An Essential Guide To Caring For Your Child’s Primary School Wear

We would prefer our children's school uniforms last as long as possible. Unfortunately, stains such as grass, food and ink on children's clothes are common. For youngsters, playing and getting dirty is a crucial part of having fun, exploring and learning about the world around them. 

How To Wash Primary School Wear Properly

  • Tumble-drying: Avoid shrinkage by tumble-drying school uniforms on the lowest heat and the shortest cycle possible. When taking school uniforms out of the dryer, it's ideal to do so while they're still damp to prevent them from getting too creased.
  • Use a colour-specific detergent: If you want your colours to last as long as possible, use a detergent designed for that purpose.
  • Read the labels: Before washing an item of clothing or using a stain remover, be sure you have read the instructions on the care label. Before using a new product on the entire garment, try it out on a small, hidden section.
  • Using a washing machine: Blazers, skirts, trousers and jumpers can be machine-washed, but you should use cold water and the delicate cycle for the best results. In this way, they can be preserved and not lose their original colour or look worn after being washed many times.

Useful Tips For Maintaining Primary School Wear  

  • Make sure your kid's school uniform buttons are working properly. If you see that a button isn't staying put, give it a few more stitches, so it doesn't come undone.
  • Dry clean blazers and coats on a semiannual basis. There is no doubt that this will increase the longevity of those things.
  • Whenever possible, wear colourful socks, tights or shirts instead of white ones. Your whites will fade no matter how carefully you treat them.
  • Before washing, soak any stains in water. Washing-up liquid is a go-to stain remover.

Label Everything

Labelling all of their school uniform items, from outerwear like coats and hats to clothing like pants, skirts, shirts and cardigans, as well as their sports clothing, is a must. There will always be mix-ups because everyone wears the same uniform. If you label your school uniform items, you have a fighting chance of getting them back if they go missing.

Dry Cleaning 

Dry cleaning is time-saving and ensures that clothes are cleaned professionally without any damage. Can’t make it to the dry cleaners in time, or don’t have one in your area? Home dry cleaning kits are available, making cleaning blazers and other items convenient.
