fabric care

WASHING
Blue Fish is made with natural fibers – organically grown cotton jersey, hemp, linen, silk, cotton denim, cotton stretch and tencel/rayon blends. We are always searching for innovative earth friendly fabrics to create our designs, so we will continue to add new natural fibers to our ever changing collections.
When laundering with traditional detergents, we prefer to use a mild liquid soap.
Because our fabrics are made without pesticides, we prefer to use an organic laundry soap available at any health food stores. Laundering your printed pieces inside out will help to preserve your prints and keep your Blue Fish looking like new much longer.

Please do not use a liquid soap that may contain bleaching agents or color enhancers as this could affect the color of your piece. We have also found powdered soaps to be abrasive and will therefore cause more fabric fade.

DRYING
Most of the fabrics and styles in our collections may be dried on a low or tumble dry setting in the clothes dryer for about 15 to 20 minutes and then hung or laid flat to finish drying.
All garments are preshrunk.
If you hang your pieces outside to dry please be sure to dry them in the shade to avoid fading from the sun. We have found that some time in the dryer enhances the softness of the pieces and will also eliminate the need to iron for most of us.

STEAMING
When necessary, we prefer to steam our styles to remove wrinkles. Steaming the garments gives a softer appearance. Ironing gives the styles a crisper look.

IRONING
If you choose to iron your pieces, we recommend that you iron inside out on a low temperature setting.

BUTTONS
We recommend wrapping our artisan made ceramic buttons in aluminum foil before washing and drying to prevent breakage.
