Caring for Delicate Fabrics

Here are some tips from around the web that may help you to take good care of your delicate fabrics and protect them from damaging clothes moths.

Wedding DressDon’t crowd clothes in your closet, as crowding causes wrinkles, which must then be removed. Ironing them again not only wastes your time, but also adds to the wear and tear on your clothes. Storing out of season clothes in another location makes more room in your closet so that your garments aren’t crushed. Sweaters should be folded and placed in drawers, on shelves, or in storage boxes.

Be sure that wool garments, in particular, are clean when stored to deter insects that may smell a banquet on the sleeve of your sweater. It’s disheartening to pull out your favorite sweater and discover a moth hole.

Treat stains promptly. Fresh stains are easier to remove than old ones.

If the stain is on a no washable fabric, take it to the dry cleaner as soon as possible, and describe the nature of the stain and the fiber content of the garment.

Read and carefully follow package directions when using any stain removal product. Always test stain removers on an inside seam or other hidden part of garment for color fastness. To test, apply product and let stand 2-5 minutes, then rinse. If color changes, do not use product on garment.

Hand washing wool can be done easily at home with a wool cleaner and cool or lukewarm water. Squeeze the garment in the soap and water solution, and then let it sit for up to five minutes to soak out any set in dirt. Rinse carefully with cool water and squeeze all excess water from the garment, using a towel to absorb the water. Reshape the garment and allow it to dry flat. Once it has dried, hang it to allow any wrinkles to fall out and brush the garment to bring back the look of the wool.

Roll items when possible to avoid the stretching and creasing that occur on hangers or in folded stacks. When you fold delicate garments, pad them with white, acid-free tissue paper (available in art supply stores). Refold them periodically to minimize creases. Give breathing room to clothes made of natural fibers, such as cotton, linen, silk, and wool. Store them in ventilated containers in a ventilated area.
