It is suggested to have a committee that takes care of garments. Divide the garments for washing among several parents who will use the same washing procedure to ensure correct care. If you use a professional cleaner – please give them these same instructions. It is not necessary to wash uniforms before wearing them. Avoid washing bib pants and jackets together! Never wash in hot water! Use only non-chlorine household laundry detergent.
NOTE: Always test wash one garment before the entire set. Water in different regions of the country can sometimes react differently in combination with different detergents and fabrics.
Fred J. Miller, Inc. turned to America’s most prominent fabric mill, Milliken and Company, and its most famous product, Visa fabrics, to secure the latest in fabric technology for its trademark Cesario™ Collection.
Outcomes from the latest rounds of testing provided FJM with the superior fabric it demanded, and proved that the Visa System 3 outperforms the claims of every other fabric being used in uniforms today.
