Garment Care

Our fabrics are internationally sourced; Rizues group aims to provide the best selection of fabrics to be used in uniforms which conform to uniform & workwear industry’s required standards. All fabrics are subject to vigorous performance testing carried out in-house and accredited independent laboratories – tests including:

  • Abrasion and pilling
  • Colour fastness
  • Dimensional stability

Garment care and washing instructions are printed on a care label attached to the garment. For example Rizues’ healthcare uniform range is suitable for commercial launder for 80˚C.

We recommend the following:

  • Do not mix 65% polyester / 35% cotton garments with 100% cotton or other blends compositions.
  • Classify garments in accordance with colour and degree of soiling for best wash results.
  • Try to avoid soap based detergents structured for 100% cotton.
  • Do not bleach garments. Chlorine or Oxygen type bleaches may be used for white garments.

Satisfactory washing can be achieved at lower temperatures i.e. 60˚C or 40˚C for machine washable suits, blouses, shirts, knitwear, etc. However higher washing temperatures i.e. 80˚C may be used for heavily soiled garments or garments subject to infection control, where indicated on the respective garment care label.
