Information Regarding the Use of Anti-Static Rinse and Dry-Cleanable Garments

Aug 17, 2007
There are things that you need to know about the anti-static rinses and dry-cleanable garments. Here are some information which you can use.

There is a washing procedure that we need to know while washing the garments, as wrong treatment can damage the clothes. Here is washing procedure that you need to know before you wash the clothes.

"MACHINE DRYING. If a home tumble-type dryer is available use the complete machine wash and spin dry cycles. Then dry the garments at the "Low" temperature setting for about twenty minutes. Recent studies have shown that even greater satisfaction may be had if a drying temperature of 170 F. is used, followed by five to ten minutes of tumbling without heat. Remove the garments immediately at the end of the drying cycle and hang on stainless hangers.

When in doubt, dry for the length of time suggested by the dryer manufacturer. Avoid tumble drying of pleated garments.

"IRONING. When ironing is desired, use a steam or a dry iron at the 'Rayon' or 'Synthetic' setting. The use of a press cloth is helpful in many instances. Ironing of garments of Dacron, Orion, or nylon is very easy and can be done in considerably less time than is required for garments of other fibers."

ANTI-STATIC RINSES. The tendency of clothing made of synthetic fibers to snap, crackle, and pop in cold dry weather, or cling to the body, can be reduced by special rinses. The clinging is due to the accumulation of static electricity in the cloth and is not limited to synthetics. Wool and silk also cling under similar conditions.

To reduce static build up, say Du Pont authorities, add a small amount of a liquid detergent, fabric softener, or special anti-static agent to the final rinse water. Liquid detergents and fabric softeners (often called "miracle laundry rinses") can be bought at food and grocery stores. For liquid anti-static agents go to a drugstore or to the notion counter of a department store. Typical products, known to produce results, are listed as follows by the Textile Fibers Department of the Du Pont Company: liquid detergent, Glim; fabric softeners, Sta-Puf and Nu-Soft; anti-static agents, Slip Ease and Nega-stat There are undoubtedly other products which are also suitable.

Wash the garments in the usual manner and afterwards rinse them in a solution of the product selected, according to the instructions on the container. Some people accumulate more static than others; in this case modify the amount to suit your static tendencies.

DRY-CLEANABLE GARMENTS of synthetic fibers can be given static protection easily by a competent dry cleaner. An anti-static dry cleaning detergent, such as Buckeye Clean Charge, is added in a 2 to 4 per cent concentration to the usual cleaning solution. This treatment reduces static buildup to a point where it is not bothersome. It is not permanent and must be repeated each time the garment is cleaned. Washable garments with anti-static finishes are best washed with soap; detergents remove them.

The tendency of clothing made of synthetic fibers to snap, crackle, and pop in cold dry weather, or cling to the body, can be reduced by special rinses. You need to protect the dry-cleanable garments by a competent dry cleaner.
