Don’t know how to clean corduroy garments? Check out these simple steps!

It is of utmost importance to take care of these garments while washing them. You can keep your corduroy garments looking like new ones after each wear by giving them some special attention. Here are some tips:

Don’t wash corduroy with any material that’s made from lint, fleece, felt or terry.

Step 1:

Corduroy attracts lint. So, while washing such garments, turn them inside out to protect the textured side from matting down.

Step 2:

Read the label to check whether the fabric is washable in a machine.

Step 3:

Keep the garments’ colour in mind while choosing the water temperature. It is best to use cold water for all the loads. Wash dark coloured clothes separately from the light coloured ones. Choose a gentle cycle.

Step 4:

Let the garments stay for ten minutes on extra-low cycle in the dryer to fluff the nap of the corduroy and make them soft.

Step 5:

Hang the garment to dry. Avoid ironing it once it’s dry. If you need to wear it immediately, iron them inside out.
