Now that you’ve stocked up your sweater collection, you need to keep those precious investments alive and looking great. The last thing anyone wants to be caught dead in is a pilling, sloppy mess. Keep reading for eight of our sweater care tips.
- Ah, pilling. It will happen, unfortunately. You can remove those annoying fuzzballs with a Bic razor (yep, shave that baby) or a manual pill remover. Pro tip: Turn on the TV so you can catch up on your shows while getting the work done.
- Never hang sweaters. Ya hear? Never. If you do, it will stretch the fibers out, and you’ll end up with giant misshapen shoulders which is not a good lewk. Fold or roll them instead.
- How should you hand wash your precious? Submerge your sweater in cool water with gentle detergent and give it a few good swishes. Let the sweater soak for about thirty minutes, then rinse well.
- Another note on washing… Don’t wring anything; be nice to your hardworking sweater. We would recommend that you gently squeeze, lay flat on a dry towel, and then roll that sucker up. The towel will absorb excess moisture.
- Should you wash your sweater? Unless you’re wearing the sweater to a Soul Cycle class or finishing a pack of cigarettes, the general rule is to wash about every four wears.
