Strong sunlight and high levels of atmospheric pollution make it essential that flags are cleaned as often as necessary, but at intervals of not greater than one month.
Comprehensive cleaning instructions are woven into the FlagCraft product label, which is sewn securely onto all textile products that we manufacture.
For best results we recommend that two sets of flags are rotated between washing and flying. Flags should be washed either by hand or machine in COLD water, or dry cleaned and then lightly ironed before storage.
Hot water will not damage the flags, however the heat will, over a period of time, fix pollutants into the fibre of the cloth, which will grey its appearance and reduce the brilliance of colours.
