Care for your Halloween Fabric
Our novelty cotton fabrics are the easiest to care for. They are machine washable in cool or warm water and they can be machine dried. To keep your cotton fabrics soft, just add a little bit of fabrics softener. Proper handling and cleaning will have the following benefits:
- Garments will maintain a fresh appearance longer
- Color fading will be minimized
- Damage to fabric from laundering will be reduced
- The useful life of fabric will be extended, making your money go farther
It is always best to take care of stains promptly. Blot up excess liquid with a clean white cloth or paper towel. Also, avoid rubbing the stained area with a dark colored cloth. Never rub a fresh stain with bar soap as this simply sets stains. Rubbing a stain excessively can also make it spread and damage the fibers, finish and colors. Avoid using hot water on stains of unknown origin. Hot water can set protein stains such as milk, egg, or blood.
Storing your Halloween Fabric
Before storing your Halloween holiday fabrics for an extended period of time, it is important to have them properly laundered to prevent dust, soil and stains from attracting critters. Furthermore, avoid storing your holiday fabrics in attics or basements; these places tend to be vulnerable to mold, mildew, insects and other threats. The best location in your home for Halloween fabric storage is a cool, dry room. If using a closet, make sure there is sufficient air circulation to prevent mold growth. Always store your fabrics out of direct sunlight.
Your Halloween fabric can be stored in bags of linen, cotton or muslin. Do not use plastic bags, cedar chests or cardboard boxes for storage. Fumes from polyurethane foam, cedar closets and acids in unvarnished wood and cardboard can damage your holiday fabrics. Acid free tissue paper can also be employed. If possible, store your holiday fabrics rolled rather than folded to prevent difficult to remove creases from forming. If folding the fabrics is your only option, try to remove the fabric and refold it regularly to prevent permanent creasing.
