How to Care for Design 500 Racewear!

Caring for your new suit depends on the material.

 

Auto Racing Suits

 

Fasten belt & collar and make sure the suit is zipped up. This will prevent the zipper and other fasteners from catching and snagging either the embroidery or suit fabric.

 

Wash in cold or lukewarm water on the ‘gentle’ cycle.

 

If possible, wash your suit before wearing it the first time. Using the ‘gentle’ cycle, the initial wash should be with 1-1 ½ cups of vinegar. This will help ‘set’ the fabric dyes and prevent ‘bleeding’. Laundering will also help loosen up the suit so that it’s more comfortable to wear. Laundering should be done using a BLEACH-FREE, LOW-SUDSING detergent.  We recommend using ALL Free & Clear, or Seventh Generation.  We do not recommend using Tide.  Regardless of the brand you choose, please use a fragrance free detergent.

 

If the suit is caked with clay or mud, do not let it dry before washing! Place the suit in a plastic bag or container to retain the moisture and rinse the suit off when you get home. After rinsing, go through the washing procedure – this should prevent the clay or mud from staining the driver’s suit.

 

If the suit is soiled with grease, oil, etc., treat it with standard stain remover (Oxi-Clean, Simple Green, Super Clean, etc.). If the stain doesn’t come out the first time, DO NOT DRY the suit. Instead, treat it again with the stain remover and re-wash.

 

If the stain doesn’t come out after two consecutive washings, take it to the dry cleaners.

 

When dry cleaning, make sure the cleaner uses the PERCHLOROETHYLENE cleaning process.

 

It is best to let the suit hang dry after washing, but DO NOT HANG THE SUIT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT because ultraviolet rays will fade the colors. If you must use the dryer, set the heat to the lowest setting and remove the suit from the dryer while it is still damp. DO NOT LET THE SUIT ‘BAKE’ IN THE DRYER!

 

Neither washing nor dry cleaning will diminish the fire-retardant properties of your Design 500 Racewear driver’s suit.

 

Kart Racing Suits

 

Fasten belt & collar and make sure the suit is zipped up. This will prevent the zipper and other fasteners from catching and snagging either the embroidery or the suit fabric.

 

Wash in cold or lukewarm water on the ‘normal’ cycle.

 

If possible, wash your suit before wearing it the first time. This will help loosen it up so that it’s more comfortable to wear. Laundering should be done using a BLEACH-FREE, LOW-SUDSING DETERGENT.
