1. Cotton fabric:

Cotton fabric has strong alkali resistance, acid resistance, high temperature resistance, and can be washed with various soaps or detergents. Before washing Plain Cotton Printed Fabric, it can be soaked in water for a few minutes, but it should not be too long to avoid color damage. Underwear cannot be soaked in hot water, so as to prevent the protein in sweat stains from solidifying and sticking to clothing, and yellow sweat spots will appear. The new cotton outerwear (trousers) should also be washed with water before storing. On the one hand, the floating color can be washed away to prevent the cloth from becoming hard, and at the same time, it can prevent contamination of other clothing. On the other hand, the slurry on the cloth can be washed away to prevent No worms.

Summer clothes are thin, and the wrinkle resistance of pure cotton is not very good.The best water temperature is usually 30°-35°C when washing, and it should be soaked for a few minutes, but it should not be too long. It should not be wrung out after washing. Keep in the cool place and do not expose to sunlight to avoid fading. Therefore, it is recommended that when using an acid-containing detergent, the optimal water temperature is 40-50°C. When rinsing, you can master the method of "small amount and multiple times", that is, it is not necessary to use a lot of water for each rinse; After each rinse, it should be wrung out and then rinsed a second time to improve the washing efficiency. Dry clothes in a cool and ventilated place to avoid exposure to sunlight and discoloration of colored fabrics.


2. Hemp fiber fabric

Hemp fiber is stiff and has poor cohesion. It is lighter than cotton fabrics when washing. Do not use hard brushes and knead hard to avoid lint on the surface. Do not twist with force after washing. Do not scald colored fabrics with hot water. Do not expose them to sunlight to avoid discoloration.


3.Silk fabric

Before washing, soak in water for about 10 minutes, soaking time should not be too long. Do not wash with alkaline water, you can choose neutral soap or soap tablets, neutral detergent. The lotion should be slightly warm or room temperature. After washing, gently squeeze the water and avoid twisting. It should be dried in a cool and ventilated place. It should not be exposed to the sun, and it should not be dried.


4.Wool fabric

Wool is not alkali-resistant, so use neutral detergent or soap flakes for washing. Wool fabrics will shrink and deform in an aqueous solution above 30°C, so the temperature of the washing bath should not exceed 40°C. Aqueous detergent solutions are usually formulated with room temperature (25°C) water. When washing, do not wash with a washboard. Even if you use a washing machine, you should wash it gently. Do not twist after washing, squeeze by hand to remove water, and drain. It is advisable to use a washing machine for half a minute. It should be dried in a cool and ventilated place, and not exposed to strong sunlight to prevent the fabric from losing its gloss and elasticity and causing a decline in strength.


5.Viscose fiber fabric

The viscose fiber has a large shrinkage rate and low wet strength. When washing, it must be immersed as it is washed. Do not soak for a long time. Viscose fabrics will become hard when exposed to water. Wash them lightly to avoid fluff or cracks. Use a neutral or low-alkali detergent. The temperature of the washing liquid must not exceed 45°C. After washing, fold the clothes, squeeze out a lot of water, and never twist. Avoid washing after washing. Dry in a cool or ventilated place.


6.Polyester fabric

First soak in cold water for 15 minutes, and then wash with general synthetic detergent. The temperature of the washing liquid should not exceed 45°C. Brush the collar and cuffs with dirt. After washing, rinse, wash gently, dry in a cool and ventilated place, do not expose to the sun, do not dry, so as to avoid wrinkles due to heat.


7.Acrylic fabric

Basically similar to polyester fabric washing. First soak in warm water for 15 minutes, then wash it with a low-alkali detergent, rubbing gently. Thick fabrics are washed with a soft-bristle brush, and finally dehydrated or gently wringed off the water. Pure acrylic fabrics can be dried, but blended fabrics should be dried in a cool place.


8.Nylon fabric

First soak in cold water for 15 minutes, then wash with normal detergent. The temperature of the washing liquid should not exceed 45°C. Ventilate and dry after washing.


9. Vinylon fabric

Soak it in room temperature water first, and then wash it at room temperature. The detergent may be a general washing powder. Do not use hot water to avoid expanding and stiffening the Vinylon fiber, or even deform it. Dry after washing to avoid direct sunlight.
