Before Cleaning After Cleaning
What You Need To Make Your Suit As Good As New!
You will need:
- Woolite Extra Delicate detergent
- Fingernail cleaning brush
- Bucket or Sink
In a sink or washtub fill with very cold water. Add a generous amount of woolite detergent.
Place the suit in the cold water and gently slosh up and down in the water. Let it sit for a few minutes.
Then, turn the right side onto your hand so the inside with the glue and
coloring are facing up. Now pour some of the liquid detergent right onto the
glue. Then take the toothbrush or fingernail brush and gently brush in one direction
repeatedly until the glue just rolls off the suit. It should not take that long,
unless you used the 3M. Nasty stuff. Be patient for it will come off.
Once all the guck is off, empty sink of the soapy water and fill back up with
more cold water. Slosh the suit around and empty and repeat until there are no
suds. Usually it takes about 4 -6 times.
When the suit is suds free, place it on a towel on a flat surface for only
about a half hour until the main amount of water is out of the suit. Then drape
suit over a hanger and let it dry. You will have a nice fresh suit again!
Now one important thing I would like to mention that really is not funny and
very important. If you do intend to sell your suit or, if your feeling
charitable and just want to give it away, please be sure to also clean the
crotch area of the suit the same way you cleaned the glue. No need to explain
that one, but many with many of you girls, that one goes right over the head.
It is very simple and well worth it to keep your suits in good condition.
Same thing goes for the men. The suits you wear on stage are the frame to your
presentation. It is important to keep the whole package clean and 100%. If you
are one of those that wait until you are at the show to put your coloring on,
bring plastic wrap with you and put in around the elastic on the suit so you
prevent the dreaded brown stains on the outside of your suit. That looks
horrible from the audience and the judges chair. Most men have a tendency to let
that one happen. Pay attention.
