    Cleaning Synthetic Flags

    Synthetic material flags such as nylon or polyester can be machine washed with cold water and a mild detergent. Do not let the flag stand in the wash water for extended periods of time or some color transfer may occur from the red stripes to the white stripes. These flags should be placed flat to dry.

    Cleaning Cotton Flags

    Natural fiber flags such as cotton and wool should be handled with greater care. We suggest spot cleaning or dry-cleaning. Please contact your local dry cleaners for their recommendation. Some dry-cleaners will dry-clean a U.S. flag at no charge.

    It depends on quality of flag. Need to test if red will run.
