Take care of the things you love.

Care guide


We know taking care of the things you love is important to you, so why should it be any different when it comes to your clothes? We have compiled a basic care guide so that your gear can last longer and look better than ever. Since most of our products are cotton-based, it is important to consider the information below. Cotton is a natural material and can therefore be sensitive to certain types of washing, drying and other forms of care. 

Care guide

Having an impact

Taking care of your clothes not only keeps them looking good but also has a positive overall impact on the environment. By maintaining your products with our useful tips, you can increase the life span of your Mad Dogs gear significantly, which uses less natural resources over a longer duration. The longer your items last, the less impact they have on the environment by decreasing the frequency in which you need to buy new items to replace the old ones.

Care guide tips:

Cold wash

Cold washing cotton makes sure that there is no shrinkage in the washing process. Most materials including cotton are sensitive to heat which can cause shrinkage. Cold washing your products will allow them to maintain their soft feel.

Do not bleach

We recommend to never bleach your garments. Bleaching can cause the fabric to become yellow and may dry out the fabric, giving it a rougher feel to the touch.

Warm iron

Using a warm iron will avoid damage to the fabric, shrinkage and loss of softness. We recommend not ironing over printed areas of your garments and to avoid those areas since it could cause fade and damage to the print. We recognise this is not always possible but it is important to maintain a low heat on the iron.

Do not dry clean

Dry cleaning can damage the fabric as there is no water being used in the cleaning process. This type of drying can fray the material fibres, thus making the garment lose its soft touch and crisp finish.

Do not tumble dry

Tumble drying uses a high amount of heat which can cause your garments to shrink, dry out and become rough to the touch.

Flat fold or hang

We recommend flat folding or hanging up your garments when not in use to avoid wrinkles occurring. Most materials wrinkle very easily, especially cotton so it’s important to make sure its folded correctly or hanging straight to keep it looking fresh, clean and neat.
