Instructions

  1. 1

    Read and follow label instructions for the care of each garment.

  2. 2

    Hang garments in a steamy bathroom after wearing or unpacking to help remove wrinkles.

  3. 3

    Hang garments on padded hangers between uses for 24 hours to smooth out wrinkles and restore original shape.

  4. 4

    Store garments in a well-ventilated closet with fresh cedar blocks to keep the moths away. Fold knits, or hang with closures zipped or buttoned.

  5. 5

    Dry the garment at room temperature if you accidentally get it wet. Keep it away from heat.

  6. 6

    Remove surface soil with a brush or a damp sponge.

  7. 7

    Dry clean in the summer before storing, or immediately after you get a stain - whichever comes first.
