Proper care is vital to extend the life of your custom Christmas socks from Sockrates.

Your employees choose how to care for their socks, but here are some steps you can share to ensure they stay vibrant and comfortable for years to come:

  1. Wash Inside Out: To protect the fabric and maintain vibrant colors, always turn your socks inside out before washing. This helps to prevent the outside surface from getting worn out or faded.
  2. Use Cold Water: Wash your custom socks in cold water. Hot water can shrink the fabric and fade the colors. A gentle cycle is recommended for delicate materials.
  3. Avoid Bleach and Ironing: Bleach can damage the fabric and fade the colors of your custom socks. Similarly, ironing can ruin the texture and elasticity of the socks. It's best to avoid both.
  4. Air-Dry Your Socks: Instead of using a dryer, air-dry your custom bulk socks to preserve their elasticity and quality. Drying socks in high heat can cause them to shrink and can also create static electricity.
  5. Store Properly: Store your socks in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can fade the colors of your socks over time.

By following these care instructions, your custom Christmas socks will remain vibrant, comfortable, and wearable long after the holidays are done.
