The modern homemaker has a bewildering number of new fibers, blends, mixtures, and new finishes for cotton and wool to choose from in clothing her family. How to care for each article of clothing so that it will stay attractive and wearable presents a real problem since so many fabrics and finishes are unfamiliar. In this circular we will discuss ( 1) care of fabrics made from the well known fibers which need to be handled differently because of new finishes, (2) care of fabrics made from the several man-made fibers, i.e.: rayon, acetate, nylon, orlon, acrilan, dynel, dacron and vicara blends.
