General Tips

• Wash garments in cold water (30 degrees centigrade for Europe)
• Be absolutely sure there is no bleach, chlorine bleach, or bleach alternative in your detergent.
• When on the road, using shampoo is a good substitute for detergent.
• Don't hang garments on lamps to dry.
• Do not iron your rowing garments.

JL Unisuits & Technical Shirts

Important: For best results, pre-treat your garment before use.

The fabrics used in your JL custom garment have been chosen for their technical properties and colour brightness. They have been treated for colour fastness but dyes can migrate.

 Follow these instructions carefully to minimize the chances of this occurring. To pre-treat/wash your JL colour-blocked garment:

 • Fill a basin with cold water and a small amount of non-bleach detergent.
• Drop a single garment in and submerge completely.
• Wash it out quickly; do not leave your garment in the water to soak.
• Squeeze it to remove excess water, rinse immediately in fresh water until water runs clear.
• During this process, do not leave your garment in a wet pile.
• Squeeze to remove excess water, and hang to dry.
• Follow these steps at least twice, and then your garment should be ready to join the rest of your cold-wash laundry.
• Hang Dry. Do not use dryer.

 If your garment contains Polypropylene (check the content label) it has the lowest melting temperature of any fibre, so do not place it in the dryer. However, polypropylene also dries the fastest of any fabric, so hang it in a warm, airy place for quick drying.

JL Shorts, Leggings & Polypro Tech Shirts

These will be made of Polypropylene or Drywick (check the content label). Use cold water, washing bright and dark garments with like colours, then drip dry. Bear in mind that anything that contains lycra will last longer if you hang dry.
