Clothing Care Instructions

Here at The Dressing Room we want to help you care for the beautiful pieces you buy from us, so we have compiled a few handy tips to keep your favourite pieces looking like new for longer! Always follow the instructions on the garments care label and use these as helpful suggestions.

 

DENIM

  • Don’t wash your denim too often, premium denim is designed to keep it’s shape.
  • You can either hand wash, machine cool wash at 30 degrees or have your jeans dry cleaned, just remember to wash them inside out with similar colours.
  • Dark denim can be heavily dyed so please be careful of light-coloured clothing, accessories and upholstery, to help with this initially wash with a tablespoon of salt to help set the dye and use Steamery’s Dark & Denim detergent.
  • Coated denim should not be washed, dry clean or a handy tip is to fold them up in a bag, and pop them in the freezer for an hour, as this will kill any bacteria. Marks on the denim can be wiped away.
  • Air dry your jeans & avoid heat when drying your jeans, so no radiators or heated airers. Heat over time breaks the elastic fibres in your jeans making them lose their shape.

 

KNITWEAR

  • Follow the care label on the garment, as cashmere is usually dry clean only. If allowed, hand wash your knitwear using a wool detergent, using either Clothes Doctor No3 Eco Wash or Steamery’s Delicate Wash.
  • Do not wring out your knitwear as this can misshape it.
  • Dry flat to avoid stretching the fibres.
  • It is normal for knitwear to pill over time, gently use a fabric shaver like the Steamery Pilo Shaver to remove bobbles or our Clothes Doctor No20 Beechwood Cashmere Comb.

 

SILK & COTTON CARE

  • All delicate silk should be hand washed with silk detergent (try Clothes Doctor No4 Eco Wash or Steamery Delicate Wash) cool wash, no higher than 30 degrees or dry cleaned.
  • We suggest washing our silk blend t-shirts and cotton t-shirts in a net bag or pillow case to avoid snagging the fabric.
  • Lay flat to dry but do not stretch out the t-shirt when damp as it will lose its shape.
  • Keep your clothes feel fresh with our Steamery Cirrus steamers & Distilled Steam Water, as well as Clothes Doctor Clothing Spritz.

 

JEWELLERY

  • Avoid perfume, lotions and water when wearing plated jewellery, as this can wear away the plating. Best to store your jewellery in it’s packaging and to be cleaned with a soft jewellery cloth.

 

FOOTWEAR

  • We recommend to put a half rubber sole on any leather soled shoes / boots to avoid slipping and to help your footwear last longer, this can be completed at any local cobblers.
  • For suede or light-coloured leathers, we suggest spraying with a leather protector. Try using our Clothes Doctor Leather Care Kit.

 

DRY CLEAN ITEMS

  • Get a crisp pressed finish, reduce smells, and kill bacteria by taking care of your pieces with Steamery’s Cirrus steamer & bottled Steam water (distilled water to help avoid descaling appliances), along with Steamery’s Fabric spray for a quick & easy freshen up and longevity for the pieces in your wardrobe.
