Keep Winter Worries At Bay
Use a stiff clothes brush to remove surface debris, and spot-clean collars and cuffs with a damp cloth and mild soap.
Coats and Jackets
How often you should wash them: after six to seven wears. Your wool coats and jackets should be washed at the beginning and end of each season. Keep in mind that harsh detergents can wear the fabric out. To keep odours at bay, hang your coat in a place where air can circulate, not crushed in a crowded closet.
Gloves and Scarves
How often you should wash them: three to five times a season. These often-ignored items serve an important purpose and need to be taken care of too. They should be washed or dry-cleaned, three to five times every season, to get rid of sweat, dirt and tough stains.
Pants and Skirts
How often you should wash them: after five to seven wears. Wintery fabrics—tweed, wool, velvet—are fairly tough, but can be tricky to wash. All powder detergents contain soda, which can damage the woollen fabric. India’s leading detergent, Ezee, has a no-soda formulation which keeps your woollens five times* safer, compared to regular detergents.
Leather and Suede Jackets
How often you should wash them: once a season.
It’s time to pull the coats, gloves and jackets out of your closet. But, winter isn’t just about wearing these clothes, it’s also about taking care of them. We know it’s quite a task to maintain them, but here are a few pointers to help you take care
of each specific item, in the best possible way.
These hides are pretty durable, but annual cleaning should be left to an expert. Prevent make-up and perfume from staining the collar by wearing a scarf. How often you should wash them: after two to five wears. You should wash cotton, silk, and cashmere after two to three wears, since these pieces are more delicate. Wool and durable man-made blends, such as acrylic and polyester, can withstand five wears. Hand wash, of course, is the best option.
