Uniform Care – Marching Band
UNIFORM WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
The new uniforms are machine washable. Do Not Dry Clean.
Close all Velcro where possible. Make sure collar is not ‘hooked’. Wash in Cold water in a Small load or alone.
Dry on cool setting or hang dry
That’s all. They don’t need to be inside out and nothing needs to be folded in any special way. Very simple.
UNIFORM STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS
Do NOT store shoes in the garment bag!
Fold pants starting at the bottom along the creases (so the seams are together). Hang flat on the hanger.
Jacket should be hung so the bow of the hanger is along back zipper.
Wash and return cleaned uniforms by two school days after an event.
GUARD COSTUME WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
These instructions are for the color guard parade/football game uniforms. When the show uniforms come in, there may be different instructions.
- Wash in machine on gentle/delicate cycle. Lay flat or drape over chair to dry.
- Hand wash with Woolite…do NOT wring out…lay flat on a towel and roll the towel to get water out. Then lay flat to dry.
Whichever option you use, do NOT put in the dryer.
