Clothing and shoe care

How to care for your clothes properly, how to look after all different types of clothing - which hangers to use, how to wash and clean items. How to clean and care for your shoes.


If you look after your clothes then they will last longer. If you wash them carefully you can make them last longer and look better. If you know which hangers to hang clothing on your clothes will stay looking ironed for longer.

General clothing care hints

  • Look after your clothes even when they're dirty. Don't throw them on the bedroom floor - you can easily damage clothes by standing on them.
  • Be proactive in getting boots and shoes reheeled. Don't leave it until it's too late.
  • Look at the washing instructions - don't assume it'll just go in the wash with everything else. Follow the instructions too - ignore them at your peril!
  • Hang your clothes on the right hanger. If possible get hold of some padded hangers for tops, it helps them stay in shape better.
  • Buy fluff removers and use them.
  • Get a good quality clothes brush.
  • Always clean your shoes before you put them away, putting damp and dirty shoes away could cause mould to ruin shoes.
  • Have shoes reheeled before they're permanently damaged.
  • Put suits away in special suit bags to prevent them getting dusty if you're not going to wear them for a while.
  • Don't wear the same item for days at a time. Fabric should be given time to rest to allow them to keep their shape.

Washing symbols

The washing tub is one you'll almost certainly recognise. It will contain information about the washing instructions. It may contain a temperature - eg: 95' for cottoms
Lines underneath mean synthetics and should be washed at cooler temperatures. A broken line indicates the item is wool and should be washed on a wool wash.

Washing machine controls Look at your washing machine controls and you'll see the different washes available. It'll usually indicate temperature and washing intnsity. Some machines also let you vary speed of spin - which is useful for delicates.

 



If you use too high a temperature then you may ruin your clothes. Jumpers and knitwear can shrink massively.
Lower temperatures save you energy but you'll need to look at the washing powder to ensure it is suitable for low temperature washes.

A hand in the wash bowl means hand wash only.
A cross through the wash bowl means do not wash.

tumble dryer instructions

This symbol indicates the garment can be tumble dried. One dot in the centre means low temperature and two means high. A cross through it means it should not be tumble dried.

This means the garment can be ironed. A hot iron is indicated by 3 dots, warm by two and cool by one. A cross through means do not iron.
A wavy line underneath the iron indicates steam can be used.

Mould Removal - I've been readiong tips as diverse as using a tiny bit of bathroom mould cleaner, lemon juice and white vinegar, sterliser liquid, bleach. Test first though to avoid damaging fabrics.

Once cleaned ensuring the clothing is completely dry and kept in a damp free place will prevent more problems.

If lots of clothes in your wardrobe become mouldy then look for the reason why. Have you put shoes away that were damp? Is there damp in the back of the wardrobe? Do you need to move the wardrobe? Clear it out and ensure you get all the problem items out - de-mould and then put less back in and always put dry clean clothes away - never wet or damp items.
