility. By caring for them correctly, you can ensure they remain as stunning as the day you received them.

Here are some key tips to help you care for your DTG printed garments:

  1. Turn Inside Out Before Washing: This simple step helps protect the printed design during the wash. It reduces the friction the design encounters, which helps to maintain its integrity over time.
  2. Cold Wash is Best: Washing your garments in cold water is not only better for the environment but also gentler on your clothes. High temperatures can degrade the print and the fabric itself, so we recommend sticking to a cold wash cycle.
  3. Avoid Harsh Detergents and Bleach: These can be overly harsh and potentially damage the print over time. Opt for mild detergents and skip the bleach to extend the life of your garment.
  4. Don’t Dry Clean: The chemicals used in dry cleaning can be too harsh for the printed design and may cause it to fade or degrade prematurely.
  5. Tumble Dry Low or Air Dry: High heat can cause the print to crack or peel, so avoid placing the garment in a hot dryer. Instead, tumble dry on a low setting or, better yet, let it air dry naturally. If you do need to use a dryer, remember to turn the garment inside out first.
  6. Iron with Care: If your garment needs ironing, avoid ironing directly on the print. Instead, turn the garment inside out or place a cloth between the iron and the design.

Caring for your DTG printed garments properly helps preserve the design’s vibrancy and ensures you can enjoy wearing them for a long time. Remember, your racewear is more than just apparel; it’s a statement of support for your favorite racers, a memory, and a conversation starter. Let’s keep them looking their best!
