EXCLUSIVE POST: Clean And Preserve Wool & Cashmere At Home

EXCLUSIVE POST: Clean And Preserve Wool & Cashmere At Home

Last month, Club Monaco went #BeyondTheCrewneck with the launch of a cashmere collection that transcends the basics. We’ve invited The Laundress to share their expert tips on how to clean and care for these pieces at home.

Wool and cashmere knits don’t have to be dry clean only.  Washing them by hand actually helps to preserve the fibers. Not only will you save time and money, your favorite sweaters will last longer as well.

Follow the steps below to care for your wool and cashmere garments at home.

Step 1: Pretreat

Take The Sting Out Of Stains: Treat stains with The Laundress Stain Solution or The Laundress Wash & Stain Bar by applying the product directly to soiled spots and susceptible areas like underarms, necklines, and cuffs.

Say No To Odors: Mix ¼ cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar with tepid water and soak the items for 30 minutes. You'll enjoy the deodorizing and disinfecting benefits of white vinegar with a product that smells beautiful.

Put It In Reverse: Prepare to wash the garment by turning it inside out to avoid friction and fading. Wash with similar colors only.

Step 2: Handwash & Rinse

Draw A Bath: Add two capfuls of pH-neutral The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water. While other popular wool washes have a high pH level that is harsh on wool and cashmere, The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo is pH-neutral to protect delicate yarns.

Go Under: Submerge your items and gently agitate them with your hands to evenly distribute soap and water. Soak for up to 30 minutes.

Rinse Clear: Run cool water through the garments until rinse water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, gently press the water out of your items between your hands or against the sink.

Note: Don’t worry if color bleeds into the water. The yarn dye is simply releasing pigment, but it won’t cause the fabric to lose its vibrancy.  

OR Machine Wash

If you must wash in a machine, we recommend removing knits promptly from the washer to reduce creasing. Follow the steps below for the best results:

Bag It: Turn items inside out and place them in a Mesh Washing Bag to protect them from agitation and friction that can cause pilling.

Select Your Cycle: Select the woolens or delicate cycle on your washing machine and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low. Add The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo according to the machine type and load size.

Step 3: Dry & Finish

No-Rush Drying: Lay the items flat in their natural shape on a drying rack or clean towel. Avoid direct sunlight and heat sources such as a radiator, which can shrink or damage wool. Never hang wet wool. 

Quick Drying: Lay each garment flat on its own towel. With the item in its original shape, roll it up in the towel (like a sleeping bag) to remove the excess water.

Steam it Up & Stay Fresh: Ironing can crush or flatten the natural pile of the yarns. Instead, use steam to remove wrinkles, odors, and bacteria. You can also spritz The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Spray between wearing and washing. It's a safe, nontoxic, allergen-free fabric spray that naturally repels bugs and moths.

Step 4: Pills & Lint

_09O7178.jpg

Banish Pills: Remove pills on fine-gauge yarns by gliding The Laundress Sweater Comb across pilled areas. For heavier gauge items, glide The Laundress Sweater Stone over pilled areas. Always work tools in one direction.

Brush for Beauty: Use The Laundress Cashmere Brush between wears to remove lint or hair and release the fabric’s natural oils to rejuvenate yarns.

Step 5: Storage

Get Into The Fold: Always store knits folded to prevent stretching or distorting.

Keep Pests Away: Prevent bug and moth infestation by storing knits in a breathable cotton or canvas bag with a zip closure. Always clean items before storing to avoid providing a "food source" of proteins for bugs.

獨家博文: 在家清潔護理茄士咩羊絨

上月,Club Monaco推出全新茄士咩羊絨系列,將基本圓領上衣款式鍍上更尊貴的格調。這個星期我們邀請了The Laundress分享他們如何在家中清潔和護理這些茄士咩羊絨的專家建議。

羊毛和茄士咩羊絨的衣物不一定局限於乾洗。正確的手洗方式可延長衣物纖維的壽命,這不僅能節省時間和金錢,而你最喜歡的毛衣也能保養得更長久。

按照以下的步驟在家護理你的羊毛和茄士咩羊絨衣物。

第一步驟:預備處理

處理污漬:The Laundress去漬專用皂或The Laundress去漬清潔劑直接塗抹於污漬和一些比較容易有汗漬的地方,如腋下、衣領和袖口位置

去除氣味:把1/4 杯的The Laundress全效芳香潔淨液與溫水混合,浸泡30分鐘。你會享受到用白醋產品除味和消毒的芳香氣味。

把衣物內裏外翻:準備洗衣服前把它翻轉過來,以避免摩擦和褪色。只能與相似的顏色一同清洗。

第二步驟:手洗和沖洗

用盤洗滌:把兩蓋中性酸鹼值的The Laundress毛料衣物洗衣液添加到裝滿清水的洗滌盆中。其他一般流行的毛料衣物洗衣,它們的酸鹼值是偏高,而The Laundress的毛料衣物洗衣酸鹼值是中性,這可以保護脆弱的紗線。

浸泡:把衣物完全浸透在水中並用手輕輕攪動,讓水和洗衣液溶合。浸泡30分鐘。

沖洗清潔:把衣物用冷水沖洗直到沒有肥皂泡。不要扭擰衣物要輕輕地將水從你的手中或水槽中擠出。

注意:如果顏色滲入水中,請不要擔心。紗線染料只是釋放顏料,但不會導致織物失去亮麗。

或用洗衣機清洗

如果你必須使用洗衣機,我們建議你及時從墊圈上取下針織物,以減少摺痕。按照以下步驟獲得最佳效果:

入袋:把衣物翻轉過來,放入洗衣網袋,以防止攪動和摩擦引至起球。

選擇功能:選擇你洗衣機上的羊毛或小心處理的洗衣功能,並確保使用冷水和低旋轉度。根據洗衣機類型和裝載尺寸添加The Laundress毛料衣物洗衣液。

第三步驟:乾衣和最後加工

慢慢弄乾:把衣物平放在架子或乾淨的毛巾上。避免陽光直接照射和遠離熱源,如暖氣機,這可能會令衣物皺縮或損壞羊毛。切勿把仍濕的羊毛衣物掛起。

快速弄乾:把衣物各自地平放在毛巾上。跟隨衣物本身的外形平放,用毛巾(如睡袋般)捲起來除去多餘的水分。

蒸熨和保持清新:熨燙可以壓壞或壓扁自然的紗線。相反,使用蒸汽熨斗能去除皺紋,氣味和細菌。日常穿著和清洗時你也可以噴上The Laundress的毛料衣物香氛噴霧。這是一種安全,無毒,無過敏原的織物噴霧,可防止蟲子和衣蛾。

第四步驟:結絨和毛團

除掉結絨:使用The Laundress毛衣梳子輕刷結絨部分便可去除結絨; 比較厚實的衣物,可使用The Laundress毛衣石輕刷結絨部分。

刷淨整潔:日常穿著時,可用The Laundress茄士咩羊絨刷輕刷衣物,使毛衣釋放其天然油脂,並且去除線頭及灰塵。

第五步驟:收藏

接疊:需要以接疊方式來貯存針織衣物時,防止拉伸或扭曲。

防止蟲害:將針織衣物儲存在透氣的棉質或帆布袋中,並用拉鍊封口,這可以防止蟲子和衣蛾蛀食衣物。在儲存之前需要清潔衣物,避免為蟲子提供蛋白質的“食物來源”。
