Care and maintenance
Washing a man's garment always requires a certain knowledge of some basic rules, useful not only in practice but also to obtain an impeccable final result. First of all it is always advisable to check the label on the inside, where you will find written if the garment is to be washed in the washing machine or by hand. Then we will analyze according to the degree of dirt or stains the behavior to be adopted.
If there are stains on your garment, the first thing to do is to pre-treat the fabric by hand with Marseille soap (or with specific products known as stain release products), avoiding rubbing too vigorously. Then, go on to the washing operation by hand or in the washing machine according to the label.
Temperature in the washing machine
Always choose the temperature of the machine wash carefully. Usually this should not exceed 30-40 degrees centigrade. The exact value is however usually shown on either side of the label.
Detergents and bleaches
Very important is the choice of the most suitable detergent. With dark colours, moreover, it is advisable to button the garments and inside out, so as to preserve the integrity of the colour. With regard to bleach, on the other hand, its use should certainly be avoided, otherwise the fabric, especially the most delicate and fragile one, will deteriorate immediately.
To obtain a garment without too many folds, it is better to use a clothes hanger rather than a dryer. The latter would in fact lead to a safe shrinkage of the garment, while a clothes hanger, on the contrary, will facilitate the subsequent ironing operation, saving time and a better final result.
