Taking proper care of your garment will ensure they look great for longer. Most BIZ CORPORATES styles are easy care,however please always refer to your garment care label for specific washing instructions.
- \\ Exposing garments to high temperatures is not recommended.
- \\ Tumble-drying and extended exposure to direct sunlight can alter the performance of fabrics.
- \\ Never experiment with tough stains - take stained garments for professional cleaning.
- \\ Use a natural detergent for delicate fabrics.
- \\ Dissolve detergents thoroughly and distribute evenly for best wash results.
- \\ Drying coloured items in direct sunlight is not recommended.
- \\ Constructed tailored garments should always only be dry cleaned.
Always empty pockets, unfasten buttons, and lift the collar before washing. Do not overload the washing machine, or wash at a very high temperature.
The use of lukewarm water is reccommended. Allow soap or detergent to totally dissolve before adding the garment. Do not rub - gently squeeze only, and rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Some garments tend to lose their shape in the wash – if this happens, reshape and lay flat to dry. Prevent long exposure to direct sunlight or heaving winds especially if your garments are coloured. Wash and dry inside out to avoid colour fading. Drying indoors has many benefits, just ensure the area is well ventilated. Fold heavy garments to minimise losing their shape.
Always follow ironing instructions on the care label. See symbol clarification for more information. Check the capability of your iron as some older irons do not have good temperature regulation.
Wool is a breatheable, thermal material with some natural moisture-absorbing properties. It performs well when mixed with Polyester to form a strong, durable and comfortable fabric. Althought it responds well to steam, it will shrink if washed at a high temperature and can lose shape if hung to dry. Fabric may pill once during the garment’s life, but will return to normal function.
Cotton is a fresh and comfortable material that breathes well, and responds well to warm/hot iron. It may have minimal shrinkage if washed in hot water. It has some natural crease, and subject to fade if left in direct sunlight for too long.
Polyester is usually a crease resistant fibre that adds stability when mixed with other fibres. It is also resistant to fading. Polyester fibre on its own can be sensitive to heat and must be washed in cool water and ironed at a low temperature - please check your iron setting as a hot iron on this fabric will cause it to shine and, in a worst case, scorch.
