Polyester fabrics are strong, resilient, wrinkle-resistant, colorfast, crisp, and hold pleats and creases well.Polyester can be safely dry-cleaned or machine-washed.
Machine-wash polyester in warm water, using an all-purpose detergent. Fabric softener will reduce static electricity.
White polyester fabric will look even whiter if you soak it overnight in a mixture of 1/2 cup automatic dishwashing detergent and 1 gallon warm water. Launder as usual, but add 1/2 cup vinegar to the final rinse.
Tumble-dry at a low temperature setting. Do not overly dry polyester; this will cause gradual shrinkage.
Press polyester fabrics at a moderate temperature setting, or use steam.
