Tips and Tricks for Caring For Your Chef Uniform

Tips and Tricks for Caring For Your Chef Uniform

Invest in a high-quality uniform
When it comes to your chef uniform, it’s worth paying that little bit extra for quality. Buying cheap, mass-market chef jackets will only mean you have to replace them more often - when you opt for quality, you’re making an investment.

Higher-quality chef uniforms will last much longer. Not only are they made of thicker, easier to clean materials, but they’re also made of fabrics that retain colour and can withstand repeated washing. Remember, it’s always worth paying more for a uniform that will last.

Always read the care labels
As we mentioned above, your chef uniform isn’t like your normal clothes. Before you throw it in the washing machine, take the time to read the care instructions on the label. Care instructions are designed for each individual piece and will ensure your uniform lasts as long as possible.

Don’t leave stains
As with any piece of clothing, treating a stain as soon as possible is key. The kitchen can be a busy place and you may not have the time to care for each and every stain as soon as it happens, but it’s worth tending to it as soon as you get a minute. Remember not to rub a stain; this will only rub the grease or oil further into the fabric. Try to treat the stain as soon as possible and make sure you launder the piece at the earliest chance too.

Store your items properly
Being a chef can be extremely tiring, especially if you’re working long hours and are on your feet all day. When you get home, it can be tempting to chuck your apron and jacket on the floor and climb into bed, but taking the time to hang them up means you can wear them for longer between washes, helping to extend the lifespan of your uniform. Always hang your uniform up instead of leaving it crumpled in a drawer.
