Caring For Your Sweater

With the chilly weather outside, everyone seems to be wearing sweaters, a real sign of fall!  But what do we do with our sweaters when they need cleaning?

The truth is it’s very confusing to the consumer to keep the sweater looking like new after wearing it several times. We’re told to read the label carefully and to follow the instructions. Yet, sometimes when the instructions are followed even most carefully, your sweater still takes on a new life of its own!Sweater Cleaning
