Clothing Care: Garment care tips by fashion and style lovers, Ruby Slippers Styling. Personal Stylists in Sydney and Melbourne

Are your knits in bobble hell?

Argh, damn those little bobbles on your knits…nothing says ‘she’s didn’t buy cashmere’, like a sweater full of pills!

The little pills pop up on clothes that are higher in acrylic or polyester…but, before you head out shopping for a wardrobe full of cashmere, follow Ruby Slipper’s Stylist’s guide and get your knits looking good as new in no time:

Always machine wash cold or hand wash.

Avoid washing with items that have zips or buttons. If you are a serial washing offender then wash in a laundry bag or pillow case that fastens.

Air dry..the dryer is your enemy!

Don’t use pegs on the items, it will weaken the fabrics.

Use a knit comb, to remove any bobbles currently there.
