If the dirty clothes are not changed, it will not only affect the appearance of the clothes, but also affect the elasticity, breathability, warmth and reduce the fastness of the clothes. How to maintain various clothes? How to wash all kinds of clothing and how to maintain all kinds of fabrics? I believe that many of my friends don't know enough. Twill Dyed Fabric manufacturer collected a variety of washing and maintenance methods for everyone here. Collect them now! It will be of great help to everyone!


1. Cotton fabric

Cotton fabric has strong alkali resistance, acid resistance, high temperature resistance, and can be washed with various soaps or detergents. Before washing, it can be soaked in water for several minutes, but it should not be too long, so as not to damage the color. Underwear cannot be soaked in hot water to prevent the protein in sweat stains from solidifying and sticking to clothing, and yellow sweat spots will appear.

When washing with detergent, the optimal water temperature is 40-50°C. When rinsing, you can master the method of “small amount and many times”. For example, when washing Plain Printed Cotton Fabric, it is not necessary to use a lot of water for each rinse; After each rinse, it should be wrung out and then rinsed a second time to improve the washing efficiency. Dry clothes in a cool, ventilated place to prevent exposure to sunlight and discoloration of colored fabrics.

2. Hemp fiber fabric

Hemp fiber is stiff and has poor cohesion. It should be lighter than cotton fabrics when washing. Avoid using hard brushes and rubbing hard to avoid lint on the cloth surface. Do not twist with force after washing. Do not scald colored fabrics with hot water. Do not expose them to sunlight to avoid discoloration.


3. Silk fabric

Before washing, soak in water for about 10 minutes, soaking time should not be too long. Do not wash with alkaline water, you can choose neutral soap or soap tablets, neutral detergent. The bath liquid is preferably slightly lukewarm or room temperature. After washing, gently squeeze the water and avoid twisting. It should be dried in a cool and ventilated place. It should not be exposed to the sun, and it should not be dried.


4. Wool fabric

Wool is not alkali-resistant, so use neutral detergent or soap flakes for washing. Wool fabrics must shrink and deform in an aqueous solution above 30°C, so the temperature of the washing bath should not exceed 40°C. Aqueous detergent solutions are usually formulated with room temperature (25°C) water. Do not scrub with a washboard when washing. Even if you use a washing machine, you should wash lightly. The washing time should not be too long to prevent lint.

Do not twist after washing, squeeze by hand to remove water, and drain. It is advisable to use a washing machine for half a minute. It should be dried in a cool and ventilated place, and not exposed to strong sunlight to prevent the fabric from losing its luster and elasticity and causing a strong decline.


5. Polyester fabric

First soak in cold water for 15 minutes, and then wash with general synthetic detergent. The temperature of the washing liquid should not exceed 45°C. The neckline and cuffs can be cleaned with a brush. After washing, rinse well, gently twist, dry in a cool and ventilated place, do not expose to sunlight, and do not dry, so as to avoid wrinkles due to heat. Common polyester fabrics include Polyester Plain Grey Fabrics.


6. Acrylic fabric

Basically similar to polyester fabric washing. Soak it in warm water for 15 minutes, then wash it with a low-alkali detergent, rubbing gently. Thick fabrics are washed with a soft-bristle brush, and finally dehydrated or gently wringed off moisture. Pure eyeglass fabrics can be air-dried, but blended fabrics should be dried in a cool place.
