Preserve Your Graduation Dress with Fabric Conditioner

To keep your graduation gown looking grad-ready and preserve the colour and quality of the garment, try these tips using Comfort’s range of fabric conditioners to keep your clothes looking fantastic.

Give Your Graduation Gown the Best Care

From machine washing and sunlight exposure to natural wear and tear, there are so many factors that can affect the look and feel of your graduation dress. But fortunately, with a high-quality fabric softener like Comfort and our tips, you can preserve your graduation dress and keep it looking and feeling its best for longer. Here’s how.

Why Comfort Can Help Preserve Your Grad Gown

#1 – With Pro-Fibre technology, Comfort’s fabric conditioner range helps to prevent fading, shrinking, and other damage to the fibres of your laundry items during the wash cycle, for clothes that look like new for longer and smell delightful.

#2 - Fabric conditioners like Comfort also help to protect delicate fabrics through the thin layer of lubrication the conditioner creates on the fabric fibres. This layer helps make the fibres less likely to rub against each other and damage the clothing. Which is great for delicate fabrics like those often used in graduation dresses.

#3 - Including a Comfort fabric conditioner when you wash your grad gown will help your garment to have less static and maintain its shape for longer, keep it super soft, and make it easier to iron.

#4 - The Pro-Fibre technology in Comfort’s fabric conditioners help to keep the colours of your garments bright and bold. This, all to help your graduation gown look like it’s straight from the store for much longer.

How to Keep Your Grad Dress Looking Great With Comfort

With all fabrics, when it comes to washing, a golden rule is to always begin by checking the care label instructions, to guide you on the best ways to clean your garments. If the care label on your graduation dress does allow you to use fabric conditioner, then go ahead and grab your favourite bottle of Comfort.

To use Comfort fabric conditioner when hand washing your graduation dress: After washing your gown, you can let it soak in cold water with half a cup of comfort (depending on the dosage instructions) for a few minutes before hanging your gown to dry.

To use Comfort fabric conditioner to wash your gown with a washing machine: Depending on the dosage instructions, add a capful of fabric softener to your washing machine during the final rinse cycle.

Hang your dress to dry in a cool and dry area and iron only if necessary. Then enjoy the blissful scents of Comfort fabric conditioner bursting from your gown.

With the incredible Comfort fabric conditioner range, you’ve got the perfect product to preserve your graduation dress and keep it looking, feeling, and smelling amazing for longer.
