Although we recommend that you clean your winter clothes right after Summer ends, if you forgot to do so, you should have them cleaned now. We find that repairs are also necessary on Winter clothes, which adds additional time to the cleaning process.
It’s also important for you to check your wools for moth and other fabric pest damage. Moths are more active during the summer and may leave small irregular holes in the wool. Sometimes they may even leave a thin white stain near the hole. Its important to note that garments with moth damage should be cleaned first before repairs are made. Moths can cause weakened fibers and after cleaning these “weak” areas can become holes.
Lets also not forgot about the wardrobe you just wore all summer. Summer items should be cleaned now! And anything that was worn should be put away clean. This will prevent stains from oxidizing and becoming difficult or impossible to remove.
