Wearing head-to-toe in white is a simultaneously understated and bold style. It can also be a challenge to live with especially when it comes to fabric care. Before you put on the most stylish white garments, take a look at the following essential fabric tips and preventive measures.
1. Wash them every one or two wears
As body oil and perspiration accumulate every time you wear your favourite white garment, these two causes can turn fabrics yellow or grey. We, therefore, recommend you wash the white items every one or two wears.
2. Wear a scarf over your neck
When you pull that stark white blouse over your head, half your make-up foundation is now smeared around the neckline. Cover your face with an inexpensive scarf while fitting. Just a thin silk scarf makes the difference. In Japan, it’s commonly known the retail shops provide non-woven face covers that prevent new clothes from getting stains. These facial covers are only available in the women’s fitting room.
3. Address stains quickly
Either for white or other coloured items, treat the stains as soon as possible before they become permanent.
4. Always wash white clothes separately
One of the major causes of white shirts going grey or looking dull is putting white clothes together with other coloured clothes in one lot. The solution? Just wash your white clothes separately from everything else, even if it’s a smaller load.
