Old Glory with Pride
Here’s another interesting piece of information – outdoor American Flags that are washed or dry cleaned regularly will both last longer and maintain their vivid colors longer than those that are not properly cared for. That’s because dirt and air pollution can both make the colors dull and cause damage to the fibers. If you choose to clean your flag at home, wash it with a mild soap on the gentle cycle and remove it from the washing machine promptly to avoid having the colors run. Never place your flag in the dryer; instead, lay it out flat and allow it to air dry.
But I have an even better suggestion than washing it yourself – bring it to A Cleaner World. We clean American Flags free of charge – every day.
