This is the most basic treatment for clothing. It can be done by hand or in the washing machine, with water and detergent. Some fabrics require special care when they have to be washed, such as dry cleaning for example.
After washing, the clothes must be dried. The clothes can be dried outdoors or in a dryer. Again, it is essential to follow the label instructions to avoid damaging the fabric or causing it to shrink.
Bleaching is used to lighten/whiten and remove stains from clothing. It can be done with water along with specific products for this purpose.
Ironing is a treatment that improves the appearance of clothes, leaving them smooth and crease-free or with certain necessary creases. It can be done with an iron or with appropriate industrial machines, such as calenders.
Waterproofing is done to protect clothes from liquids and stains. It is common on clothes made of delicate fabrics, such as silk and leather.
Repellency is a treatment for clothing that prevents the absorption of liquids. It is common on clothing worn on rainy days or for outdoor activities.
These are just some of the treatments that exist for clothing. It is important to remember that each type of fabric requires specific care, and that it is always important to follow the washing and drying instructions, which come on the label of each piece, and conservation of clothes to ensure their durability and appearance.
