Care for Faux Fur Coats

by : teahupoo

Faux fur coats have become very popular, thanks to their affordability and classy appearance. They provide the luxurious feel of the real ones and will keep you nice and warm. Some of them are designed in styles that almost make it impossible to tell that they are faux, because they look so lush and elegant. The question is, how do you choose the best one?

One of the things you want your new faux fur to be is durable. Some of the furs that are being sold are designed to last for decades, while others may only last for a short while. It's easy to be dazzled by coats that have an attractive cut and seemingly lush faux fur. In order to select one of quality, you have to look past the outer appearance of the coat and pay attention to the synthetic fibers that they are made of. Go online and do some research to find out which fibers make the best coats and last the longest. Then when you're actually shopping for one, you will be able to select not just the nicest looking one, but one that will last you for years to come

Don't discount faux fur as not being worth the expense, just because they aren't real. They can provide just as much warmth as real ones at a fraction of the cost. On the same token, just because they are not real fur, doesn't meant that they don't require a lot of care and maintenance to keep them in good condition. There are some tips that will help you keep it looking great.

One of the first things you should do is be sure to store it where it will be kept dry. Water and dampness can ruin the look of your fake fur. Avoid wearing it in wet weather conditions.

Cleaning your coat regularly will also help it to maintain its look and feel. It's important to observe proper cleaning techniques, so the fur won't get ruined. When its time to clean it, don't let it get wet. There are products that will allow you to clean your coat while it is dry. You can go online to find out different ways to achieve this or go to your local dry cleaner and see if they offer this service or can suggest a product to use.

Another way to make sure that your coat always looks great is to buy a soft bristled clothes brush and gently brush the fur once a week. This will remove soil and keep the fur gleaming. It's important to brush it properly. Never brush against the natural grain of the fur. Instead gently brush it in long strokes following the natural lines of the fur. You will be amazed at how nice your coat looks when you're finished. Have your coat professionally cleaned every 6 to eight weeks or to remove stains. By taking good care of your coat, you will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
