Owning and wearing high end fashion clothing is exciting and fun, but do you know how to properly care for your items? Read this article to find several tips for everyday care, stain treatment, and storage solutions.
Many high quality fashion clothes can be worn several times between washings or dry cleanings, if gently cared for while wearing.
Proper selection of clothing for your region’s climate and daily weather is an important first step. For example, it’s best not to wear linen or silk on a rainy day since it may shrink or get water stains.
Another consideration in the daily care of your fashion clothing is functionality. Choosing the right fabric and fit for a specific activity will reduce the likelihood of stains, tears, and smells. If you think you may engage in some sports-like activity, wear lose fitting items that are breathable — cotton and sometimes wool are a good choice. If you enjoy smoking cigars, pipes, or cigarettes, you may find that allowing your clothes to air outdoors will reduce the tobacco smell after use.
Finally, always be sure to use the proper wash settings or dry clean your clothing for optimal results. Read the labels or ask a sales representative if you’re not sure.
Stains on fabrics are the unfortunate result of spills and encounters with dirty surfaces. The treatment of a stain varies greatly depending on the type of material and the type of stain. If you get a stain, it’s best to treat it right away. However, if you’re not sure how to clean it or don’t notice for some time, our team is able to help with even the toughest of stains.
Finding the best method for storing fashion items will yield stunning results. Your high end clothing and accessories will appear like new if properly store.
One solution is to store these items on-site in your home or closet. A cool, dry, dark place will give the best results to avoid moisture damage, insect infestation, and sun fading. Hanging clothes in a storage closet with a protective covering will reduce creases and wrinkles that may be difficult to remove later.
Another solution to store clothing is to use an off-site garment storage service. Cameo Cleaners offers such a service which includes personalized preparation of your items and storage in our climate controlled facilities. This option frees up space in your closet and gives you peace of mind knowing your off-season fashion items are being well maintained.
