Are you partied-out this holiday season? Have your finest party items endured as well? Even the heartiest holiday reveler must pause to deal with an occasional party mishap or clothing care decision. Take heed of these clothing care tips and chances are you’ll be ready to ring in the New Year!
Before the first holiday party, my closet said to me, “Why not wear this cheery red wool suit?” But when I put on I was crushed by how crushed it was. What’s a quick rejuvenation for wool?
Answer: Hang it in a steamy bathroom. The moisture from the steam will remove the wrinkles.
At the second holiday party, my boss said to me, “Please forgive me, I just spilled wine on your beautiful silk blouse.” Should I take care of the spot immediately? How?
Answer: Blot it, don’t rub. Light areas can develop from rubbing which cleaning may not be able to remove. Bring it to us as soon as possible.
Before the third holiday party, my best friend said to me, “That’s a dazzling sequin outfit.” But how am I going to keep the sequins from falling off?
Answer: If the sequins are sewn on rather than glued on, the risk of losing some of that glitter is minimal. Best to check before purchasing.
