Cold times are coming soon: let us prepare fur and sheepskin coats

There is a great number of ways to say good-bye to your fur or sheepskin coat because of your own negligence. Lack of proper care is one of them. Your outer clothes may have slightly lost its appearance after long spring and summer spent in a wardrobe. It's not a big deal, it can be fixed, here are some pieces of advice.

Fur

Having pulled your fur coat out after summer "sleep", check out if it needs cleaning. You can do it by blowing on fur. Fur forms sort of a crater under air drag. If it disappears fast, then your fur coat is clean, if not - it needs cleaning.

If fur hair felted, wads and balls appeared, take a comb with long sharp and coarse teeth and brush these places carefully. Did you detect any dust during the process? Then spread it out on a wet sheet with its fur down and beat it.

One can return shine to fur that lost its polish with a small cheesecloth bag filled with milled walnuts. Simply rub your fur coat along "hair growth" with this bag.

In order to clean dirty and greasy places, one can prepare a solution consisting of equal amount of alcohol, table vinegar and water. Apply it on fur with a brush or a sponge, and then clean the surface with clean dry piece of cloth.

Forget you grandma's ways of cleaning neither: put rye or wheat bran in metal plate and put it on fire. Stir the substance constantly until it becomes hot. Disperse bran all over fur and then clean it with a brush. After this procedure, shake your coat and brush its fur.

If you are an owner of a white fur coat that obtained annoying yellow color after a warm season, do not get upset: potato flour or farina may return its white color. Cover fur with it and rub it as if you were washing it.

Sheepskin coat

It is best of all to clean a sheepskin coat with a brush made of natural rubber. Sheepskin coats with enameled (laked) covering shall be cleaned with a piece of cloth wetted with warm soapy water. Should some stains be detected, try to clean them with a clean rubber or a dried bread crust. Talc or oxalic acid, if you can find it, can take care of heavy stains. However, one should have real courage to deal with stains on expensive clothes. If you are not sure, do not risk and take it to a dry-cleaner's.

It happens so that the color of a sheepskin coat can faint after summer. In this case, you should lubricate its grain side with glycerin. Nevertheless, by no means you should do it with chamois products!

When needed, sheepskin coat may be ironed by using special press or regular iron. Iron its grain side through dry cotton cloth at mild heating mode (for synthetic fabrics).

And, if your clothes are not worth a row of pins, do not get upset! You are welcomed here, where you can find plenty of new things!
