CARE OF ONE’S CLOTHES
1. Make sure you put your clothes on a hanger when you get undressed at night if they are going to be worn again. Put everything else into the hamper to be washed. Never just put your clothes into the floor.
2. Prevent getting food stains on your shirts or blouses.
3. Dab ice water or seltzer onto food stains immediately, so it does not set. Do not rub.
4. Wash your clothes often. Separate colors from whites.

Slacks should go on a special pants hanger, the clips the top of the waist. Smooth the fabric with your hand, so as to avoid wrinkles. Iron out any wrinkles that might occur.
7. Fold all other garments neatly and place in the dresser drawers.

9. Wrap tape around your finger with the sticky side out to remove lint from a small are quickly.
For a do-it-yourself lint remover, roll up a magazine and wrap wide adhesive tape around it with the sticky side out.
10. Rub zipper teeth occasionally with wax to keep the zipper working smoothly. The stub of a candle works well for this procedure.

Look at yourself in the mirror, before leaving the house. If you see anything looks wrinkled, give it a once over with the iron.
