Clothing care guide
The way we should care about our lingerie and clothing in general depends on the material. Here is a table with simple guidelines to follow in different cases. Hang tags or other labels on clothing tell the fiber content. This information is collected with a hope to help you decide about the proper washing and the best stain removal procedure
|Cotton||One of the most common and suitable materials for casual and special occasion lingerie and underwear. It is elastic and absorbs body moisture. Human skin can breathe with clothes made of cotton.
There are no temperature restriction in washing and ironing of the cotton garment unless the manufacturer has mentioned otherwise in the Laundry Guide. Cotton creases just like the linen and that is why it should be ironed with steam.
|Silk||Silk fiber is very soft and the textile is shining and forms beautiful draperies. Silk textile has fast drying effect and thus it is good for hot weather. Unfortunately silk is easily damaged by the sun’s rays. Being sensitive to heat silk garment should be hand washed in cool water with the use of mild washing powders. Creases like the cotton and should be ironed with low temperature iron.|
|Wool||Wool is a good temperature insulates. It is durable, flexible, and soft. Typically it should be dry cleaned. Other cleaning option for the woolen garment is hand wash with mild detergent.|
|Viscose rayon or artificial silk (art silk)||Rayon also known as art silk is produced by regenerated cellulosic fiber. It is sot and shine as silk but can be machine washed at low temperature. As it creases it should cool ironed.|
|Lycra, Elasthane, Polyester, Polyamides||These fibers are truly synthetic and should not be hot ironed as they can melt. All synthetic fibers are machine washable at medium temperature and do not crease. The only shortcoming is that they are not durable and do not absorb moisture|
