Winter is a season of fresh cold breeze, tender snow and so much warmth. However, much loved this season maybe, but the proper care of the heavy, delicate, loved and expensive winter clothing is dreaded by everyone. It requires calculated accuracy to extract the maximum out of clothing and preserving its novelty. Especially, caring baby clothing is more difficult because baby skins are more sensitive than adults then we need to be careful when caring them. Therefore, in this writing we will give you simple and effective tips for cleaning, packing, storing and using your children winter clothes that they may look bright, neat, new and also retain the warmth.
First, you should always look out for instructions on the garment to understand its wash requirements. It is usually advisable to hand wash the woolen or get them dry cleaned at a reliable dry cleaner.
Second, parents should be sure to check for loose buttons or threads before handing over. When washing at home, slightly dry squeeze the woolen and let it dry in sunlight by spreading it on a flat surface.
Third, you should tightly squeeze the clothes or hang them to dry may loosen the size or distort the shape. The woolens must be stored appropriately in a closet which permits passage of air. Placing woolen clothes in a moist or poorly ventilated place may cause them to have a foul damp smell. The coats must be hanged and buttoned on a coat hanger while the sweaters and jackets can be folded neatly to avoid creases. Remove the lint from the coat with the coat brush and neatly place the baby sweaters and baby jackets to fold. While packing the woolens one can use mothballs or cedar sachets to prevent fabric decay by moths. You should keep the mothballs wrapped in a cotton cloth or paper. You can directly place mothballs between or with the woolens can cause staining.
Fourth, we often underestimate the value of correctly caring of our woolens when we are wearing them. The fact is that wool is a delicate fabric, and it should be handled well while being worn. Therefore, you should try and avoid direct perfume sprays on wool as it attracts moth, notice surfaces before sitting to avoid stains and dirt. This means that you should not stretch your woolens by tying them around waist or hanging them on shoulders.
I hope that these tips above will be useful for you to protect your children clothes in winter.
