When the season changes, you will always take out last year's old work clothes to wear, but can you still wear your old clothes? The general preservation methods of work clothes are divided into many kinds of fabrics, whether it is chemical fiber or cotton and linen. When you store them, you must clean them first.

1. Cotton and linen overalls.



When storing, the clothes should be washed, dried, and folded flat. The closets, cabinets, and polythene bags should be kept clean and dry to prevent mildew. It is better to separate the white clothes from the dark clothes when storing to prevent staining or yellowing.



2. Silk work clothes.



When collecting, in order to prevent moisture and dust, a layer of cotton cloth should be covered on the clothing surface or the silk clothing should be wrapped well. White clothing should not be placed in the camphor wood box or camphor balls, otherwise, it is easy to turn yellow.



3. Woolen work clothes.



After wearing for a period of time, all kinds of woolen clothing should be dried and patted to remove dust. When not wearing, it should be placed in a dry place. It is suitable to hang and store, and the reverse side of the fabric should be turned out to prevent fading, weathering, and wind print. Before storage, it should be brushed or washed, ironed, dried, ventilated, and put in the air for one day. High-grade woolen clothing is best hung in the wardrobe, not stacked, so as not to affect the appearance due to deformation When putting the whole wool or blended clothing, the camphor pill should be wrapped with tissue paper and put in the pocket of the clothes or in the wardrobe or box. The plush clothing should be separated from other clothing to avoid falling down and contaminating other clothing.



4. Chemical fiber work clothes.



Man-made fiber clothing should be placed flat, not long-term hanging, so as to avoid elongation due to draping. When storing the blended fabric clothing containing natural fiber, a small amount of camphor pill or insect remover can be put, but do not touch it. For synthetic fiber clothing such as polyester and nylon, camphor pill is not needed, and sanitary balls are not allowed, so as to avoid the damage to clothing and fabric caused by Dinaphthol.



Above we learned the four types of fabric storage precautions. The same is true for flame retardant clothing, which should be stored carefully according to the fabric composition. Finally, we wish you all a safe and happy work!
