- Clear, gentle PH balanced detergent, we recommend using Dreft.
- PH balanced stain remover, we recommend Dreft Laundry Stain Remover.
- Squeaky clean, debris free sink.
- Flat surface for air drying, clothes rack recommended to allow airflow while the garment air dries.
- Two white towels.
- Rebel garment.
- Icy water. The most critical element to the care of your Rebel Athletic garments is the water temperature.
Pre-wash – Do not dry clean, hand wash only. If any stains are present, we recommend pre-treating with Dreft Stain Spray. Turn garment inside out. Fill sink with cold water, add detergent and to two cups of ice.
Wash and rinse - Quickly submerge garment in the icy water-detergent solution. Gently hand wash for 60 seconds and do not rub the fabric against itself. Drain sink, remove the garment and fill the sink again with only icy water to rinse the garment. Repeat this last step if needed to remove any detergent residue.
Drying – IMPORTANT! AIR DRY ONLY, DO NOT USE A CLOTHES DRYER. Turn the garment right side out, lay flat on a white towel, and insert another white towel within the body of the garment. This will reduce drying time and avoid any possibility of color transference during the drying process.
Care – Once completely dry, hang the garment on a fabric covered hanger, don’t have one? No worries, a plastic hanger without blemishes will work just fine. For apparel that has a waistband made in Unicorn Hologram, Rainbow Sparkle, Mystiqué or has decoration (e.g. studs, crystals, vinyl), we highly suggest using a clamp-free hanger to deter indentations or damage to the garment.
Tip to remember when rocking your Rebel Athletic apparel: Perspiration, deodorant, hairspray, glitter spray, sunless tanning products and lotions may affect the color of your garment. Take precautions to avoid transference.
Cleaning - We recommend using a damp, white cloth to clean the inside of your bag. Gently spot clean the high-density sparkle ONLY when necessary with a damp, white cloth. Do not use any harsh cleaners, chemicals or submerge in water as it will compromise the integrity of your Dream Bag.
Care - Rebel Dream Bags are meant to last a lifetime of competitions, workout sessions or sleepovers so be mindful of what items you transport in the bag. Our Dream Bags are durable and were initially designed with cheer athletes in mind. Please avoid overfilling or using the bag to carry heavy objects.
