We love easy-to-do ways to clean favorite things yourself and lengthen their lifespan. Especially when it comes down to clothes, the cleaning process needs to be soft for both the item and your skin. So we'd rather avoid the use of unnecessary chemicals. Together with The Laundress, we'll show you how to home clean and freshen-up your beloved blazer, without the extra costs of a drycleaner.

1. Testing and pre-treating
Determine if the item is suitable for home cleaning by treating an inconspicuous part with the Wash & Stain Bar or Stain Solution and a lint-free cloth from The Laundress. The item is NOT suitable for home cleaning if:
- The water or products leaves a stain or causes discoloration.
- The treated area becomes lighter and brighter than the rest of the fabric.
- The fabric starts to crinkle and wrinkle.
When your blazer is suitable, you can treat unwanted odors by spraying a solution consisting of three parts Scented Vinegar from The Laundress and one part water directly onto these areas.
