instead of dry clean, the properties of each fabric will help you
determine the care of the fabric or garment
Store carefully : Store in a cool dry place.
Help with crease : Suites made out of wool and wool blends fabric should
shed their crease if hung in steep for a short time and them left
Lighter fabric care : may take little longer time to shed their crease
this can be also shed through ironing with a damp cloth or steam iron on a
two dot setting.
Caring wet wool : Dry it immediately away from direct heat never in front
of fire, radiator or strong sun light. Do not tumble dry unless label says
it is safe.
Give wool garments a 24-hour rest between wearings. Hang on shaped or
padded hangers, leaving lots of space. In general, wool fibers will shed
wrinkles and return to their original shape
Empty pockets, remove belts and hang with closures zipped and buttoned.
Brush wool to remove surface soil. Use a damp sponge for knits and finer
Refresh wool garments quickly after wearing or unpacking by hanging them
in a steamy bathroom. Moisture from the steam will remove wrinkles.
If wool gets wet, dry the garment at room temperature away from heat. If
there's a nap, brush with the nap.
Remove spots and stains promptly.
Dry clean once a season or when stained), and especially before storing.
Always steam when pressing wool. Use the wool setting. Avoid pressing wool
totally dry. When possible, press on the reverse side of the fabric. When
necessary to press on the right side, use a press cloth to avoid a shine.
Lower and lift the iron, don't slide it back and forth. Prevent imprinting
inside detail by placing a piece of brown paper or tissue paper under
folds, seams or darts.
Care instructions are normally provided on wool garments and can vary
according to the type of wool. Following the care instruction will ensure
they retain its natural quality and characteristics.
Hand Wash is not advisable for wool and wool blend fabrics but is normally
applicable for poly-wool below 35%:65%.
Washing Instruction for better performance
Turn garment inside out to protect outer surface
Ensure the powder is fully dissolved
Soaking for five minutes or less will help to dislodge dirt before gently
squeezing the liquid through the knit ware.
Never rub the garment fabric in warm water and in cold water.
Use of fabric conditioner is preferred.
Dry in shade only
Cotton can be easily laundered. It can withstand high temperatures
(boiling water does not hurt the fiber).
Any good detergent can be used to wash cotton.
Chlorine bleach can be used safely on cotton whites. Use color safe bleach
on dyed cottons.
Since cotton fibers are fairly inelastic cotton fabrics may wrinkle
easily. And, fabric may need frequent pressing.
However, cotton fabric can be treated with a wrinkle resistant finish to
create a more resilient fabric/garment. The label will tell you if this
finish has been applied.
A higher heat setting is needed in the dryer to dry cotton. Cotton will
take much longer to dry than less absorbent fibers.
Cotton can be ironed with a hot iron, and does not scorch easily
Some linens are washable, while others are dry clean only. Be sure to
check the label.
Washable household linen, handkerchiefs, and linen apparel can be washed
easily and become softer with use.
White linens should be dried in the sun, if to help them to keep their
Linen fabrics may need frequent pressing, unless treated for crease
resistance. (Permanent press and soil release finishes are now being used
effectively on 65% linen/35% polyester tablecloths, napkins and
Most items made from polyester can be machine washed and dried.
Use warm water and add a fabric softener to the final rinse cycle.
Machine dry at low temperature setting and remove articles as soon as the
tumbling cycle is complete.
If ironing is needed, use a moderately warm iron.
Most items made from polyester can be dry-cleaned.
