Care Code Information

This information applies to our fabrics only.  The numbers used may or may not correspond to care codes in purchased clothing.

Care Code 2 Machine wash warm, line dry
Care Code 3 Machine wash cold, normal cycle.  Only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry low, remove promptly. Use cool iron if needed.
Care Code 4 Machine wash warm, delicate cycle. Tumble dry low. Use cool iron if needed.
Care Code 5 Machine wash cool. Tumble dry low. Do not dry clean.

Main Street By Mail recommends pre-washing all our fabrics, unless otherwise stated.  Other sewing experts have suggested NOT pre-washing rib, so that it shrinks back into shape with the first wash.  We suggest that you DO pre-wash our Lycra Rib as it will NOT stretch out of shape while sewing.  (The Lycra ensures this.)  Pre-washing also helps prevent the rib dye from running onto other parts of the finished garment.
