Winter has officially arrived, and that means it’s time to reach into the back of your closet and dust off your winter coat. Cleaning a winter coat is a difficult but essential task, and to avoid any serious damage, it’s recommended that you take it to a professional. A dry cleaner can protect the fabric and help you stay warm all winter!
Ecological cleaning: A worry-free alternative
Throughout the winter, we wear our coats every day. Throughout the summer, our coats sit and accumulate dust. Over the years, sweat and dirt wear down the coat’s fibres, gradually affecting their waterproof and insulating properties. Therefore, it is essential to practice delicate yet effective cleaning techniques. Washing your coat at home requires a special knowledge of fabric composition and cleaning practices. Mishandling or misreading the label can cause permanent damage.An eco-friendly dry cleaner can provide green cleaning methods adapted to your specific coat. By leaving your coat in the hands of a professional, you can ensure it will receive the proper care.
A personalized and eco-friendly cleaning
When you take your coat to a green dry cleaner, it’s important to communicate certain details, like how long you’ve owned the coat, its fabric composition and any defects. It is highly recommended you treat stains immediately. If you tend to get messy, an anti-stain treatment is a good solution to protect your coat from accidental spills. This treatment improves the fabric’s resistance to stains and protects it from damage caused by salt and mud.
Unfortunately, professional dry cleaning is not enough to protect your coat from everyday wear and tear. One thing you can do at home is to hang your coat after a day in the snow, and always store it in a dry place.During the off-season, avoid stuffing your coat into a plastic bag. Instead, place it on a hanger to promote air circulation and prevent it from drying out. You can also apply waterproofing treatments that will protect it from moisture.By adopting these simple techniques, your coat will surely survive many winters. And your wallet will thank you!
