**Why does my apparel have a vinegar smell?**
When unpacking a new shirt or hoodie with a direct-to-garment (DTG) print, you might notice a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue. Don't worry, that's not unusual - it's from a fixation agent applied during the printing process and it's not permanent.
Fixation agent (sometimes known as pre-treatment) is used for all DTG prints across the industry. It helps the ink bond with the fabric, and without it, the ink would flake off the garment.
The solution is simply to wash the garment! Neither the residue nor the smell is permanent and both should go away after one wash.
Actual product color may vary slightly from the images shown. Every monitor or mobile display has a different capability to display colors, and every individual may see these colors differently. In addition, lighting conditions at the time the photo was taken can also affect an image's color.
• Always, always turn the shirt inside out when washing
Doing this will help preserve the design on your shirt, but at the same time getting it nice and washed and cleaned. If you end up ignoring any other rule on this list, make sure to follow this one. Turning the shirt inside out prevents the image from receiving so much agitation from the washer, especially if you have a washer with an agitator. The friction of the machine will likely cause the image to crack. If you’ve ever washed a shirt with a print of medium or bad quality, you know what we’re talking about. It comes out of the washer all cracked and discolored.
• Don’t wash the shirt on hot temperature
It’s generally recommended to wash ALL shirts on cool and only rarely wash them on warm cycles – and only if it’s extremely necessary. The plastic-type property of the silk designs in cotton shirts are very susceptible to warm/hot water and they will most probably bubble, crack and peel under harsh conditions.
• If you can, wash the garment on the delicate cycle and with a delicate, but effective detergent
Because there is less agitation on a delicate cycle, there is less wear and tear on the printed image. Less wear and tear equals a longer shirt life. Delicate detergents are recommended, since harsher, stronger detergents may cause excessive wear and tear on that great design.
• Use fabric softener or dryer sheets when washing
Do this to avoid wrinkles (also, remove clothes as soon as the dryer shuts off!)
• Don't overload the washing machine!
Even though it’s common knowledge that overloading your washer will definitely do some damage on its drum and affect its performance (both in front-load and top-load washers), overloading your washer will affect your white clothes! If the shirts are white, wash them with only whites!
• Fold your shirts after washing them
To that end, it's generally recommended you fold sweaters and t-shirts to help them last longer because putting them on hangers can stretch them out.
