Cure and care for your winter clothes

For most of us, the care-labels inside our wearables generally come as nothing more than a source of itch and discomfort. The tiny fonts threaded with ambiguous icons never really made much sense to any of us, and so we love to be done with them with a slice of scissors, mostly right after bringing the clothes home, forgetting the fact that the labels actually contain valuable information and direction on how to properly wash and maintain the fabric for longevity. Especially, when it comes to warm winter clothes made of unique fabrics and other exclusive garment components, obtaining typical means of washing can sometimes result in totally irreparable consequences.

Now that the winter is finally beginning to spread its smoggy veil all across the country, it is quite common in every household to feel the need to bring the warmest of clothing items and dry them out in the sun before putting on them. But if we followed the right directions for washing winter clothes made of special components, we could opt for a thorough cleaning of our favorite shawls and scarves, and wear them more confidently.

Besides lack of knowledge on how to take care of woolen fabrics, the coldness of regular tap water can also be bothersome for many to engage in dipping and rinsing of clothes that are relatively heavier. But considering the dampness generated inside winter clothes due to humidity, which can also attract insects and germs, it is recommended that we wash these wearables at least for once before wearing. Washing clothes in regular volumes during other seasons may as well seem easy, but as even the volume also increases with us having to put up 3 layers of clothes in total – washing can turn out to be quite a hassle for busy city-dwellers!  Fortunately for those willing to care for their clothes equally as they care for their health – now there are washing machines in the market with dedicated features that offer an added touch of delicacy in the otherwise rough-n-tough action of getting rid of the dust and germs.

Fortunately, the time has changed, and technology has evolved, making our lives easier and convenient. Washing machines, one of the marvels of science, have made it easier to clean lots of garments quickly and oversized clothes frequently. For instance, modern top loader washing machine offers a perfect blend of cure and care for your favorite winter wearables. Besides banking on Digital Inverter Technology for sustainable uses (consuming up to 40 percent less energy!), the washing machine comes with technological features that prevent clothes from getting tangled and damaged. On top of that, there is also a feature called ‘Hygiene Steam’ facility, which enables washing at 60 degrees Celsius to kill 99.9 percent of bacteria, and remove stubborn and oily stains for a perfect wash.
