Clothing care tips
Read the label: Do you read the label to find out the best way to care for your clothes? You should. It’s important to follow the proper care instructions. Different fabrics require different cleaning methods. Follow the directions for washing and drying. Some clothes can’t even go in the washer or dryer. The directions are important not only to keep your clothes clean but also to ensure they continue to fit properly.
Leave stains to the professionals: If you get a stain on your clothes, take them to a dry cleaner for professional cleaning as soon as possible. Stains left too long can be impossible to remove. If you try to remove it yourself, you could make it worse.
Clean matching pieces together: It’s important to have matching pieces cleaned together even if you don’t think they both need cleaned. There could be a little color loss in the garment, though minimal, it can be noticeable.
We hope these tips help you look and feel like a Champion all year long.
