Clothing Selection and Care

529COPPLEY_25813_247_Final SLEEVEAlways read the care instruction label in the garment.

Wool knits and sweaters can be washed by hand, but dry cleaning is recommended for tailored garments.

For spot cleaning, quick action is the secret.

  1. Blot the stain with clean white tissue or cloth.
  2. Do not apply heat in any form: heat just makes stains more difficult to remove.
  3. Avoid hard rubbing.
  4. When using a spot cleaner, make sure that it is safe, given the fabric.
    (The best way to do this is to apply a small amount of the cleaner on an inconspicuous part of the garment.)
  5. Work from the edge of the stain inward to prevent spreading.
  6. Thoroughly rinse the cleaned area.
