Wash your apron before using it for the first time.
The first few times you should wash it by itself to avoid the dye bleeding onto your other clothes.
Why do I need to wash before using the apron?
We recommend washing before using it for the first time because they are made of raw fabrics - they didn’t go through any chemical or mechanical wash. As a result, some of their dye can bleed onto the clothes you wear underneath. Besides that, they get softer after the first wash, so it feels more comfortable.
Tip: to test if the dye will bleed onto your clothes, just rub the fabric into some white rag. If nothing happens, then you might not need to wash it before using it for the first time.
Removing stains from your apron:
Not all the stains can get off your apron, but for the most common ones you can try using this:
Warm Salt Water - for fresh stains, still not dry (like fresh tomato sauce, wine or coffee):
- Mix about 1tbs of salt in ½ cup of water (increase proportionally)
- Soak stained fabric in the salt water for around 3 min
- Rub the fabric against itself under cold water
Alcohol or Vinegar - for dry stains (like ink)
- Dab rubbing alcohol onto the stain
- Wait some minutes so the alcohol can penetrate the fabric and react with the stain
- Dry the stain using white paper towels or a cloth that has been dampened in either alcohol or water
