How to wash the collar well

A white shirt is a hallmark of formal business style. It is a versatile, but somewhat impractical wardrobe item. The collars absorb sebum and sweat, and the cuffs get dirty with everything from dust on the desk to food debris.

The question of how to wash the collar and cuffs is always relevant, and it is not necessary to use expensive laundry detergents. OBOZREVATEL has collected effective "folk" life hacks that have been tested by time and generations.

Cuffs and collars should be soaked before washing, applying detergents directly to the soiled areas. The shirt can be washed either by hand or in a machine, choosing the appropriate mode indicated on the label.

Wash shirts with delicate detergents to prevent damage to the fibers. For your convenience, we have published step-by-step instructions to help you wash the collar and cuffs quickly and efficiently.

Step 1. Take a special clothes brush and rub the collar with it. This step is necessary to remove dead skin particles, sweat, and grease.

Step 2. Soak the collar in warm water. Rub the fabric thoroughly with laundry soap. For stubborn dirt, you can use a soft brush. Leave the collar soaking for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3. Rinse the collar thoroughly. If the streaks on the fabric cannot be removed, you can try a little dishwashing detergent that effectively removes grease and dirt. After that, wash the shirt in a machine or by hand, using a powder for delicate fabrics.

By the way, a popular drugstore product will remove yellowing from the collar. You just need to apply the pre-prepared paste to the stained areas and leave it on for 20-30 minutes - during this time, it should delicately whiten the fabric. Read about the ingredients and proportions in the article.
