Polyester & Nylon (Synthetic Fibers)
Comfortable to wear
Easy care, and dries quickly
Heat sensitive, can be damaged by hot irons and high drying temperatures
Bright colors fade readily to sunlight
Discoloration and staining from perspiration
Usually dry cleanable in any solvent
If washable, use permanent press cycles, which are shorter and gentler than cotton cycles.
If machine drying, use medium to low temperatures. Remove immediately and hang to minimize ironing.
Synthetic fibers hold onto oily stains, and we all know that oil and water do not mix. So if you get an oil-based stain on a polyester blouse, it will not be removed in normal washing. This is a stain that is best handled by your professional cleaner.
