The new uniforms the Midget and Pony teams are wearing this year are called "sublimation" jerseys. We were provided cleaning instructions from the company so they last as long as possible.
If you have any questions, please see Ronnie Freeman.
Uniforms should be washed immediately after each use if possible. Turn garment inside out to help preserve ink printing and twill. Use only cold water for all settings of the washing machine and do not wash with other items, such as towels.
DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH!
DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTNER!
DO NOT DRY CLEAN UNIFORMS!
Heavily soiled garments should be pre-treated. Any of the pre-treating brands found at your grocery store will do just fine as long as it does not contain bleach. For blood stains, soak in cold water before washing. An oxygen based laundry booster can also be used to wash garments. If possible, use a high water level to minimize mechanical action on the uniforms. Do not overload washing machine.
Remove uniforms immediately after washing and HANG DRY all garments.
If you must use the dryer, use the damp dry or air dry setting. The lower the setting on the dryer, the better it is for the garment. A high heat setting can cause garment shrinkage, cracking in the ink printing, wrinkling in the twill, etc. Overloading the dryer can cause uniforms with ink printing to stick together. Remove garments from the dryer IMMEDIATELY when the dryer is finished.
DO NOT IRON!
After cleaning, store in a cool, dry area, protected from direct sunlight and flourescent lighting.
