Care of Cap & Gown

Our "Freedom" Cap and Gown Sets

These matte finish graduation gowns are made of a 100% woven polyester matte fabric with a silky feel, which drapes nicely.


IRONING:
You can get the majority of the wrinkles out of your gown by putting it in the dryer on the lowest heat setting and putting a damp towel in with it. Run it for about 15 minutes. (Don't OVER dry, or it will be full of static!) This will remove most of the wrinkles. If it needs to be ironed, use the lowest heat setting on your iron, which is usually called "synthetics" or "polyester." Test a small area first inside a seam to be sure that the iron is not too hot; an iron that is too hot will melt the fabric. We have had best results by ironing from the inside of the gown.

 

WASHING: 
The apparel is 100% woven polyester fabric, which is washable. We've washed these gowns ourselves with no problems, and the feedback from customers on the durability and washability has been very positive. We recommend that you hand wash in cool water and hang to dry.The caps, because they contain a plastic insert rather than cardboard, can be handwashed and line-dried, but it is difficult to get them looking good after washing, since they can't be ironed. We don't recommend washing the caps.
