The holidays are a wonderful time to relax, enjoy delicious foods and treats, and spend some much needed time reconnecting with family. They're also a chance for all of us to break out some of the nicer pieces in our wardrobes and show off some of our finest clothes. However, caring for holiday garments and fine fabrics can be tricky, and it's all too easy to damage these clothes by mistreating them. With care, though, your holiday garments will last you years, giving you the pleasure of wearing them for many more holidays to come.
Listen To The Labels
Without a doubt, the most important part of caring for holiday garments is to read and follow the instructions on the label. The symbols included on the laundry tag of an article of clothing each have a distinct meaning, and it's critical to follow them in order to properly care for the clothing. Every item is different – some may be perfect for tumble drying, while others may be ruined by it – so it's important to pay close attention to the instructions on the label.
You can use this guide to decipher the laundry care symbols, also just called care symbols, on your holiday garments. A great tip for traveling is to print out this guide and attach it to the inside of your suitcase. That way, it'll be easy to reference when you have the opportunity to clean your clothes.
