Wash before wearing

Home & Living

Even brand-new clothing should be cleaned – our liquid detergents can help

A new season for both fashion and the climate will be upon us shortly. Kids will soon return to school, but while they’re still on vacation, spend a day on shopping for new items of school wear, as well new sports attire.

A new look for you too

The upcoming “back to school” week means you can soon dedicate more hours to your Amway business and the new Performance Year (PY).

If you want to present to customers and prospects though, update and refresh your own look as well. Are business dresses looking a bit outdated? Can you now fit into smaller sizes after a summer of improved eating and fitness habits? Maybe you just want to treat yourself – new PY, new look!

Before you and the family walk around proudly in your new outfits, new clothing should be laundered before wearing. The reasons?

  1. Whether you order clothes online or buy them in stores, stocks of clothing are usually stored in huge warehouses – the conditions for which vary.

  2. Some clothing manufacturers use resins to retain the “just ironed” look of fabrics in shops. These can be harmful chemicals or allergens, so it’s better to wash them away before letting fabrics next to skin.

  3. Not knowing if item has been tried on by other people before you and how their personal hygiene habits are you might want to freshen them up before wearing.
