Some handy hints on the care of your garments.
Allow garments to air and dry before putting them away.
Allow mud to dry on skirts before gently brushing off with a soft bristled brush.
Store garments away from direct sunlight to protect from fading and in a dry place to prevent mould.
Check garments from time to time to ensure no mould or moths are present.
Use lavender bags or ceder wood to help prevent moths (Varous moth repellants can be purchased at Supermarkets and Iron Mongers etc)
Most of our garments are best stored flat rather than hung up so as to protect the shape and detailing.
If storing garments for a length of time you may wish to pack them with acid free tissue paper or as our forebears did wrapped in brown paper once all moth/mould and cleanliness issues have been checked.
Be very careful of delicate fabrics and details.
If at all unsure of the care of your garment please seek the advice of a professional garment cleaner.
