Though the care label on your garment remains the standard instructions, Forever New® offers the following helpful tips:
To preserve your fine garments, Forever New® recommends hand washing in a basin of cool water with a tablespoon of Forever New®, Ovación®, Variance® Forever New Liquid® or Stretch®. Several items can be washed at the same time by starting with light colors to darks. Rinse garments thoroughly in clean water and gently squeeze excess water out. Rolling the garments in a clean dry towel will also remove residual moisture. Do not twist or wring garments. Lay flat to dry.
For fine fabrics and delicate garments, avoid the dryer. Heat will fade dark colors and deteriorate stretch fibers and elasticity of garments. Also avoid drying colors in direct sunlight.
We recommend testing for colorfastness by applying Forever New® on an inside seam of the garment with a clean cloth. The color or dyes should not bleed onto the cloth.
For machine washing delicates, lingerie, hosiery and sweaters, placing them in a mesh or lace washing bag on the delicate / gentle cycle will greatly extend the life of your garments.
HE – High Efficiency Washers – Front Loading and Top Loading Forever New® is a high efficiency wash. As a concentrated granular wash, use only half the amount of regular laundry detergents, as little as 1/8 cup. Please follow instructions on our label.
Stain Remedy® can be directly applied to the stain. Stubborn stains will need pre-treatment and several applications, followed by a regular wash. Air dry garment and check the area. Do not use dryer as dry heat will set in a stain.
Use a toothbrush for delicate areas such as lace, chiffon, and mesh fabrics. Carefully brush the stain with Stain Remedy® diluted with water. To rinse, gently blot with a clean damp towel several times.
