Care instructions / Marty ® care guide, our sweatshirt material

Are you wondering how to wash yourMarty®and take care of it?

After several weeks of testing solutions in our studio, the Patine team presents our maintenance tips to make it last!

Our advice for properly washing your sweatshirt

First tip. : space out the washes. A sweatshirt is rarely worn next to the skin, so it does not need to be washed after each wear (which preserves its fibers, softness and colors).

You can air it out once worn and wait a few more days before washing it. It's cowboy spirit, and it's also synonymous with saving energy and water #bravovous.

For your laundry, choose an Ecocert and/or Ecolabel certified product. Remember to checkthe hardness of the water in your municipality(its concentration of calcium and magnesium) to properly dose your maintenance products and take care of your machine. In fact, the harder the water, the more it scales the machines, which reduces their efficiency.

Wash inside out (required for sweatshirts with printed design) at 30°, ideal program to save energy but also so that the fibers last longer, do not weaken and do not lose their colors! To ensure a long lifespan for the pretty colors of yourMarty®, we advise you not to mix them and to do laundry by color (especially for reds and pinks to prevent them from losing their intensity). Do not use artificial softeners or bleaches - and therefore avoid washing powders which contain them and which may affect the color of the jersey. Ideally, if yourMarty®is dark in color, it is a detergent for dark textiles to preserve the color.

For theMarty®light, it is important not to mix them with dark textiles (or even too many colors), they risk turning gray over time. Program a light spin (no need to spin your Marty at 1800 revolutions!). Avoid leaving your Marty lying around in a damp ball in the machine once washed, otherwise it will get wrinkles. It is better to hang it out straight away or let it rest on a chair before you can hang it out.

Our advice for drying and ironing your sweatshirt

↳ Avoid the dryer which breaks the fiber of clothes and which consumes a lot of energy. Opt for drying in the open air on a dryer or a hanger which also prevents it from getting wrinkles and smoothes it naturally.

↳ YourMarty®can be ironed with a gentle iron or not at all (especially if you have dried it well!). If it has a nice print, iron it on the reverse side so as not to damage it. You can also favor the use of a steam generator.

Our advice for keeping a sweatshirt soft:

To keep your sweatshirt soft, we strongly advise you to wash it with white vinegar instead of fabric softener when you put it in the machine. It is both a softener and a natural anti-limescale agent (and the less scale your machine has, the less rough your laundry is). You can also soak it in a bath of lukewarm water with a small glass of white vinegar before putting it in the washing machine.

Our advice in case of pilling:

OURMarty®does not pill naturally and to preserve its surface and avoid friction, wash it inside out. If you wear peeling wool or acrylic tops underneath, or if you often wear it under other clothes, it may happen that some pilling appears on your sweatshirt or that it catches fibers of other colors. In this case we recommend either tweezers or a lint shaver which still saves a lot of time!

Our advice in case of stains

To treat a stain during washing, apply Marseille soap to the stain to form a small deposit a few minutes before turning your sweatshirt over and putting it in the drum (a program at 30° is also sufficient to remove stains). Be careful to choose a real Marseille soap with more than 72% vegetable oil to ensure its effectiveness.

You can also use it to remove stains without using a machine, like baking soda, but we find that it is a little more difficult to rinse off the stains.Marty®clear and you often have to try twice to avoid any slightly yellowish remains of dry soap.

Without machine wash. We tested for you in the Patine Studio a natural stain remover that rinses very easily to act on a stain locally: baking soda. We did the test with stains of tomato sauce, foundation, lipstick, bic pen and coffee.

Mix a few teaspoons of baking soda (depending on the size of the stain) with a splash of water. The whole thing should form a sort of somewhat solid paste. If there is too much water and it doesn't mix very well, don't hesitate to add a little baking soda. You can also add a little of your detergent which helps bind the mixture. Spread the mixture directly on the stains so as to cover them completely.

Leave it on for 20-30 minutes then gently scrub the stained areas with a clothes brush or an old toothbrush. Rinse with clean water then let air dry.


Our advice for keeping the color of your sweatshirt

For our colors, we use GOTS certified dyes, and therefore no polluting fixatives, which means that they will move but slowly and nicely! The clothes themselves are washed during the dyeing process, including a final wash to remove excess color and prevent it from bleeding into your home.

However, we cannot guarantee that there will be 0% excess the first time you wash your garment (especially for pink and red which are quite volatile colors, this is true for all brands).

So it's always good to soak your sweatshirtMarty®in white vinegar before the first wash (a glass for a basin of water and leave to soak for a few hours) so as to set the color well. You can then put it in the machine for regular washing. Cotton is a fiber that has a great affinity with water and everything it contains, so it is necessary to always wash yourMarty®with similar colors to avoid bleeding or graying.
