Take Care when Caring for Wool!!

Take Care when Caring for Wool!!

Wool is a popular sweater fabric because it is durable, comfortable, and an excellent insulator. If your wool sweater gets damp, hang it to air dry at room temperature. Do not hang near a heat source, as this will promote mildew. A gentle brushing of wool sweaters after each wearing helps remove surface soil.

If the care label suggests hand washing, use cool water with mild soap or bleach-free detergent. Soak up to five minutes and rinse thoroughly. Squeeze out excess water, but do not wring or twist the fabric. To dry, lay the sweater flat, away from sunlight or heat. If using a plastic sweater board as a drying surface, covering the board with a towel (under the sweater) will help prevent snagging.

If the care label suggests machine washing, use the gentle cycle. Bring your wools, or any sweater with dryclean-only label, to us for stain removal.

Q: How can I remove paint stains from my child’s clothing?

A: Most paints children end up playing with are water soluble and will easily come out in regular washing.

Any residual stain removal chemicals can harm your child’s skin, so it’s best to leave that kind of work to the pros – us.
