Comments :
Of all the manufactured fibers, polyester is the most used. Polyester is the best wash-and-wear fiber. New developments in polyester have created a new attitude towards manufactured fibers. When polyester is blended with other dry-clean only fibers, like wool, acetate, or rayon, the durability of the blended fabric improves and, in some cases, the fabrics can even be made washable, if the percentage of polyester is high enough.
Polyester Fiber Care Tips :
  • Most items made from polyester can be machine washed and dried. Use warm water and add a fabric softener to the final rinse cycle. Machine dry at a low temperature and remove articles as soon as the tumbling cycle is completed.
  • If ironing is desired, use a moderately warm iron.
  • Most items made from polyester can be dry-cleaned. (For specific instructions, refer to garment's sewn-in care label.)
