FUR CARE CONTINUED

FUR CARE

    1. Always store your fur garments in cold storage when you are finished wearing them for the season or not using them. Pologeorgis is an authorized Furcare Specialist and offers fur storage with temperature, humidity, and light-controlled vaults at our Manhattan Atelier to protect your fur from drying out, oxidizing and prematurely aging.  
    2. Clean your fur annually or every other year by an Authorized Furcare Specialist only - never a dry cleaner. Your fur may not look dirty, but it is important to gently remove all microscopic dust, salt, makeup, perfume, and airborne pollutants to keep it soft and supple.
    3. Repair small rips or tears immediately by an Authorized Furcare Specialist. This will prevent more expensive repairs later.
    4. Always hang your fur on a broad-shoulder hanger, never a wire hanger. Allow enough space so your fur is not crushed.
    5. Never hang your fur in bags of any type. Plastic or rubber-lined bags prevent air from circulating, which can dry out the leather. Cloth bags can also cause wear and broken hairs over time where the bag rests against the fur.
    6. Do not store your fur in a cedar closet. Cedar wood absorbs moisture, which can dry out your fur. Also, cedar closets do not protect from dust, dirt, and insect damage.
    7. Do not store your fur with moth balls. Moth balls react with moisture in the air to produce a gas that acts as fumigant. This chemical reaction can cause irreparable damage to your fur (not to mention a lingering odor).
    8. Avoid spraying perfume, hairspray or other chemicals on your fur. The alcohol content in these products will dry the leather and stiffen the guard hairs.
    9. If your fur gets wet shake it out and hang to dry in a well-ventilated room. Avoid direct heat or radiators, which can damage both fur and leather. If your fur is completely soaked, take it immediately to your Authorized Furcare Specialist for proper treatment.
    10. One of the beauties of fur is it can be repaired or remodeled. Your Authorized Furcare Specialist can find matching fur and make any repairs or help you remodel it into fresh, new fashion.
