Method to Take Proper Care Of the Sweaters

Aug 17, 2007
Washing the sweaters needs special attention, mistreatment of the sweater will make them rough and hard, really uncomfortable to be used. Here are some guides on to maintain your sweater.

HAND WASHING SWEATERS of Orion and nylon is also preferred, and is a must for those ornamented with sequins or other delicate trimmings. The rules are the usual ones for synthetics: warm water, strong detergent, or soap plus a softener, no strenuous rubbing, scrubbing, or twisting. A little soft brush, gently used, is very effective for spots. Follow the washing with a thorough rinsing in warm water. The addition of a fabric softener such as Sta-Puf or Nu-Soft to the final rinse water is recommended to keep these sweaters soft. Directions on the container will tell you how much to use. When you remove your sweater from the final rinse water, squeeze out excess water gently then spread it flat to dry. While spreading the sweater flat is the preferred method of drying, hangers can be used. Let it drip dry and it will still keep its shape. Orion and nylon sweaters do not shrink.

MACHINE-WASHING SWEATERS. If you decide to use your washer to launder sweaters, here are suggestions from the DuPont Company. Set the washer for a five to eight minute wash cycle and, after the last rinse (before the spin dry cycle), stop the machine and take the sweaters out dripping wet and dry them as described for hand laundering. If you use a home dryer, let the sweaters go through the spin dry cycle, and then dry them at a low temperature setting for about twenty minutes. Remove them immediately at the end of the drying cycle.

FUZZING. Should your nylon or Orion sweaters fuzz, you can make them look better by brushing them lightly with a soft brush.

PARTY DRESSES. Whether you hand wash or machine wash little girls' all nylon or all Dacron party dresses will depend, again, on the manufacturer's tag. If the instructions have been misplaced or lost, the following procedure will be easiest and safest. First, remove delicate trimmings such as ribbons and bows, which usually are safety-pinned or tacked on with large stitches. Wash delicately constructed dresses by hand (take a look at the seams) after pretreating or spot cleaning where this is necessary.

If you decide to wash the dresses by machine do not include them in a heavy load, and do not wash white dresses with colored ones. Use warm water and a three to five minute wash cycle. Preferably, stop the machine before the spin dry cycle begins. Best results are achieved with drip drying and no ironing should then be required. Just straighten the hem, seams, and collar. If the weather is bad for drying, or if you need die dresses in a hurry, follow these directions for drying, but do not include dresses with pleats: remove excess water by letting the dresses go through several minutes of the spin dry cycle after they have been washed and rinsed. Then, using the lowest temperature setting possible, let them tumble until they are damp dry. Remove the dresses immediately and place them on stainproof hangers. If they need touch-up ironing, use a steam iron or a dry iron set for "rayon" or "synthetics." A press cloth may be helpful.

FOR WOMEN'S BLOUSES of Dacron, or Dacron and cotton blends, follow the directions for nylon party dresses, always pretreating badly soiled areas as described. Delicately made or trimmed blouses should be washed by hand; sturdier ones can be machine washed for five to eight minutes. The general rule for blends is to follow the washing instructions for the most delicate fiber in the fabric.

MEN'S SHIRTS. Use essentially the same technique for men's Dacron, or Dacron and cotton shirts. Drip drying gives the most wrinkle-free results for both blouses and shirts, but if you want to use a dryer for shirts set it at "low." Most recent studies have shown that best results are obtained with a tumble drying temperature of 170 F., followed by five to ten minutes tumbling without heat. Remove the shirts immediately at the end of the drying period and place them on hangers. Shirts allowed to go through the complete drying cycle may need ironing, but it can be done easily and quickly in about half the time usually required for a man's cotton shirt.

Sometimes after wearing the party dress, we feel confuse on how to clean them, as we are afraid that the fabric will become bad if we don't handle them in a proper way.

For sweaters made from synthetics use warm water with strong detergent plus softener. If sweater is washed using washing machine, you have to set the washer for five to eight minutes in wash cycle. Read the instruction on the tag whether the cloth needs to be hand washed or can be washed using washing machine and use the warm water. Delicate women's blouses needs to be hand washed only.
