Once you receive your shipping kit, simply follow these easy steps (instructions will be also included) …
Step 1. Fill out the order form and shipping label. Include your email address for status updates via email.
Step 2. Optional – Place stain stickers provide with the kit on areas of the gown that may need special attention. Please use only the stain stickers provided, as others may damage the gown. (Since the most common problem area is the hemline, you do not need to mark this.)
