So, grab your favorite hoodie and a cup of tea, and let’s dive into the world of hoodie maintenance.

Separation Anxiety? Separate your Hoodies

Before you even think about doing the laundry, separate your custom printed hoodies from your jeans, zippers, and other abrasive clothing items. Hoodies, especially those with vinyl prints, can be sensitive, and friction can lead to unwanted wear and tear.

The Art of Gentle Machine Washing

When it’s laundry day, opt for a gentle cycle on your washing machine. Turn your hoodie inside out to protect the print, and use cold water. Hot water can cause fading and might not be kind to your vibrant prints.

The Detergent Dilemma

For custom printed hoodies, it’s best to stick with a mild, liquid detergent. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can harm the print and the fabric. Trust us; your hoodie prefers a gentler approach.

Easy on the Agitation

Minimise agitation by washing your hoodie with similar items. An overload can lead to excessive friction and pilling, which nobody wants. Keep it cosy and cuddle your hoodie.

To Dry or Not to Dry

Now, drying is where the real hoodie heroes shine. Hang your hoodie to air dry. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can bleach the colors. If you’re in a rush, use low heat in the dryer, and remove your hoodie as soon as it’s dry.

Wrinkle-free Wrangling

A hoodie can look wrinkled after washing, but don’t worry! Simply give it a gentle shake and hang it neatly. The wrinkles will usually ease themselves out.

The Iron Situation

Only iron your hoodie if you must, but do it inside out and with a clean cloth on top of the print. Keep the iron on low heat to prevent damage. Hoodies appreciate a gentle touch!

Storage Secrets

Store your hoodie flat or folded neatly. Avoid hanging it, as it can stretch the fabric and cause deformation. And if you’re not wearing it for a while, don’t forget to give it some love and air it out occasionally.


Caring for your custom printed hoodies is all about showing them the TLC they deserve. By following these simple steps, you can keep your hoodies looking fresh, vibrant, and fabulous. Remember, a happy hoodie is a comfy, stylish hoodie, and that’s precisely what we aim for at Hoodies Express.

So, show your hoodies some love, and they’ll be there to keep you warm and stylish for a long, long time. Happy hoodie adventures, fellow hoodie enthusiasts!
