Remember, when it comes to your winter weather gear, it doesn’t need to be washed after every wear unless it’s really dirty. When you do wash your clothes, we always recommend our Homage360+ for keeping your clothing looking great all year long! Find it and our other products here.
For down or puffy winter coats
For wool coats
Use a lint or suede brush after wearing them to remove surface soil and lint. For stains, blot the area with cold water or club soda using paper towels or a soft cloth. Hang them on wood hangers so their weight doesn't stretch the shoulder area of your coat. Dry clean at the beginning and end of the winter season to help them stay gorgeous for years to come.
For snow gloves
For leather gloves
Wipe clean with a damp cloth when dirty. Once a season, get your leather gloves dry cleaned.
First, don’t hang sweaters. It stretches them out and can leave bumps in your shoulders from the hangers. Instead, store in drawers or on shelves, folded. The best thing for natural fibers is always to store them in or with cedar. If you have a cedar lined closet, you know how amazing they are for storing things like wool and cashmere! If you don’t have this luxury, you can get cedar sachets and blocks almost anywhere for use in your closet and drawers.
