HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PRINT:

Taking care of a cyanotype print requires unique care in order to preserve its color, contrast, and brightness. 

- Limit washing at all. If you need to wash, hand wash in COLD water only, hang to dry.   If you must use soap, use a non-phosphate detergent. I use Foca Phosphate-Free Laundry Detergent.

 If your washing machine has a spin-only cycle, spin out the excess water in this cycle to get the piece of clothing as dry as possible without using any heat.

- Sweat and hand oils may cause discoloration.

 - Cyanotype prints are archival, meaning they are meant to last for years (50-100+ years.) However, yellowing or fading may occur if prints are exposed to phosphates, high pH solutions, baking soda, washing soda, bleach, or alkalines.

 - Cyanotypes can also fade due to strong, direct, long sunlight exposure (basically, don’t leave your prints outside in the direct sun for days or weeks and you should be fine).

 - If you find yourself having to wash your jacket more frequently, soaking your jacket or item in cold water with a bit of hydrogen peroxide diluted in it can help bring a pop of life back into the print. Please wring out the water as much as possible and hang to dry.
