Care Recommendations for Tie Dye Tees

Tie dye tees come pre-washed and ready-to-wear! But when it does come time for a cleaning, we recommend the following:

  1. We strongly recommend washing your tee separately on its first 1-2 cycles. We also recommend washing on COLD (if your washer has a “tap cold” setting, that works best), or hand-washing in cold water with mild detergent.

  2. After the first 1-2 wash cycles, it is unlikely that your shirt will ever bleed again. We still recommend washing with like-colors to prolong the vibrance of your shirt.

While all our tie-dyes were made with professional-grade dyes and fixatives, it’s important to understand that tie dye is likely to fade or change over time. We hope you will view this as a natural part of the lifecycle of your garment.
