Soap and water aren't always the answer. You have certain fabrics that need a specialised cleaner. Natural fibres like wools and silks can shrink, distort and lose their colour when you wash them in water. Acetate may be shrink resistant, but its fibres weaken in water. There are even synthetic fibres like polyester that can retain oily stains after you wash them. But these items still get dirty and will need to be cleaned. You don't want your fabrics losing their texture or damaging the material finish because of wet cleaning. In addition, normal household laundering may not be able to remove stains that aren't water-based. These will require solvents to treat them. That's where the Craftex Fabric Dry Cleaner 5L comes in.
Dry cleaning removes dirt and stains form fabrics using mineral solvents instead of water. It's used on plenty of materials, from the soft Angora jumpers, lambs skin Astrakhan and heavy Brocade, to the Buckram curtains, camel hair fabrics, twill breeches and trousers, the colourful Chintz, ribbed Corduroy and even Cashmere scarfs and sweaters.

· Here are general rules when it comes to cleaning your fabrics:
· Wash clothing often.
· Don't store dirty fabrics together with your clean clothes, to prevent the clean ones from picking up soiling or odours.
· Clean sweaty or dirty clothes as soon as possible after wearing them. This will protect the fabric and save you from nasty odours.
· Treat small areas of fabric at a time, when hand washing with the Craftex Fabric Dry Cleaner 5L.
· Clean stains as soon as you can, as it is much easier to remove a fresh stain than when you wait for it to set into the fabric.
· Avoid saturating beyond the base of the pile.
· Test for colour fastness and fabric texture to ensure that the Craftex Fabric Dry Cleaner 5L is compatible with your fabric.
· Avoid exposing your delicate fabrics to prolonged direct sunlight.
· Never iron clothes with stains, to prevent them from setting in. First use the Craftex Fabric Dry Cleaner 5L to remove the stains.
· Make sure clothes are completely dry before you put them away. Do not fold and put away damp clothes, to prevent growth of mould and mildew, and also ensure odours don’t form.
· Store your fabrics properly after cleaning them. Avoid small spaces that aren't well-ventilated. You can also put a couple of drops of your favourite essential oil or perfume on a paper towel, scrap of fabric, or even cotton balls, and then place them in your closets and dresser drawers, to keep the fabrics smelling fresh.
· It's recommended that you work with a solvent mask, to avoid breathing in vapour.
· Don't overstuff your dry cleaning machine. Part of the functioning that enables it to clean clothes is the ability for them to be moved around in the machine. The friction allows the Craftex Fabric Dry Cleaner 5L to really work into clothes. If they are just too many, then your clothes won't be able to move around as well, which will prevent them from becoming as clean as they should. Check the manufacturer instructions for your model on the maximum amount of clothing and cleaning solution you can load into it.
· Deep clean your dry cleaning machine every 4-6 months. This is to enhance its efficiency, and prevent it from developing odours from mould and mildew, which can then be transferred to your fabrics.
· Store the Craftex Fabric Dry Cleaner 5L away from heat sources.
