Care
A product from Stenströms will be a pleasure to wear for many years to come if you treat it with care and follow the advice on the garment label.

These are our general recommendations

Cotton
A cotton shirt can be washed at 40°C-60°C, but always follow the advice on the garment label. We recommend that you wash it inside-out and in a semi-filled machine, with similar garments, so that no lint will adhere to your shirt. Always launder with similar colours, or separately if the fabric is in a dark colour or printed. Avoid centrifuging. Allow to drip dry on a coat hanger.

Linen
A linen shirt can be washed at 40°C-60°C, but always follow the advice on the garment label. We recommend that you wash it inside-out and in a semi-filled machine. Always launder with similar colours, or separately if the fabric is in a dark coloured. Avoid centrifuging. Allow to drip dry on a coat hanger.

Silk
Silk products can either be hand-washed in lukewarm water or machine-washed using the silk or wool program. Use liquid laundry detergent especially suited for silk, without enzymes. If machine-washed, use a washing bag. Avoid soaking the garment and do not twist or rub. Rinse thoroughly and use a short spin cycle. Allow to drip dry on a coat hanger. Avoid drying in sunlight or any heated place.

Wool
A good airing can often suffice to freshen the garment, but if necessary, wool can either be hand-washed in lukewarm water or machine-washed using the wool program. Use laundry detergent especially suited for wool. Avoid soaking the garment to soak and do not twist or rub. Use a short, gentle spin cycle. Gently remove excess water with a terry towel and lay garment flat to dry. Avoid drying in sunlight or any heated place.

Ironing
The best result is achieved if the garment is ironed before completely dry. 100%-cotton shirts can be ironed at full heat, but avoid ironing buttons at collar, placket and cuffs. Never starch a Stenströms shirt, not even with spray starch, as starch will make the finest fabrics feel like paper.
 
Steaming
Creases may also be removed using a steamer, which is also a good way to freshen the garment quickly. All of Stenströms fabrics can be steamed provided you use the correct temperature setting, as indicated on the garment label. Read the instructions on your steamer before using it and maintain the right distance between the garment and steamer.
 
Stains
The sooner you treat a stain, the easier it is to remove. Water is often enough, but if you need to use stain remover, make sure it is suitable for the fabric you intend to use it for. Work your way from edge to centre and be aware that a stain should be dissolved, not rubbed off.
