Laundering Embroidered Trousers Safely - Articles Surfing
Keeping your clothing in great working order is not always an easy feat. Sure, toss clothes in the washing machine, add detergent, and then punch a couple buttons. This is a popular method, but it is not going to get you the most out of your apparel. For example, embroidered trousers are extremely popular, and if you do not treat these as delicate, they will not last past one or two washings looking as good as they did when you bought them.
Laundering embroidered trousers safely means you will be getting more for your money as well as your time. Getting more is easy, but you have to take precautions to insure that special care is taken whenever you stay a load of laundry or starting folding your clean clothing.
The first step is insuring your washing machine is prepared for the delicate laundry. Run a complete cycle in the machine on maximum load with a cup of apple cider vinegar. This should get the ball rolling.
The second step is to remove the center piece if possible. Once removed, simply clean with dish soap and hot water in the utility sink. You will want to use a toothbrush, q-tips, and anything else you have on hand that will insure you get every nook and cranny. Once washed, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
The third step is to actually wipe down the washing machine inside and out. You will find you can clean the corners and around the lid with a toothbrush if needed. Wipe down the entire drum area with a moist, clean washrag.
If you happen to have rust issues in your household, you will find there are many rust removers that will aid you in this endeavor. Check out a local retailer for the best solution for removing rust from your washing machine.
Once you have thoroughly cleaned the whole washing machine, you will be able to reattach parts you took off, and you are ready to launder your embroidered trousers, shirts, or other apparel. A clean washing machine is going to insure your laundry is not coming out dirtier than when it went in. After all, you clean your kitchen sink and your bathroom? Why would you not clean your washing machine?
When it comes to actually laundering your delicates, a clean washing machine is a good place to start.
An important tip is you should not always rely on the label. Yes, the manufacturer's instructions may have worked for the pants or shirts, but you will find that those same instructions did not necessarily include the embroidery. If you are not sure, you can generally contact the company or manufacturer to see if the label includes that special beading. In addition, this is a good time to check out the customer service of the company you are using.
Many people choose to home wash their specialty items, but there are times when you need to seek the assistance of a professional dry cleaner. Never assume a dry cleaner will notice your beading or your stitchery. Instead, always plan on pointing out the finer points of those embroidered trousers, shirts, or other specialty clothes. Your laundry will thank you!
