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.

Sweaters

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.
