To keep your loungewear pieces soft and cozy for longer, air dry whenever possible. Knits and silk fabrics should always be air dried. To help them retain their shape, gently smooth the fabric by hand after washing and reshape to the desired finish before letting dry laying flat.
Word To The Wise: Never, ever machine dry knit or silk blends. Even if something only has 5% or 1% cashmere, wool, or silk, do not put it in the dryer. The heat from the dryer can cause irreversible shrinkage.
If you prefer to machine dry everyday fabrics like cottons or synthetics, opt for a low temperature setting or air fluff. Toss in a set of Dryer Balls to fluff fibers, cut down on static, and make drying more efficient.
Want to refresh your loungewear? Try steaming! Sweaters, leggings, and other loungewear pieces don't necessarily have to be washed with every wear. To keep things fresh, use a hand steamer to gently revive the fabric in between wears.
