Here are some tips you can follow to get the longest life out of your garment.
Washing instructions are printed on a white tag inside our garments. Following our garment instructions will help make sure that your garment has a long, interesting life.
In general, washing your Signature Pants in cold or warm water with mild powder laundry soap (non-toxic, biodegradable types preferred) and tumbling dry on low are the best ways to clean ANA MARIA KIM products. Generally, machine wash in cold water and air dry help protect the fibers and retain the shape of your garment.
Remember to wash the garment inside out as to protect the fabric from damaging itself. The friction of cloth rubbing in the washer and/or dryer will increase the wear of the cloth. By turning it inside out, the wear will occur on the inside or the garment where it is not noticeable. For fabrics prone to pilling, the pills will accumulate on the inside instead of the outside. For bright colored garments, turning clothes inside out will help prevent the brightly colored areas from fading because of direct exposure to detergent and water.
It also is thought to help reduce the chance of buttons, zippers or other items on the clothing snagging on or rubbing against other clothes or the washing machine.

To get grease out of a garment, dampen the stain and rub in dishwashing detergent. Then wash the garment in warm water with plenty of mild powder laundry soap. If the stain persists, sponge it with a safe cleaning fluid or mineral spirits; you can find both at your local grocery store.
To get gum or sap out of a garment, first freeze the sap with some ice, then use a dull butter knife to scrape off as much as you can. Next, soak the garment in a water/white-vinegar solution, and throw it into the laundry with warm water and detergent.
Like most synthetics, our shells, fleece, scuba and neoprene fabrics will melt or burn if exposed to flame or direct heat. They are not flame resistant; do not use them near ANY direct source of heat or flame.
