While steeping ourselves in the new trends emerging on the catwalks, it's worth remembering how to take care of your treasured buys. We love the teeny-tiny retro advice book that's just landed on our desks. How To Take Care Of Your Clothes (Retro Metro) is "advice from the ancestors" updated for today's modern woman. We approve of its fuss-free approach: "There is no need to thrust every garment into the washing machine as soon as you wear it." Instead, simply shake, brush and air, before returning your latest investment pieces back to your wardrobe. Good advice for low-maintenance, green living. There's tips on pressing, patching and our favourite - patterns for hanging bags. blogs, 07 March, 2012 :: 2012-03-12 15:49
