Cotton for grownups

Cotton is not just for kids anymore – it is making a comeback in a serious way – but be careful when attempting to clean those special pieces at home, even when the label tells you home cleaning is OK.  Natural fibers are prone to losing color over time, and special designs and styles require professional cleaning to make that piece last more than a few wears.  Also, cotton is more susceptible to damage from harsher home cleaning detergents – even those detergents that claim to be eco-friendly have a higher pH than those used by professional cleaners.
