Washing and Cleaning Suspenders
Can I wash my suspenders?
Yes, our elastic suspenders are washable. But try to do it as little as possible. And the keyword is “gentle”.
We recommend washing them either by hand or by placing them in a mesh laundry wash bag and running them through your washing machine on a delicate cycle. Be sure to wash colors separately since colors may run. Use cool water and mild detergent. No bleach!
After washing your suspenders, hang them to dry. No dryer!
To clean spots or stains on the elastic suspenders we have had good luck with the Tide pens.
Suspenders with leather crosspatches or leather tabs can be washed as long as they are not dried with heat, which can dry out the leather. You may want to treat the leather afterwards with a leather conditioner to help maintain the suppleness of the leather.
Also note that repeated washing may shorten the expected life of the suspender so we recommend washing only occasionally or when soiled.
We do not recommend washing our non-elastic suspenders – leather, oxford cloth, grosgrain, and silk. In the event that one of these items gets soiled, consult a cleaning professional.
