1. Election of detergent
Best detergent sensitive material such as jersey – a soap flakes (2 g per 1 liter of water) and shampoo. But if you’re used to a powder, it is best to use special powders specifically for wool or jersey. Their formula is developed taking into account the characteristics of the natural properties of the fiber-sensitive materials, it provides high detergency and delicate at the same time care, restores and maintains the natural balance of the fibers.
When washing using a powder should be pre-diluted in water. Never sypte powder directly on the jersey: so he can ruin the color of knitwear. Another important rule – do not wash colored wool sweaters, angora, mohair powders containing bleach.
High quality yarn from wool and silk is best to wash baby shampoo and bath foam. For products from mohair and angora remained fluffy, sometimes they even wash the egg shampoo for hair!
2. PREPARATION OF THE WASHING jerseys
Knitted items not recommended to soak for a long time, no more than 20 minutes. Water for soaking should be cool. Let it will be better cold than too hot, because hot water sits and knits dumped.
Knitted clothes always advisable to wash by hand. At the same time it is not necessary to rub, but only gently squeeze: friction can lead to the formation of pellets.
The clothes of different colors should be washed separately from each other, as the villi on one thing may adhere to another, and the subsequent cleaning is very time consuming. A woolen knits and all washed separately from other clothing.
If you still prefer machine washing, refer to the symbols indicated on the sewn

When rinsing wool for the first rinse water must necessarily have the same temperature as the water for washing – or wool can be rolled. Rinse things for the last time, use cold water.
Wool, wash by hand, rinse several times as long as the water does not acquire absolute transparency. At the last water for refreshment of colors, add a little vinegar.
Rinse thoroughly laundered items need to fibers in knitted fabric had no detergent – during the drying of its residues can spoil the color of the product. In the last rinsing water, add rinse, it removes static electricity and give the product fluffy.
Products made of white wool again become pure white, if you add in the rinse water a little borax. Borax – bornonatrievaya salt, sodium borate, in other words, Connections boric acid and sodium. The natural borax found in many lakes, Iran and India. Artificially produced by treating borax boric acid soda.
It is best to not wring jersey, and expand it on a clean sheet. When the sheet gets wet, simply replace it. With this approach, you give water to drain itself and do not damage the knitted fabric by compressing or stretching.
