In winter, a warm cashmere sweater is the favorite of many people. It is light and warm, and has a very good effect in keeping out the cold, but it's quite troublesome to clean. So how to clean the cashmere sweater?
How to wash cashmere sweater
1. Do wash it by hand
Inside the cashmere sweater, there is a small label printed with maintenance and washing instructions. Careful people will find that 90% of cashmere sweaters are marked to be hand washed, and dry cleaning is forbidden, because the liquid medicine used for dry cleaning will affect the warmth retention and aging the fabric. However, the cashmere sweater after machine washing and drying and being twisted can easily lead to uneven thickness of the filler, which can make the clothes out of shape and affect the beauty and warmth retention.
2. 30 ℃ water temperature rinsing
First, soak the cashmere sweater in cold water for 20 minutes to make the inside and outside of the cashmere sweater fully wet. Dissolve the detergent in 30 ℃ warm water, soak the cashmere sweater in it for a quarter of an hour, and then brush it gently with a soft brush. It is also necessary to use warm water to rinse, which is conducive to the detergent fully dissolving in the water, and can make the cashmere sweater rinse cleaner.
3. The concentration of detergent should not be too high
If it is necessary to wash cashmere sweater with washing powder, it is usually advisable to put 4 to 5 tablespoons of washing powder into two washbasins of water. If the concentration is too high, it is difficult to rinse. The residual washing powder in down will affect the fluffy degree of down and greatly reduce the warmth retention.
4. Neutral detergent is best
Neutral detergent has the least damage to clothing and down. If alkaline detergent is used, the residual detergent will cause damage to cashmere sweater if it is not rinsed clean, and it is easy to leave white traces on the surface of clothes, affecting the appearance. To remove the residual alkaline detergent, add two spoonfuls of vinegar into the warm water after rinsing twice, soak the cashmere sweater for a while and then rinse it. The vinegar can neutralize the alkaline detergent.
5. Do not screw too dry
After the cashmere sweater is washed, it should not be wrung too dry. It should squeeze out the water and then lay it flat or hang it to dry. It is forbidden to expose it to the sun or iron it to avoid scalding the clothes. After drying, it can be gently patted to make the cashmere sweater return to fluffy and soft.
