Wear these fabrics for a cooler summer.
The forecast for the next five months in Arizona: Hot. Hot. Hotter.
Arizona summers are scorchers, with temperatures consistently in the triple digits. The intense Valley heat makes dressing for work and play especially daunting. With that in mind, the clothing experts at Prestige Cleaners offer up fabric dos for Phoenix summers:
Cotton. Simple cotton will keep your body cool, as opposed to heat-trapping wool or polyester. At Prestige, customers can request adding starch to help their cotton hold up better in the heat.
Linen. Light, breathable, and always stylish, linen is the perfect fabric for the hottest of Arizona days. Did you know that dry cleaning linens and cottons helps keep the fresh-pressed look longer. Wrinkles are part of the carefree, lived-in beauty of linen. Hate to iron? Lightly spray your garment with a water bottle and smooth over wrinkles with your hand.
Cotton eyelet. Cotton eyelet fabric has holes that allow for ventilation, providing refreshing airflow.
Jersey. Lightweight and flowy, jersey hides sweat and is the perfect fabric for breezy dresses and lightweight cover-ups.
Light colored fabrics. White, cream, and pastels reflect sunlight and don’t absorb heat like dark colors do.
Chambray. Chambray often comes in a higher thread count, which means it’s a finer weave and more breathable fabric.
Seersucker. A thin, lightly puckered fabric that’s fantastically lightweight, seersucker not only keeps you cool, it looks cool.
Rayon. Best in dry heat, since it’s still not a natural fiber, rayon won’t wick away moisture as well as cotton but is still a viable option.
Hot weather translates into more stains, sweat, and clothing wear & tear. The clothing care professionals at Prestige Cleaners are here to help keep your attire in tip-top shape.
