At the House of Mausio all our garments are hand printed by Pacific men and women who have placed their heart and souls into their work by providing customized pieces that are unique for each client and in order to keep these prints  looking vibrant as new, customers are advised to follow these washing  instructions to ensure they do not damage their garments  or  the prints that have been carefully designed on our products. 

Home Laundry Care:

Hand Printed garments  have a print that can last for years, since the ink becomes a part of the garment, not just imprinted on them. However, it is recommended that you treat your  printed garments with care to ensure the print quality:

  • Always wash your garments inside-out with a mild detergent.

  • For the first 2 washes, wash by hand in cold water

  • Use low temperature wash cycle program only (we recommend 90 degrees Fahrenheit maximum)

  • If possible, avoid drying your printed garment in a dryer, as this type of drying can damage the print.  Instead, air dry the garment to retain the imprinting.

  • Iron your printed garments inside-out.  This helps maintain the structural integrity of the imprint.

  • When washing light colored garments, the imprint may fade a little. When washing garments on high temperature (and yes, 105 degrees Fahrenheit is too hot), the possibility of imprint/garment fading increases.

 

Ironing Your Printed Garments:

  • Iron your printed garments inside-out.  This helps maintain the structural integrity of the imprint.

  • To help extend the life of the garment, try ironing your garment between two pieces of cloth.

  • It is not recommended to apply moisture or steam to your printed garment prior to ironing.

 

Dry Cleaning:

  • Hand printed garments may be dry cleaned, however, please exercise extreme caution when dry cleaning.  Special care must be taken when dark shades are dry cleaned and avoid using pre-spotting agents.
