Helpful advice

Don’t worry about ironing - Choose clothes that will survive frequent washing and require little or no ironing. When you select cotton fabric, be sure it includes polyester (50% cotton/50% polyester or 35% cotton/65% polyester).

Steer clear of everyday clothing containing more than 30% rayon, silk, linen or wool. That way you will avoid damaging your clothes by frequent washing, stretching and … ironing!

Think about freedom of movement and comfort - Choose garments with wide openings and some fullness. They are easier and more comfortable to put on. Clothes with back openings are the easiest for dressing when standing up, sitting or even lying in bed, and do not require arm movements.

Elasticity - Fabric elasticity is a key component of comfort, and is determined by the fabric weave and composition. The secret is to select knitted or interlock fabrics. Look for: polyester, interlock, gabardine, cotton/polyester and acrylic knit on the labels.
ake care of your clothes - Before sending your clothes for washing, ensure that all Velcro fastening are well closed. In washers and dryers, open Velcro will attach to fabrics and damage clothing fibres. Your clothes will last longer with just a little care.
