First Year Students-Competency 7 Review

Before laundering clothing, consider fabric type, washing method, and water temperature.

Daily clothing care includes checking for stains and needed repairs, as well as folding or hanging clothes after wearing.

Before laundering, clothes should be sorted by color, washing method, and water temperature.

It is important to check pockets and fasten closures before laundering clothes. Lipstick and ink pens don't wash well....

One guideline for drying clothes is to select drying temperature to suit the fabric.

Out of season clothing should be stored clean, in a dry storage area. Cool, moist temperatures are not good for clothes, it is not a good idea to store knits hanging, and you never store fur or leather in plastic!!
