Aussie Chef Uniform Care

When working as a chef, getting your chef uniform dirty is pretty much inevitable. No matter where you are working though, you’ll want to make sure your chef uniform stays clean and professional at all times.

This Chef Uniform Care Guide is a helpful tool for customers to understand the types of chef uniform fabrics and their care instructions, so that they can make an informed choice when choosing chef jackets, pants and aprons for themselves and their staff. Or they can use the Care Guide as a handy reminder if they have already purchased some of our chef jackets, pants and aprons.

Aussie Chef Clothing Company carries a great range of chef jackets, chef pants, aprons and accessories in various fabrics and colours, therefore, each and every item comes with a specific Aussie Chef Care Label attached to help our customers care for them in the best way possible.

Chef Uniforms are designed to be hard-wearing, but all fabrics wear with age and have some limitations.

Chef Uniform Care Tips

Choose the Highest Quality

The first step to a more professional uniform is choosing high-quality work clothing. It is important to choose fabrics that perform well in the kitchen. Breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics are perfect for a kitchen environment because it can get extremely hot.

Aussie Chef takes pride in the designing their chef uniforms to the highest level, in breathable fabrics, with double stitching on all edges, bar tacking on pressure points and using quality hardware - buttons, zippers, press studs and rivets.

Pay Attention to Care Label Instructions

Reading is important. The care label in your chef’s uniform will tell you exactly how to care for the fabric. Most chef uniforms have different washing instructions for your casual clothing. Following the instructions closely will help keep your chef uniform looking good day after day.

Removing Stains

Spills and stains are inevitable in the food and beverage industry. Treat any stains on your chef’s uniforms as soon as you possibly can because the longer the stain sits on the fabric, the tougher it will be to remove.
