Laundry Hints and Tips

  • Never iron a soiled item of clothing.
  • Try not to let perfume and hairspray come into contact with your clothes.
  • Perspiration stains, if left, can permanently discolour and weaken fabric.
  • Never rub a stain out of silk - just blot it.
  • Home remedies can damage your clothes.
  • Don't hang white fabrics in the sun as this can cause them to turn yellow.
  • Store your clothes in a dry and well-ventilated area.
  • Never store clothes in their plastic covers and, above all...
  • Read washing and dry-cleaning labels carefully.
