Garment Care

 

Grooming & Trimming

Despite our garments being of exceptional quality, pilling and bobbling can occur when fibres are loosened due to excessive friction on certain fabrics. A gentle brush usually resolves the issues. However, pilling tests on our garments have always had excellent results.


Stay cool

Shrinkage is commonly caused by overheating in the washing machine or tumble drier particularly on 100% cotton garments. Always follow the washing guideline instructions on the label. Where possible, garments should be washed inside out.


Chemicals are bad news

When caring for your Banner garments, avoid contact with chemicals such as bleaching agents and softeners. Equally avoid contact with perfumes and hairsprays as well similar products.


Controlling shine

Ironing at temperatures that are too high can result in unwanted shine marks on matte fabrics.

A top tip is to remember that man-made fabrics are vulnerable to high heat. Protect your garments by turning the heat down on your iron, turn the garment inside out when ironing or even cover the fabric with a damp towel before ironing.


Testing! Testing!

If you return a Banner garment and wish it to be tested professionally and independently, we will arrange this for you if at all possible. However, if the fault is not found to be due to the manufacturing process you will be liable for the testing charges, which in some circumstances may be substantial.
