Polyester

Polyester is durable, quick-drying and is easy to clean and maintain

Polyester is a man-made fabric and though it was most popular in the 1970s, it is making a comeback! It is resistant to wrinkles, is durable, quick-drying and is easy to clean and maintain. Here are some tips for keeping your polyester clothing looking it’s best:

  • Machine clean using warm water and a permanent press cycle. Turn your clothing inside out to avoid snags.
  • Hang it to dry or use a low heat setting in the dryer.
  • Fabric softener added in the rinse cycle could make it softer and reduce static.
  • Hang or fold your polyester immediately after drying to avoid creases.
  • Iron only at a low heat. High heat can cause it to melt or scorch!

Polyester can also be safely dry cleaned. Contact Riverbend Cleaners to learn more about our dry cleaning services.
