    washing instructions

    Black Bananas offers a wide variety of fabrics and colors in our clothing. Therefore, we would like to give you our recommendations on washing your clothes so the pieces remain at their best quality.

    Followed up by an explanation of the washing symbols used for our clothing. You can find a specific washing instruction based on symbols inside each piece of Black Bananas clothing.

    Washing winter jackets
    We recommend to wash your Black Bananas puffer of filled jacket by hand. This allows the filling to stay in its place.
    If you do wish to wash your jacket by machine, please note this is at own risk. Do not use to much detergent and do not use a too long and warm program. We would recommend using tennis balls or washing balls when washing by machine so the filling won't clutter. If you notice the filling is still cluttered after the machine wash, please put it in the drying with washing balls for just a short amount of time. Your jacket will be puffy again. 
    Please do note we would still recommend hand wash over machine wash, machine wash is at own risk. 

    Washing Tips


    Check the washing label of your clothes before washing it in your machine. Select the right temperature and program. Sort your laundry based on the different fabrics and wash instructions.


    Wash and iron your clothes inside out to keep the color vibrant. T-shirts, sweaters and hoodies with a printed logo or artwork should be washed inside out.


    Use the right amount of detergent for a clean laundry. Follow the dosing advice on the packaging. This advice is based on the amount of laundry, how dirty the laundry is and the hardness of the water. Too much detergent can damage the fibers of the clothing, as a result it wears out faster.


    Wash your clothes with similar colors. You might be used to washing new clothes with bright colors seperately the first time you wash them. However, a washing machine works better and more economically on a full machine. If you like to rinse your new clothes first to make sure that the colors don't leak, rinse them briefly in a lukewarm bath. Clothing from Black Bananas has undergone a washing test and has therefore already been washed once to test the colors.
