How to Clean Playing Cards

     Cleaning plastic playing cards

  • Your cards will last longer if you keep them clean in the first place. However they can be cleaned if you need.
  • To wash your cards, use cold water, mild neutral soap and a soft cloth. Do not use hot water.
  • Clean only a few cards at a time.
  • Rub very lightly on both sides of the card and rinse quickly.
  • Dry thoroughly at once using a clean, soft cloth.
  • Spread your washed cards on a table and allow minimum 20 minutes drying time on each side. Avoid direct sunshine.
  • Do not try to dry cards using artificial heating elements like a hair dryer.
  • Occasionally wipe your plastic cards with a damp cloth and let dry thoroughly.
  • Never use detergent or alkaline soap.
  • Never wash cards in a washing machine.
  • Never put cards away damp, either from washing or perspiration.
  • Never store cards where they will be exposed to sunshine or any other source of heat like a car dashboard.
  • Play on a clean felt table. Playing on poor quality or dirty surfaces will result in scratches which will allow dirt to accumulate on the cards.
  • Store your cards in a consistently cool and dry environment.
  • Do not leave your playing cards in a hot car or exposed to direct sunlight
