How to Wash Cuts Clothing: It’s Not As Hard As You Think

First, the default for brands like Cuts Clothing is the local dry cleaners. This not only protects your gear, but you can also support small businesses in your community. 

However, dry cleaning can be costly and sometimes not feasible time-wise. Maybe you have a date with the fellas on Saturday and want to look swag in that dope Legacy Bomber jacket from Cuts, but it’s Thursday! Knowing how to wash these expensive garments at home is invaluable in unfortunate circumstances.

Here are some steps to take when time is of essence:

1Read the LabelCheck the care label for washing, bleaching, ironing, and drying instructions.
2Sort Your LaundrySeparate clothes by color and fabric type to prevent color transfer and protect delicate materials.
3Choose the Right DetergentUse a mild detergent for delicate fabrics to preserve fabric quality and color.
4Prep Your GearClose all zippers and buttons, turn garments inside out, and check pockets to protect the fabric during wash.
5Hand Wash or Select the Delicate CycleHand wash or use the delicate cycle with cool water for delicate items.
6Avoid OverloadingEnsure clothes have space to move freely in the machine for thorough cleaning.
7Rinse and DryRinse thoroughly by hand or use a gentle spin cycle, then lay flat to dry without hanging.
8Ironing and StorageIron using the correct heat setting and store on padded hangers in a cool, dry place.

Step 1: Read the Label (duh)

Before anything else, check the care label on your gear.

This is your best guide for understanding what your clothing needs. Look for symbols or instructions about washing, bleaching, ironing, and drying. We know labels aren’t exciting reading material, but consider it executive training for caring for that Cuts bomber you just acquired.

Step 2: Sort Your Laundry

If moms did it, you can too. 

Separate your clothes by color and fabric type. Wash lights with lights, darks with darks, and delicate fabrics separately. This helps to prevent color transfer and protects delicate materials from damage. Consider sorting documents and files to optimize efficiency – a skill that serves business pros well in and out of the boardroom. 

Step 3: Choose the Right Detergent

Invest in a mild detergent that’s designed for delicate fabrics. These detergents are gentler on clothes and help preserve fabric quality and color. Skimping on detergent is like wearing cologne from CVS to a sales pitch. Just don’t.

Step 4: Prep Your Gear

Close all zippers and buttons, turn the garments inside out, and check your pockets, bro. This helps reduce friction on the outer fabric during the wash, protecting prints and embellishments. Plus, it won’t annoy your significant other when the zippers clank in the dryer.

Step 5: Hand Wash or Select the Delicate Cycle

If your gear is highly delicate, hand washing is the safest option. Gently swirl them in a basin of cool water and a small amount of detergent. If you’re using a machine, select the delicate cycle and ensure the water temperature is cool. High heat can damage fabrics like you wouldn’t put fine china in a scorching dishwasher.

Step 6: Avoid Overloading

Don’t overcrowd the washing machine. My bad if I sound like your wife, but I hear it constantly, so you can handle it. Clothes need space to move freely in the water for thorough cleaning and rinsing. 

Step 7: Rinse and Dry

If washing your gear by hand, rinse it until the water clears. Squeeze out excess water gently—don’t wring or twist. For machine-washed clothes, opt for a gentle spin cycle. Lay your gear flat on a clean towel to dry, reshaping it as needed. Avoid hanging, as this can cause stretching. I’ve done this a few times.

Step 8: Ironing and Storage

How to iron your shirts from Cuts Clothing

Iron your clothes if necessary, using the appropriate heat setting for the fabric. Store expensive shirts and jackets in a cool, dry place. To maintain their shape, hang jackets and blouses on padded hangers. Consider setting up the proper infrastructure, so your wardrobe can continue looking boardroom-ready.

Final Thoughts

Look, we get it. Laundry day isn’t exactly fun, especially when you’re crunched for time or just spent a grip on some new Cuts gear. But costly as these threads may be, it’s within reason to wash many pieces safely at home between trips to the cleaners.

Taking proper care will extend the lifespan of your gear well beyond the purchase price. As busy pros building influence, isn’t that the goal – to maximize value from your investments, whether stocks, real estate, or those new $300 sneakers?

Approach laundry day as mindful productivity outside cramped offices and crowded inboxes. Sort clothes while clearing your head from intense meetings. Squeeze out excess water instead of workplace stress. Follow the care instructions for high-end fabrics, and your next big sales pitch or rooftop kickback with the fellas will see you flexing with dimensional style.

So, be gentle with your gear. Laundry day doesn’t have to be a drag. Take it as a time to show love to the garms that show love to you when it matters most.
