Finishing notes from the manufacturer:
Turn garments inside out. Pre-press. Wash in water at 25-30 degrees C with non-ionic detergent to remove spinning oils. Then wash in water at 25-30 degrees C with softener for 2-3 minutes. Spin dry at 80 cycles for 3-5 minutes. Tumble dry at low temperature. Garments should be slightly wet when removed from the tumbler. Press with small amount of steam. It is possible to dry clean.
If you are going to make stripe or patterned garments, make fully finished swatch to confirm colorfastness.
