Guidelines for ensuring our Nandoca's threads are always looking their best.
Dishwashing liquid is really good for oil stains as its made to cut through grease.
For the denim aprons, try scrubbing by hand in dishwashing liquid and warm water or using an old toothbrush to scrub directly on the stains if it’s a tough stain.
You could also use bi carb to cover the stain and scrub with an old toothbrush, as this helps to absorb the grease. Dust off and repeat this bi carb step until the oil stain looks like it is fading. Then further scrubbing or hand washing in dishwashing liquid helps to cut through.
After applying above methods it’s important to do a wash in the machine on a higher temp. We would recommend no higher than 60 degrees as this denim is prone to shrink at high washing temperatures.
The Tees are a more delicate weave and looser structure to a denim, it is best to start with soaking and hand washing in dishwashing liquid and see how they go from there. If the stain persists they may need to repeat this process 2 or 3 times before they see a result. Scrubbing the knit can cause damage to the surface if done too heavily and aggressively. If you hand wash they should be able to apply enough pressure without causing the same abrasion and damage to the fabric that scrubbing with an old toothbrush heavily could cause.
Please also recommend scrubbing on the reverse side where possible to avoid causing any abrasion to the front surface. This is relevant to the denim also.
