5 Ways to Care for Your Pullover
Read the Care Label
Before washing your pullover, read the care label to ensure you’re washing it correctly. Different fabrics require different cleaning methods, and failure to follow the care label can damage your pullover. If the care label recommends hand washing, avoid using the washing machine, as it can cause damage to the fabric.
Wash in Cold Water
When washing your pullover, use cold water as this helps to preserve the quality of the fabric. High temperatures can cause the fibers to shrink and may damage the elasticity of the fabric. Also, remember to use a mild detergent that’s gentle on the fibers.
Air Dry Your Pullover
One of the best ways to care for your pullover is by air drying it. Avoid using the dryer as heat can damage the fabric and cause shrinkage. Instead, lay the pullover flat on a dry towel in a cool, well-ventilated area. Avoid hanging your pullover as this can cause it to stretch out of shape.
Store Your Pullover Carefully
When it comes to storing your pullover, avoid hanging it in the closet for long periods as this can cause it to stretch out of shape. Instead, neatly fold your pullover and place it on a shelf or in a drawer. If you want to keep your pullover hanging, make sure it’s not on a tight hanger that can put pressure on the shoulders.
Treat Stains Immediately
If your pullover gets stained, don’t wait to treat it as the longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove the stain. Immediately blot the stain with a clean cloth and apply a suitable stain removal solution. Test the solution on a small area first to ensure it doesn’t cause any damage to the fabric.
