Most people who choose to live in New England do so because they enjoy the changing seasons. Unfortunately, winter weather conditions can be harmful to our clothing. As snow starts to fall, we often use salt as a way to keep roads, sidewalks, and driveways from icing up. Salt is an abrasive substance, it is important to promptly care for your salt stained clothing. Salt can harm our clothing by fading color, leaving rings, and permanently staining clothing and footwear.
