Colvin February 2016 Newsletter: Sweaters and Drapes!
Reasons You Should Dry Clean Your Sweaters. 1. The ability to properly clean and care for your sweater collection could very well add many years to the lifespan of each sweater you own.
2. Heat can easily damage wool fibers, as can water and bleach. So, putting wool sweaters in a washing machine is the last thing you want to do. The best way to treat wrinkles in wool is by using steam, and the best way to wash wool sweaters of stains or dirt is to get them dry cleaned.
3. The best way to preserve the color and texture of your wool sweaters is to get them dry cleaned in chemical free cleaner, like GreenEarth. This cleaner is gentle on clothes, odor free and environmentally friendly.
#ColvinInTheCommunity True Bethel Baptist Church rolled out its “Shepherd’s Closet” bus, handing out gloves, hats and scarves to children waiting for school buses and others on city streets. Donations of items to give away on the bus have come from church members as well as people all over the city. The clothing racks were donated and installed by Colvin Cleaners.
