How to wash silver fiber fabric?
1) Softly wash by hand, with neutral detergent such as TexCare (Don’t use any strongly alkaline detergent such as washing powder).**
2) Water temperature below 40˚C.
3) No bleach, do not use detergent with bleach ingredients.
4) Hang dry. Do not wring, do not hang in blazing sun for a long time, and pick up promptly from the water to dry.
5) Do not dry clean.
** Poor water quality will damage Silver. In particular Sulphur, high Fluoride, and low pH will react strongly with Silver and destroy conductivity and shielding performance.
Test your tap water on a small fabric swatch before washing your fabric or garment:
1- soak a small fabric swatch in tap water for 1 hour.
2- 2- look for color change in the water or swatch, especially blackening.
3- 3- air dry the swatch and check for conductivity (by touching an Ohm meter to 2 points on the fabric)
4- If color change or loss of conductivity occurs, DO NOT use tap water to wash/rinse your fabric, use distilled or deionized, reverse osmosis water.
