Perfume Is Harmful to the Health of Your Clothes:
Perfumes, colognes and other scented products often contain alcohol and other ingredients, which can discolor your garment. A little dab on the wrist and there goes a slight color change at the cuff. A light spray at the neck and the collar become a problem. So much as you may be tempted to test out the newest scent, do it with care for your clothes. When you’re dressing at home, apply your fragrance well before getting dressed and give it plenty of time to dry.
Jewelry Can Cause Your Clothes to Discolor
Some garments have dyes that are sensitive to the metals in jewelry and when in prolonged contact with your clothes, discoloration may occur. It is a rare occurrence but it can happen.
Color Loss Is Par For The Golf Course
There’s nothing quite like a day of sun and fun spent at the golf course, but bear in mind as you’re getting a sun tan, your golf shirt is getting bleached of some of its color. This is especially true in the shoulder area and above the waist. Salts from perspiration and deodorants will also affect the dyes, sometimes turning them on ‘orange’ hue. That’s why it’s important to quickly professionally clean or launder these garments to remove the offending acids in chlorides. While fast action is no guarantee, it is the best chance you’ve got! Ironically, these color loss problems don’t usually manifest themselves until after the shirt has been processed. So while it might look ‘okay’ to you before hand, the invisible damage shows itself after the fabric has been exposed to heat in the drying process.
