While flying your flags on residential or commercial flagpoles can fill you with pride, a dirty or tired-looking flag can have the opposite effect. Inclement weather, car fumes and general wear-and-tear can cause your flag to look a little worn, but this is easily rectified.
Flags are washable with warm water and a mild detergent or soap. After removing your flag from its flagpole, you should machine wash it at approximately 90 degrees Fahrenheit. After rinsing your flag, you should thoroughly spread it out to dry. Remember not to let your flag stand in water for too long to avoid the colors from running.
Once your flag is dry, you can return it to its flagpole. If you require help with this, consider contacting your local flagpole contractor for help and instructions.
