When it comes to keeping your clothing looking its best, proper washing and care is key. Whether you're dealing with dress shirts, suits, or casual wear, different fabrics require different treatments. Here, we'll explore some of the most common fabrics and the best ways to care for them.

Your clothing is an investment and the way in which you wash and care for them makes all the difference in how it will perform over the years.

For example for a wool suit it is important to not over clean it as the chemicals at the dry cleaners can be harmful to the fibers of the garment. To help the garment stay clean it helps to use a suit brush to gently brush off any dirt or debris that may have gotten embedded in the cloth.

Wool and Cashmere:

These delicate fabrics are best suited for dry cleaning. Dry cleaning uses a chemical spray to clean the clothes, as opposed to traditional washing methods. This is because the fibers in wool and cashmere are too delicate to withstand the agitation and heat of a traditional wash. When you bring your wool or cashmere garments to the dry cleaners, make sure they are using industrial machines that are specifically designed to handle these delicate fabrics.


Cotton is a durable and breathable fabric that is easy to care for. Machine washing cotton in cold water on a gentle cycle is usually sufficient. With each wash cycle cottons tend to get softer and form a softer hand which is why often some of our favorite garments are the ones that have been well worn and washed.

Dress Shirts:

Our Dress shirts are typically made from cotton. To keep them looking their best, it is important to have them cleaned by professionals who use industrial machines to properly wash and press the shirts. This will help to keep the shirts looking crisp and new, especially in the collars and cuffs.

In conclusion, proper care and washing of your clothing can help to extend its life and keep it looking its best. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your clothing stays in top condition for years to come.
