Keep It Clean: Proper Care For Luxury Clothing
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You do what you need to look your best, but what about your clothes? These care tips from the style experts at Coleson Fine Clothiers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania will keep your fine clothing looking like new.

Wool Coats

Your wool coat should typically be dry cleaned twice a year—at the beginning of winter and again at the end of the season. When the latter’s complete, store it in a garment bag to protect it from insects that feed on wool.

In between trips to the cleaners, you can keep your wool coat looking fresh—and keep dirt and dust at bay—by taking a clothes brush to it. Brush in one direction, starting at the top and working down, whenever it starts to look a little dull.

Corduroy

A blazer should go straight to the dry cleaner, but you can try washing corduroy pants at home. Turn the pants inside out to protect the textured side, and wash them (cold water, gentle cycle) separately from the rest of your laundry because corduroy attracts lint.

Hang the pants to dry, or tumble-dry on a low setting for 10 minutes, then shake the wrinkles out and hang them to dry the rest of the way. No ironing necessary!

Suede Boots

When it comes to cleaning suede footwear, the old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” definitely applies.

Treating suede boots with a protective spray when you first get them will help to repel water and prevent stains. If it’s too late for that, you can take the boots to a dry cleaner (call first to see if the establishment works with suede) or pick up a suede care kit and clean them at home. Simply brush the boots, in one direction, with a suede brush and watch the dirt disappear and the nap come back to life.

If the boots aren’t too dirty, this may be all you need. For stubborn stains and deeply embedded dirt, use a suede eraser (often available in a kit with the brush), which will crumble as you rub it across the surface of the boot. When you’re done, give the boots a final brush and treat them with a protective spray so that you’ll have less cleaning to do next time.

When your wardrobe needs a refresh, stop by Coleson Fine Clothiers at 36 N Queen St, Lancaster, PA 17603 or call 717-394-8842 to speak to one of our style experts.
