- Never machine wash or machine dry your shirt
Dry clean or hand wash only. If you choose to
hand wash, it should be done using in a gentle
detergent then hang dry. Do not wring the garment.
Always unbutton the aloha shirt before washing
to relieve stress on the buttons and button
holes. Always use padded hangers when hanging.
- The best way is to store your vintage shirt
is to wrap them in acid free tissue paper and
store them in a box in a cool dry place. Another
way to store shirts is on a padded hanger in a
cool dry closet with no light. However, this is
not possible here in Hawaii due to the high humidity
and pests. The humidity will lead to foxing and
mold. We store all of our shirts in vacuum sealed
bags after wrapping them in acid free paper. We
also add a silica gel pack to draw the moisture
away from the shirt. Remember that heat, light
and moisture are enemies of aloha shirts.
