Good quality woollen clothes are expensive. Obviously, you cannot toss away your woollen clothes after one winter. To get the best return on your investment, you must wash and store them properly. An improper washing technique and line-drying can make your woollen sweaters lose their softness and shape. Always read and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

It is essential to know how to take care of your woollen clothes to make them last longer. Follow these useful steps.

Ingredients to Keep Handy:

a) Mesh bag

b) Mild detergent

c) Vinegar

d) Fabric conditioner

  1. Step 1: Run a Gentle Cycle

    Put your woollen sweater in a mesh bag if it has delicate buttons or embroidery, before putting it into the washing machine. Use a gentle cycle and a cold-water setting. Hot water can cause your sweater to lose shape and damage its fabric. Delicate garments made from wool require extra care and using a mild detergent can work wonders. We recommend Love and Care, which is available in the market.

  2. Step 2: Add Vinegar

    Before starting the wash cycle, add a cup of vinegar to the washing machine drum. Vinegar will help preserve the brightness and colour of your sweater. Do not put your woollen sweater in the dryer. The heat can ruin your sweater completely.  

  3. Step 3: Use Fabric Conditioner

    Take out your woollen sweater from the washing machine and soak it in a bucket of water. Add a few drops of fabric softener to the bucket. Now leave the sweater in the bucket. You can use a fabric conditioner such as Comfort Core. It is easily available in the market. It keeps the fibres intact, thus making the fabric soft and smooth. It also adds a mild fragrance to the fabric. The fabric conditioner will soften your woollen sweater. 

  4. Step 4: Flat-Dry

    Do not put your woollen sweater under direct sunlight for drying. Flat-dry it in a shaded place. This will prevent discolouration of your sweater.
