Stain Guide for Washable Fabrics

DINGINESS, YELLOWING & GRAYING

Always read and follow the care instructions and any warnings on the garment label. And, follow the General Rules for washable fabric stain removal.

  • Wash with a permanent press cycle in hot water, use a cool-down rinse on permanent press and use one cup of water conditioner instead of detergent.
  • If the discoloration remains, either repeat this procedure or wash with the correct amount of detergent and either all-fabric bleach or chlorine bleach, if safe for the fabric. (always check for colorfastness first.)
  • If the fabric is white, consider speciality products available in grocery or drug stores, such as Rit's "Whitener and Brightener" to whiten the fabric.
  • Always separate and wash your whites separate from colors. And, don't put heavily soil garments with lightly soiled items.
  • Also see "Yellowing" in this list.


 


MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.
