Prepare your Halloween costumes for the most terrifying night of the year! Ensure you wash and disinfect your costumes before using and once Halloween is over, before storing them.
You can use WYX Disinfectant Laundry Cleanser, together with your regular detergent, to ensure all your costumes are clean and disinfected, ready to wear! Here are some tips on how to wash and store them to ensure they stay in perfect condition until their next use.
Laundry machine wash:
Set a delicate programme on your machine with low temperatures (30º – 40º) and slow spin. This will ensure delicate fabrics are not damaged. Hang to dry. Do not use a dryer as this may damage or shrink your costume. Use Laundry Detergent and WYX Disinfectant Laundry Cleanser for brilliant, disinfected results and a lasting fragrance.
Fill a clean sink or bucket with cold water. Pretreat the item if necessary, then turn the item inside out. Pour Laundry Detergent and WYX Disinfectant Laundry Cleanser into the sink or bucket following the dosing instructions mentioned on the label and mix with water. Gently submerge the costume and agitate water with your hands. Soak the costume, rinse well with cold water to remove all the detergent.
If the label on your costume says “dry clean only” you will not want to hand wash or place it in the machine as it may shrink, fade or run. The best option is to look for your nearest Dry Cleaner and take it immediately after the festivity. Do not wait too long if the costume is too dirty as the fabric may absorb the stain.
Store Halloween costumes:
Always store your costumes in a sealed or garment bag inside the wardrobe. Try to avoid places where mould can appear and in direct sunlight. This will ensure your costumes are fresh and clean until the next Halloween party comes along!
