Step 1: Preparation
- Using a sweater comb, gently remove as many pills as possible. Making sure to only stroke your sweater in one direction.
- Use a stain bar on collars and cuffs to tackle blemishes
Step 2: Handwash
- Using a gentle detergent, hand wash your garment in cool water, lathering gently in a sink, washtub or basin
- Gently submerge the sweater, soap evenly and then soak for 30 minutes.
- Rinse your item in cold water until the tub is free of suds.
Step 3: Finishing
- Lay out your sweater flat on a towel and roll it up like you would a sleeping bag
- Then roll it out and lay the sweater flat to dry
