Ultrasuede® is one of our favorite fabrics to work in creating custom garments and one of the great benefits that the fabric Ultrasuede® provides, is the eased of care to keep them looking beautiful, soft and plush.
Here are a few tips for fabric care from Ultrasuede®;
For everyday upkeep – A quick once-over with a lint brush will restore the sensuous nap and soft luster of Ultrasuede®.
Ultrasuede® also recommends to vacuum the fabric and then dust it gently but thoroughly with a well-wrung damp cloth or sponge. Making sure to take care of not getting the fabric too wet.
Re-dampen your cloth or sponge in clean water, wipe again and let dry overnight. Once completely dry, rejuvenate the fabric with a gentle brushing.
Laundering/Dry Cleaning – All Ultrasuede® fabrics can be dry-cleaned.
Ironing and Storage of Ultrasuede® Garments – Ultrasuede® is a wrinkle-resistant product. It almost never ironing, but if you do iron Ultrasuede®, brush the fabric with a lint brush in one direction and make sure to use a pressing cloth and to press the fabric gently, with your iron set at or below 120ºC/250ºF (“Synthetic Fabrics,” “Low”).
For storage after dry cleaning, wrap your Ultrasuede® garment and hang it in an insecticide- and mothball-free space on a clothes hanger so that it maintains its shape. For hanging your custom blazer properly made with Ultrasuede®, use the extra wide coat hangers from NELSON WADE®.
