How to wash a sweater
When the weather outside gets frightful, it’s time to bust out the sweaters. With these tips, you’ll learn to keep your sweaters smooth, with less fuzzing and pilling.
- Before you wash your sweater
Before you go and throw any sweater in the washer, read the label to make sure it’s washer safe. Keep sweaters separated from rougher, heavier fabrics like denim. Turn them inside out, button any and all buttons, and zip up any zippers.
- Dry it the right way
If your sweater is dryer safe, toss it in and use the lowest heat setting possible. If the dryer isn’t an option, then lay your sweater out flat to air dry. With these simple instructions, you can keep all of your sweaters soft, smelling great, and protected from pilling and fuzz.
- Avoid stretching and fading
The conditioning power of Downy also helps prevent stretching and fading, so your sweaters will stay looking newer, longer.
