Geekdom Tees T-shirt Care

In order for you to prolong the life of your custom print, we suggest following the care instructions below, or at least telling them to your Mum/Wife/Partner/Sidekick so they don't fuck your shirt up:


Wash t-shirts inside out

This is the most important process you can do to preserve the life of your t-shirt. Turn the shirt inside out before placing it in the washing machine. Most often, when you take off the t-shirt after wearing, it just ends up inside out anyway, so just leave it that way when it goes in the wash.

Cold machine wash

A cold or warm wash is not a hot wash. Hot water is NOT recommended for most t-shirts. In Australia we have a relatively warm climate, so our tap water is considered warm. Just using the cold wash cycle will be the best to keep the design looking better for longer.

Wash with like colours

Never wash blacks, reds or any dark colours with your white t-shirts. It is best to wash all the similar colours together, as the dye will slowly release out of the t-shirt over time through washing. Wash only whites together. Wash reds together. And wash your darks together.

Do not tumble dry.

This will shrink most t-shirts. Mostly, all styles recommend you do not tumble dry.

Hang out to dry

Just hang it out to dry, leave it inside out until it’s dry. Hang it out immediately, don’t leave it in the washing machine for an extended period of time. If you are hanging outside in the sun, make sure it’s inside out. The sun will bleach clothes and hanging inside out will protect the side that you wear (and the print) from sun damage.

Iron Inside Out

Through this whole process the t- shirt is inside out. Leave it that way when you iron the t-shirt. Most prints should not be ironed on directly as this will damage the print. A medium to hot iron is great for 100% cottons, but, polyester and poly/cotton blends should have a lower temperature.

Do Not Dry Clean

Do not dry clean t-shirts; it’s not the right material.
