We take care of fur according to all the rules
Fur, like other natural materials, requires increased attention and special treatment. This is especially true for cleaning and repairing products made of genuine leather, fur and their combinations.
Minor repairs of fur outerwear can be done on your own at home. This applies to those cases when a button has come off, a seam on the product has come off a little, or the flesh has been slightly damaged and a small hole has formed. It will be enough to use ordinary cotton thread, a piece of soft leather and a needle when it comes to buttons. Place a piece of leather between the fur and the button and sew the button, without pulling it to the fur, onto a loose thread. A small hole should be sewn up from the flesh side and then combed through the fur.
If the damage is serious - 3 cm or more - entrust the case to specialists.
How to return the former chic to fur
Proper fur cleaning is an equally important process when caring for a fur product, which can either prolong the life of your favorite fur coat, or shorten it if you do the wrong thing.
In most cases, the original chic look of fur clothing can be restored with simple home remedies. So, semolina and starch work well on light shades. It is enough to sprinkle the fur with one or the other, rub in, and then comb out the pile. For dark furs, use a solution of alcohol, vinegar and water, mixed in equal parts. The product should not be kept on the product for a long time: it is necessary to slightly refresh the pile with a brush soaked in the solution and immediately wipe it dry.
Greasy or greasy spots on the collar, pockets and sleeves can be wiped with a mixture of table salt and ammonia in a ratio of 3: 1 and diluted in half a liter of water.
How to dry a fur coat
A high-quality fur product is not afraid of snow and a certain amount of moisture. However, the outer fur clothing should be dried as needed. Especially if you are caught in wet snow. Most importantly, do not try to speed up the drying of a fur coat or vest using electrical appliances (iron, hair dryer) or a heating radiator. Let the clothes "come to their senses" in gentle conditions at room temperature.
All the basic rules regarding the care of natural fabrics and materials are applicable to fur products:
- do not dry on batteries and electrical appliances;
- during long-term storage, choose dark dry places for the product;
- for expensive furs, you should use the storage service in the fur salon;
- store dyed fur separately;
- protect fur from contact with perfumes and other volatile substances.
