How to Care for Your Hoodies: Keeping Them Soft and New

Hoodies are a staple in many wardrobes, valued for their comfort and versatility. Proper care is essential not only to maintain their condition but also to ensure they continue to feel as good as new. This guide from SoCo Hoodie offers detailed tips on how to effectively maintain your hoodies.

Understanding Fabric Types

Hoodies come in various fabrics, each requiring specific care. For example, the Custom Embroidered Date Roman Numeral Hoodie is made from a different material than the Original Sherpa Fleece Blanket Hoodie, which is thicker and requires more gentle care to maintain its softness and thermal qualities.

Washing Guidelines

To keep your hoodies in the best possible condition, follow these specific washing instructions:

  • Temperature Control: Always wash hoodies in cold water to prevent shrinking and preserve color.
  • Detergent Choice: Use a gentle detergent to avoid damaging the fabric, especially for delicate materials like those used in the Roo Hoodie.
  • Turning Inside Out: This practice protects the outer surface and any printed graphics from abrasion and fading during the wash cycle.

Drying Techniques

Correct drying methods can significantly extend the life of your hoodies:

  • Heat Settings: Opt for low heat drying or air drying to protect the fabric’s integrity, particularly important for hoodies like the Walking Snoopy Hoodie which features delicate prints.
  • Drying Position: Air drying by laying the hoodie flat ensures that heavier hoodies like the sherpa fleece do not stretch out of shape.

Storage Solutions

Proper storage is crucial for keeping your hoodies in pristine condition:

  • Avoid Hangers: Hanging can stretch the fabric, so it’s recommended to fold hoodies, especially those with a looser fit like the Christmas Mickey Mouse Casual Sweaters, which are prone to losing their shape.
  • Moisture and Light: Store your hoodies in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent the fabric from fading and becoming prone to mildew.

Spot Cleaning and Repair

Addressing stains and wear immediately can significantly prolong the life of your hoodies:

  • Spot Cleaning: Tackle stains promptly to prevent them from setting, especially on hoodies with vibrant colors or white fabric.
  • Mending Tears: Small rips can often be repaired at home, saving your favorite pieces from being discarded.


By following these detailed care instructions, you can ensure that your hoodies remain a comfortable and cherished part of your casual or loungewear collection for years to come.
