This is a time of year when you might be wearing silk scarves (or cotton scarves, or blended fibres) instead of thick woolly ones. It’s easy for dirt and makeup to get onto them, and they also can retain smells very easily, such as perfume, or even food smells if you were in a restaurant with an open kitchen!
If you love wearing perfume, you will need to wash your scarves more frequently, as the scent changes over time and on different types of fabrics. What smells wonderful on your skin might smell strange when only on a scarf.
Here is a great video on how to care for your silk scarves. You can wash a bunch of scarves at the same time; not only does it save water, it also saves time, since the preparation is the same whether you are washing one scarf or four.
If your woolly hats, scarves or mittens could use a clean, here’s a great video on how to wash them. In the demonstration, only one hat is being washed, but you could also wash 3 or 4 items at once in your sink, to save time and water.
This time of year, there is also a fair bit of rain and even some slush, depending on whether or not you’ve had much snow. It’s easy for splatter marks to appear on coats. Sometimes those marks our your coat aren’t even weather related – sometimes it’s spilled coffee or tea!
We recommend keeping some stain treating towelettes in your purse during this season, to quickly wipe away any spills or splatter marks that might get onto your coat during this wet season. The stain treating towelettes are excellent for spot cleaning leather, too – perfect if you have a leather coat, purse, or gloves. Here is a step by step video showing exactly how to do it:
