Fall Clothing Care 101
Your wardrobe is an investment so it is important to take care when laundry day rolls around. Make sure it lasts by taking the time to protect it from the elements this fall.
Water won’t damage high-end wool or cashmere as long as it’s taken care of once back inside. Don’t leave your wet sweater to hang. It’ll end up stretched at the shoulders. Lay it out on a drying rack instead and give it time to dry properly.
Never store your coat before it’s completely dry or you’ll be left with a musty smell. Hanging it on a cedar hanger will keep moths away without the smell of mothballs.
Don’t leave your shoes over a heater or out in the sun to dry. You’re guaranteed to fade or damage the material in the long run. Instead, stuff them with newspapers and let them dry on their own.
