Poplin shirt care

How to wash:

Machine wash on 30°C or below, on a regular cycle, using a liquid detergent, such as one of Kair’s Signature Clothing Washes, together with one of their Signature Fabric Conditioners.

How to dry:

Hang to air dry after a quick shake, and to ease the ironing effort, always hang on a hanger. Avoid direct sunlight if you can, unless the fabric is white, and never tumble dry.

How to iron:

Iron on a medium-high heat (we would recommend 150-200ºC) preferably while slightly damp, with the shirt turned inside out, for a crisp but smooth to touch finish. Release wrinkles by steaming.

How to fold:

Travelling with your shirts? We would always recommend rolling instead of folding to help reduce wrinkles. To roll, lay the buttoned up shirt on it’s back and pull back one side so it sits directly on top of its other half. Pick up both sleeves and fold them vertically down the body of the shirt. Then starting at the collar, gently roll the shirt from top to bottom; when you get to the sleeves, fold them in and continue until your whole shirt is rolled up.

If you prefer to fold, then button up the shirt and flip it over so it’s button-side down. Fold the left sleeve and body section of the shirt in and then line the sleeve vertically down; repeat with the right side. Finally, fold the shirt up from the bottom in thirds and turn over.

Top Tips:

To keep your Poplin crisp and wrinkle-free without an iron, you can use a combination of steam and water. One very simple trick is to hang it in your bathroom while having a hot shower.
