Fur Coat Maintenance

1. Always hang your fur on a broad-shoulder hanger, never on a wire hanger. Leave enough room in the closet so the fur is not crushed.

2. Never hang your fur in a plastic or rubber-lined bag. Plastic prevents air from circulating, which can dry out the leather in your fur coat. When traveling, store your fur in a cloth garment bag provided by your furrier.

3. If your fur gets wet, shake it out and hang it to dry in a well-ventilated room. Avoid direct heat or radiators, which can damage both fur and leather. After your fur is dry, shake it again. Most furs will take some rain and snow far better than a wool or other winter coat will. If the fur is soaked through, however, take it immediately to your fur retailer for proper treatment. Never comb or brush the fur.

4. Never attempt to mothproof fur yourself. Home treatments are no substitute for professional cleaning and storage.

5. Avoid spraying perfume or hair spray onto your fur.

6. Always store your fur during warm weather with your furrier - never at a dry cleaner. Your furrier is equipped with temperature,

humidity and light-controlled storage facilities to protect fur.

7. Have fur cleaned annually by a fur specialist.

8. Have small rips or tears repaired immediately by your furrier. This will prevent more expensive repairs later.

9. Avoid leaving a fur hanging in bright sunshine. Intense light can cause the fur to oxidize or change color.

10. Avoid sitting on your fur coat on long drives. Furs don't do well with friction or crushing, both of which they experience in your car. Use common sense when sliding into the seat, so you're not too hard on your fur. To avoid a telltale flattened bottom print on your fur, don't sit on it if possible or at least not on the same spot consistently. Shake out any spots like that on your fur when you exit your vehicle. On long drives, it is recommended that you take off your fur and wear it over you like a blanket, if you need to keep warm.

11. Enjoy your fur coat!
